Andreas Hannes works again with the practice of continuous skipping – as in skipping down the street. In Tremble, a group of dancers embarks on a journey without a destination. They move across the stage by drawing geometrical patterns and falling in and out of rhythm. Together, they form a body that dynamically moves through space.
With the sustained cadence and original music of composer Rival Consoles, Tremble highlights a space that is in transit. Through the continuous flow of skipping, you are pulled into the movement; as if you were sitting on a moving vehicle, trembling, you become part of a road-trip, in which your memories and inspiration intertwine.
"Hannes takes a walk with the audience and plays with expectations. By constantly giving his choreography a new twist, he lets us experience a feeling of infinity in all simplicity." (Theaterkrant, The City, ITS 2018)
Andreas Hannes (1987, GR) is a percussionist, filmmaker, performer and choreographer (School for New Dance Development - AHK, 2018). He summarizes his artistic work with the concept of distances, either relational, physical and/or metaphysical. Tremble is the result of the Moving Forward Trajectory 2018/19. In 2019 he received the Young Artsupport Award Amsterdam.
