“Rhythm is everything in boxing. Every move you make starts with your heart, and that’s in rhythm or you’re in trouble.” – Sugar Ray Robinson

Koen Augustijnen and Rosalba Torres Guerrero are heavyweights in both the Flemish and international dance world. In 2016 they came to Vooruit with the captivating, internationally-acclaimed performance Badke. Augustijnen earned his stripes with Alain Platel and Les Ballets C de la B, while Torres Guerrero has danced under the guidance of Alain Platel and Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker.

The duo has been part of the Flemish and international dance landscape for more than 20 years. Since recently they have been working together under the new artistic calling name Siamese Cie, supporting each other’s creations and developing new projects that they may or may not co-direct together.

Stadsschouwburg Utrecht is co-producer of Festival Tweetakt.
