Dance

Daniel Linehan + Femke Gyselinck [sold out]

An intimate night with two original dance solos that are bound to blow you away.

In 2007, young dancer Daniel Linehan impresses New York with Not About Everything. More than ten years since its debut, the solo performance still touches audiences around the globe. Linehan enters the stage and starts spinning around - what starts out slow turns into an obsessive, complex and insane performance. In a veritable tour de force, Linehan touches the borders of his body and mind by simultaneously dancing, thinking and interacting with the crowd.

Comfort, distraction, passion, joy, beauty... Music can offer it all, music helps us to express the unspeakable. For dancer and choreographer Femke Gyselinck, this power of music is an infinite source of inspiration. In the short, intimate solo set to music by Palmistry, Gwilym Gold and Hiatus Kaiyote, music and physical expression melt together into one voice.
