Expected! // Movement Expo Aceleratio by Movementalist in the NDSM Fuse!

If it is possible to receive an audience again in mid-May, dance & theater collective Movementalist will present the Movement Expo Aceleratio in the NDSM Fuse in collaboration with Plein Theater from May 21 (premiere) to May 30!


The art of slowing down in times of pandemic.

Aceleratio is an interdisciplinary performance installation that aims to confront the online and offline audience with conflict, freedom, courage and consolation, arose from the need to embody this era. Artistic leaders Dayna Martinez Morales & Vincent Verburg are the initiators of Aceleratio Movement Expo.

Ten experienced and very different performers from dance / theater / music / visual art / and spoken word engage in a physical and mental process to understand on a deeper level how feelings and thoughts manifest themselves in our body during COVID-19. Inspired by the effects of the pandemic: Acceleration of thoughts, emotions that seem more extreme and the art of slowing down.

From different perceptions, the audience becomes a live & online part of intimate performances, each in its own poetic space. For one a search for freedom or connection, for another a confrontation with oneself or an ultimate surrender.

Performers: Andreas Denk (dance), Cherif Zaouali (physical theater), Dayna Martinez Morales (initiator / performance / dance), Isaac Espinoza Hidrobo (music / dance), Kathrin Gramelsberger (dance), Lieuwe van Gogh (visual art), Roberto Callisaya (music), Sjaan Flikweert (spoken word), Vincent Verburg (initiator / performance / dance), Pablo Alanes (Audio Visuals & Soundscape)
