Jens van Daele / Burning Bridges
NachtHexen IV: Battre
NachtHexen IV: Battre, the fourth unmissable dance concert in Jens van Daele's Night Witches cycle. Its recurring themes include courage, perseverance, compassion and regret.
NachtHexen IV: Battre is about an eternal struggle and the indiscriminate application of the notion of 'an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth'. It features a cutting-edge dance duel, in which the two female dancers never give each other an inch, fighting iron with iron. Two equal forces in a tooth-and-nail battle. It is a performance that culminates in a draw. Ultimately, there are only losers here. Jens van Daele presents an energetic, powerful, yet calming performance featuring haunting live music and a poetic touch that strikes at the heart of the spectator, leaving the audience on the edge of their seats.
Alongside lovers of dance, NachtHexen IV: Battre is also particularly suitable for music and theatre fans.
