R.I.O.T. Outside the box
7 feb20:00 - 20:50Online
With regrets we have to cancel the livestream of R.I.O.T. Outside the box. Despite all the measures to prevent Corona infections in the cast and crew, it did happen. According tot the quarantine-regulations we have to stop the production at this moment. We are hoping to find an alternative moment to finish the inspiring workprocess and show R.I.O.T. to you, our audience.
We will keep you posted.
Two and a half years ago, oppressed voices and global unrest inspired Alida Dors to create a new dance chronicle: R.I.O.T. (Ready In Order To). The performance was made under challenging circumstances, postponed and rescheduled to January 2022. Yet it is still not possible to perform in theaters in front of an audience. During this time of great social unrest, Alida believes it is especially important to showcase R.I.O.T. She has chosen a particular form: on Monday, February 7th she will present R.I.O.T. Outside the box at Theater Rotterdam – a one-off livestream that takes place both in the streets of Rotterdam and in the theater.
Mechanisms of an uprising
In a mixture of dance, film and music, R.I.O.T. explores the mechanisms of an uprising. How individuals get stuck in the system. How a lone voice gains power thanks to a group. How sisterhood and brotherhood may arise in times of increasing polarization. But above all, it explores the transformative power of hope, that gives us wings and lends direction to the future.
Alida has made a lot of new material for this one-off livestream. The emphasis is less on anger and disruption – phenomena that dominate the news these days – and more on the healing power of group formation and the inner world of people in resistance.
