What Remains | Ultima Vez/Zoë Demoustier | BE
16:00h | Verkadefabriek, grote zaal | €19, youth €10, friend €17
More information on this performance
With What Remains, the international dance company Ultima Vez returns to Boulevard after the resounding success of their performance Birds in 2022. Zoë Demoustier, choreographer at the company, brings different generations together on stage: young people who are starting their lives and older dancers who are leaving life behind. The outcome of this encounter is a dance performance between old and young that reveals similarities and differences in movements and body language.
Three elderly people, one young adult and six children share the stage in What Remains. This mixed group brings together different experiences of the body; young bodies still unwritten by experience and aging bodies filled with memories. There is a relationship between making memories and the fear of slowly losing them. What is the process of acquiring and losing memories like? What if that process is reversed, or if we break the expectations of young and older bodies? Can the loaded contrast between the two phases of the body be erased?

Hush | De Dansers | NL
17:30h | Zuiderpark, Populierencirkel | €12, youth €10
In Hush, the dancers and musicians of the successful performance Shake Shake Shake (2019) find each other again. Dancers become musicians and musicians become dancers. The musicians and dancers are there for each other. To be able to carry the world, it helps not to be alone.
Programmer Gido Broers: “What is so great about De Dansers is that they bring music and dance together very strongly. Music leads movement and becomes dance, bodies dictate the music. Thus, great for both dance and music lovers. In Hush, the dancers come together, seek comfort, repel, make room for vulnerability, get energy from each other, allow them to not know for a while. The music takes you to the encounters between the dancers, the intensity is built up, and the discharge is grand. At the end of the performance, you have the feeling that you have experienced many different emotions – without it getting heavy – together with the dancers, who each have their own body language.”
A True Story | 71BODIES/ Daniel Mariblanca | NO
15:00h, 20:00h| Maaspoort Den Bosch (sporthal) | €19, friend €17
Choreographer Daniel Mariblanca collaborates in A True Story with national and international artists and creates a performance in which dance, live music, visual art and performance come together. The performance is based on the lives of the dancers themselves – children, teenagers and adults – who, like Mariblanca, are transgender.
Daniel: “We, transgender people, cannot go through a transition alone. We need all of society to make the transition with us. For this, we need to hear and consider all sides of the story. The essence of A True Story is to illuminate the complexity of all experiences; not only of the transgender person, but also how the family experiences the gender transition of their child, parent, partner or friend.”
