2014 –
Dance has often played an important part in Jan Decorte’s theatre productions. Indeed, he has worked with Charlotte Vanden Eynde (Amlett, Cirque Danton), Riina Saastamoinen (Bêt Noir), Sharon Zuckerman (Betonliebe+Fleischkrieg Medeia) and Anne Teresa De Keesmaeker (dieu& les esprits vivants). In 2010 he created his first ‘real’ dance performance, Tanzung, with Taka Shamoto and Tibo Vandenborre.
Much Dance is the next step in Decorte’s work. In his search for abstraction he confronts his idiom with the poetry of the body, intense and fragile. Much Dance is a meeting of four people, an extraordinary love story. No virtuosity, no trained bodies, no rigid grammar of dance. But the anarchy of movement, the faltering beauty of failure.
