This is the end of the future.
Did the future ever exist?
Is it a bygone dream?
Is the future now?
What comes after the future?
Truus is dancing with Jens in a piece created by 4 generations of dance makers.
Four embodiments of dance that together tell a single story.
Generations with a different past and a different future.
The production forges links throughout time and space with the duet as sum, division, reflection and duplication.
Following the success of She Was a Visitor, the solo performance that met with great recognition in the 2013-2014 season, Truus Bronkhorst is presenting a new dance programme in the autumn of 2014. Once again, she is working in close cooperation with two choreographers, but this time also with a second dancer.
With Marc Vanrunxt and Kristel van Issum, Truus Bronkhorst is creating a new link in her long series of powerful, personally charged dance productions.
The new collaboration of Van Marc Vanrunxt, Kristel van Issum and Truus Bronkhorst with the young dancer Jens Van Noten provides a quadratic multiplication of the possibilities.
The work of Truus Bronkhorst always reflects her amazement and concern about the harshness of the world and always shows how she wants to reply to this with the gentle powers of art and beauty.
* Truus Bronkhorst (1951) dancer/choreographer with Stichting van de Toekomst, Amsterdam. For over thirty years, she has been creating striking and challenging dance productions; both solos and group pieces.
* Kristel van Issum (1972) choreographer with T.R.A.S.H, Tilburg. Her work is characterised by raw underground aesthetics, whereby the conventions of dance are confronted in a dynamic, passionate way with those of other social domains.

* Marc Vanrunxt (1960) choreographer with Kunst/Werk, Antwerp. He is known for his expressive, capriciously beautiful work, and is regarded as one of the stalwarts of the contemporary dance landscape.
