Hip-hop choreographer Donna Chittick makes a diptych about sisterhood and brotherhood, to the beats of DJ Lovesupreme.
Four* dancers show us the women of today: confident, tough and fragile at the same time. Donna Chittick gets her inspiration not only from her own life, but also from what she sees around her: the everyday existence of the independent woman and the choices that come her way. What role does your living environment play? Who influence you? In a mix of urban dance styles, Chittick goes in search of female power.
*at Theater Rotterdam Together will be performed by three dancers
A performance with four dancers full of masculine energy. Pride, strength and self-confidence seem to lead to mutual rivalry, yet the men are connected. Their common struggle connects them and at the same time seems to force them into the role of the alpha man. The men put each other to the test, and at the same time have each other's trust.
