BEAT ‘I just wish to feel you’ [CANCELLED]

STUK closes its doors and cancels all public events until December 13, as a result of the measures imposed by the Federal Government on October 30, and out of solidarity with everyone fighting COVID-19. All ticket holders will be contacted directly.

Take care, and stay safe.

BEAT ‘I just wish to feel you’ is the first full-length dance production by Jenna Jalonen, produced by Straatrijk. After their successful performance last year, we're happy to have them back for a rerun.

Everything in life exists thanks to energy waves. These vibrations create the rhythms that drive us and make our hearts beat. We share the same pace, the same pulse, we are connected through our heartbeat. But what happens when the beat disappears?
In BEAT ‘I just wish to feel you’ B-boy Jonas Verwerft and contemporary dancer Jenna Jalonen reflect on the meaning of human touch within a world of social media and instant communication. They play with raw physicality, and use urban and social dance forms as tools for inspiration in search for new ways of movement. Sound artist Adrian Newgent joins them on stage, composing the live soundscape in dialogue with the dancers. The result is an incredibly physical, acrobatic, yet intimate duet about human relations.
