Flip-flap-flop: turn to the back three time with your left, bottom section anticlockwise, middle section rip-rip and there it is! Green is upside down. A dance show like a Rubik’s cube.

Rubiks cube, the super puzzle, who hasn’t heard of it? It was THE hit toy in the eighties. Popular with people of all ages. If you were unable to solve it, well, then you simple took a screwdriver, pried all the little sections loose and reassembled it. 

The dance performance Rubik is an invitation to turn, twist, duck and tilt, and see the world a little differently every time. The show deals with how people can be assembled and with interaction as an eternally available option. So: come by, let go of everything and experience the brightly coloured living puzzle for yourself.

Erik Kaiel is a Lebanese-American choreographer who was born in Austria. He travels across Europe, North America and Africa as a teacher, dancer and choreographer. His current home base is The Hague. Kaiel has made a great number of shows for children and young audiences. His style is very physical and energetic. He presented No man is an Islandat an earlier edition of Tweetakt/Kaap. Over the past few years, Erik has performed several successful TYA shows here, including TetrisO SnapMurikamifikation and Onstuitbaar. His work is appealing, and is often set in unusual locations: underground stations, emptied swimming pools and department stores. In addition to working as a choreographer, Kaiel is the artistic director of Crosstown Den Haag and a teacher at ArtEZ Dansacademie in Arnhem. At this year’s Tweetakt you can also see The pusher, the pulsewhich he made with DOX as part of DOX PLAYGROUND #1.
