Move (on) takes as its starting point a meeting of a group of actors and performers:
the young actress Btissame Bourrich
the Russian actress Evgenia Brendes
the French stage actress Olga Mouak
the Palestinian actor and author Atta Nasser
Haider Al Timimi, artistic director of the theatre company Kloppend Hert
the Moroccan dancer and choreographer Youness Khoukhou
the Brazilian dancer and actor Gustavo Vieira
the tg STAN members Jolente De Keersmaeker and Frank Vercruyssen
Around the table – on which poems, novels, and plays have been piling up for weeks – they build a shared story. The building blocks include the dialogues of the English playwright Dennis Kelly, a dull growling that expresses the sense of uneasiness in our society. They blend with voices from the work of the Palestinian Mahmoud Darwish or the Syrian playwright Saadallah Wannous, bursts of wild hope but simultaneously exclamations of shared powerlessness.
Move (on) is a choreography of bodies and texts. The piece probes the intersections between inner worlds and their external expressions, the point of friction between the individual and the group.
To reinforce the basic content of the play, STAN is collaborating with Moussem (Nomadic Arts Centre) and theatre company Kloppend Hert. Sharing as it does STAN’s love of Arabic literature, Moussem will act as a sounding board and provide the collective with a wide range of contemporary and classical texts from the MENA region (Middle East and North Africa). Kloppend Hert, in which choreographer, director, dancer and actor Haider Al Timimi is a pivotal figure, is also an important partner in this creation. Kloppend Hert strives for cultural hybridity, for a cross-border space where various influences can merge to form a single entity.
But it begins at the beginning, an open playing field and a conversation.
"You think, - and I am not criticizing -, but you think that things work out fair, but they don't, they really don't. This isn't the fair world you think it is, Danny, and I'm not saying what you believe is wrong because I love you for that, but now is not the time for that, because this is now."
