THE GREY
VAN OPSTAL & NEDERLANDS DANS THEATER II


This work invites you into a story. From a desire to stop time, it explores ways to rethink or re-live a passage in life. A path made through choices and actions. Every choice potentially being a pivotal moment, with an array of different outcomes. 
...
      A lapse...
This soundless stolen time allows us to wonder with growing questions. What has happened? Where do we go? What are the consequences? Are these matters of faith? Like clouds hovering between the sky and earth, they convey the hiddenness as well as the manifestation of the divine. Will we ever truly know what was meant to be?

"Circulating movements become meetings, an individual is taken in by the group only to be spit out again. This is how an image of unending movement unfolds, flowing or staccato, fast or delayed.” — NRC

"They don’t take the audience by the hand, but in the abstract narration, give space to their own interpretation on the occurances that will onfold on the still to follow paths.” — Leidsche Dagblad
