‘Withering’ is a solo choreographed firstly for The Running Concerts, a small Korzo production. It was later developed and awarded with the 2nd prize for best performance at the Solo-Tanz-Theatre Festival in Stuttgart, 3rd prize for choreography at the Warsaw Zawirowania Choreography Competition, and 1st prize at ’10 Sentidos’ festival in Valencia, Spain.
* (The piece is to be developed into a film in the future, in collaboration with the filmmaker, Nicola Balhuizen Hepp)
We find ourselves looking at the last phase of an elderly person suffering from dementia and full of ache; a body getting to its physical end. This poetic solo will take us deep down into the real location of its soul, the colours of life and almost forgotten memories.
