Behind closed doors

BEHIND CLOSED DOORS

Martijn Dirk Joling and Amy Pender show in their bitterly angry "Behind Closed Doors" that the modern human might not have come that far.
Two people in suits stalking each other, playing clapping games like school kids and wrestling. After this, you will no longer be able to see pictures of statesmen greeting each other without a smile.                                      Antje Landmann - Die Rheinpfalz| Kultur Regional

A TRIO OF DUETS


DEAL OR NO DEAL

* This duet is performed by a married couple and therefore physical contact is not restricted due to COVID-19 rules/regulations.


Behind closed doors is a dance piece questioning the idea of ​​secret agreements made by authorities, organisations and people in power. Why are there secret agreements and for whom are they secret? Is information hidden to protect, to mislead, or for other reasons..

?

Due to COVID-19, the piece, which has its main focus on handshakes, gained new and important meaning in 2020.
