Choreographers Elisabeth Borgermans and Thomas Vantuycom join forces; together with nine young people they create a dance performance based on the masterpiece of the Russian composer Igor Stravinsky: Petrouchka.

However, the starting point is not the original staging from 1911 but an in-depth reading of the music. Stravinsky’s penchant for contrast, rhythm and speed is typical of modern man at the beginning of the twentieth century, when electricity and machines changed the urban landscape and energized life in every sense.

About the makers
Elisabeth Borgermans is a Belgian choreographer and dancer. She borrows procedures and themes from literature, philosophy and music to reveal the various forces present in the dancing body. She created and performed solo pieces To Paint is to Love Again (2016) and Zäsur (2021).

Thomas Vantuycom is a Belgian choreographer and dancer. After obtaining a bachelor’s degree in business engineering at the university of Leuven, he changed course to pursue a career in dance. He now shows his first choreography together with Elisabeth Borgermans.
