“Dog Days dismantles theatrical mechanics and the desire for entertainment, to reclaim the stage as a place of encounter between human and human.” —De Standaard
This complex, mathematical, and ultimately ecstatic hour-long work features eight performers who surrender themselves to a single movement: the jump. Dutch choreographer Jan Martens’s conceptually rigorous and dynamically engaging The Dog Days Are Over has been captivating audiences across Europe since 2014. This astounding piece helps confirm Brussels’ continued position as a hothouse for compelling new dance. 70 minutes.
Don’t miss two free bonus performances on Thursday, March 8 at 6:30 & 7:30 pm in the Cargill Lounge as Jan Martens presents an in-gallery showing of excerpts from his latest work, Rule of Three. A meditation on transformation, the piece features three performers who slowly merge to become one body with a clear voice. Part of Target Free Thursday Night.
