During the Nederlandse Dansdagen 2020, breakdancer Redouan Ait Chitt and percussionist Dominque Vleeshouwers worked together for the first time in their virtual residency, resulting in the impressive video production Blurred Lines. But Blurred Lines was only the beginning and has inspired Redo and Dominique to create a new performance A New Dawn: For New Tomorrow.
The performance explores what inspires us as human beings, what our passion is, what makes us happy and how we give new meaning in a new reality. Improvisation will be a big part of the performance because of this.
Redo and Dominique are building a modular performance on the following dance festivals: Schrittmacher, International Breakdance Event, Dutch Dance Days, and the Urban Dance Festival. In March 2022 they will perform the full performance during the brand new Birds of Paradise festival in Utrecht, with an international tour coming up. A new dawn: for new tomorrows part 3 can be seen during the Nederlandse Dansdagen.
