In search of freedom, lightness and unexpected encounters. What stops us from embracing life and breaking the restrictions we impose on ourselves and each other? Conny Janssen Danst presents the new performance Ziel, in which the desire to live life to the full is leading. With a rock-solid, adventurous group of dancers made up of young talent and familiar faces.
From hushed moments to exuberant celebrations, from painful confrontations to hopeful expectations
Conny Janssen's latest work puts us in the middle of life, with all its uncertainties and contradictions. Can we accept life without becoming paralysed by the challenges ahead? Are we willing to take risks? Ziel is an homage to life, with all its ups and downs, its surprises and disappointments
‘In her performances we recognise oureslves and the will to connect. Her dancing brings worlds together.’
- Ahmed Aboutaleb
