Beyond the Edge

No highs without lows. No end without a beginning. In Beyond the Edge, a group of young people move across a life-size installation of ladders. A performance about how we all try to get higher, but depend on each other in every position.

Circus and dance maker Piet Van Dycke is only 26 but already a well-known name at home and abroad. In 2014, he danced for the first time in Karolien Verlinden's IABULEUS production dUb. In Beyond the Edge, he tests the limits of a mixed cast of young people aged between 13 and 23, at the intersection between acrobatics, dance and parkour. Physical dependence has never been more exciting.

Beyond the Edge is a project of the cultural centres of Maasmechelen, Genk, Heusden-Zolder, Houthalen-Helchteren, Lommel and Tongeren together with HET LAB/Krokusfestival and fABULEUS. In previous years, they already realised SNAP XL (2018) and We Go Places (2021) together.
