the exact position of things


from: Trouw

In the excellent ‘the exact position of things’, two female dancers in the half-light skim around disorientation and the loss of reality. Sometimes they shuffle like old ladies fussing about laying an unsightly carpet, sometimes they are transported ecstatically in ‘silly’ dances that hilariously but poignantly underline the mental alienation. A desolate universe in which words lose their meaning and people hold on to solid shapes to save themselves from going under.
