The International Choreographic Arts Centre in Amsterdam (ICK) brings internationally acclaimed choreographers to The Netherlands. This season Belgian choreographer and artist Kris Verdonck performs his piece ‘I/II/III/IIII’ with dancers pertaining to ICK.
Kris Verdonck changes the stage to a sort of human puppet show. Four ‘identical’ dancers hang like marionettes inside a large sized machine. Within that space Kris Verdonck created a choreogra-phy: a solo, a duet, a trio and a quartet ensue. They remind us of the white birds from Swan Lake, but also of animal carcasses dragged along, floating angels, crashing human bodies and every-thing in between.
