Blind Spot (stadswandeling)
In a world where we are surrounded by stimuli, we often close off our senses. In Blind Spot: Maastricht choreographer Jelena Kostić makes visible and tangible what is right in front of us. In a theatrical walk full of contrasts, the urban environment and dance come together to open our eyes to new perspectives.
With headphones on, the audience takes a walk through the raw Sphinx Quarter, starting at the Blanche Dael Branderij (coffee roasters). In various choreographies, Jelena plays with our ideas and expectations of space and our surroundings.
After the success of Blind Spot: Tilburg in the summer of 2021, choreographer Jelena Kostić creates an entirely new experience for Maastricht, especially for Nederlandse Dansdagen. With a dance language strongly influenced by freerunning and the raw industrial environment of the Sphinx Quarter, Jelena shows the city from a new perspective.
30 Minutes prior to the walk, you will receive a free cup of coffee at the Blanche Dael Branderij.
