Voetvolk / Lisbeth Gruwez & Maarten Van Cauwenberghe (BE)


“With Nomadics, Voetvolk enters the realm of the (inner) landscape. Not a mythical place, but the world – here and now – as it unfolds to and with us. We walk; put one foot in front of the other. Together, we experience the multi-voiced impact of that simple movement. On foot, we make our way through nature and city, through wind and weather, to the place where at the end of the day it all happens: the scene. A breathtaking foot play for eight performers that frees the body – and therefore the mind – from the ground up.

But first, we invite the public to walk with us. During the creation of Nomadics, we undertake a trip to and from twenty-three cultural centres in Flanders. Together with the spectators who want to join us, we move to the particular location, aware of the space, the time, each other and the surroundings.”
