Alma Söderberg & Cullberg

The Listeners

Belgian premiere
Duration: 1h



In The Listener suit 2020, the Swedish choreographer continues her research with nine dancers from the famous Cullberg ensemble. Again, rhythm, voice and movement underpin a multi-layered performance. In it, your own perceptions are especially central. In polyrhythmic music, you choose which layers of rhythm to focus on. Between sound and movement, dance and music, the viewer/listener discovers surprising freedom.

Double bill with the performance Noche at 21:00.

Swedish Alma Soderberg lives and works in Brussels and has shown her creations at the most important European stages and festivals. In 2016 she was awarded the Birgit Cullberg Grant in her native country, named after the founder of the company. After mostly solos and creations for small groups, The Listeners is her first collaboration with Cullberg. Op NEXT presenteren ze ook hun nieuwe co-creatie: Noche.
