Kokers - Gaia Gonnelli


Gaia Gonnelli

A city, a forest, a house, a playground...

Two dancers build their own world with cardboard tubes. How can you build a world or break it down? Do you build alone or together? Which games can you play? Who determines the rules to make the game even more fun? In 'Tubes' two dancers discover how to play together. A visual performance about having fun, challenges and being there for each other.

After the successful performances Colour (2+) and Upside-Down (2+), Gaia Gonnelli once again creates an original and imaginative performance for the youngest children. In her work she combines dance, theatre, live music as well as other art disciplines. Her interest lies in creating work that encourages children to use their own imagination. Tubes is her third collaboration with Wiebe Gotink, who also composed the music for Colour and and Upside-Down. Wiebe's fascination lies in the fusion of dane and music, and the inexhaustible potential to play with it.

"Gonnelli’s dance is childlike without being childish."
