Becoming by Iván Pérez, made its stage debut in 2017 as a trio, and was further developed with Dance Forum Taipei in 2018. It is a movement examination of the notion of constant change featuring live music by composer Rutger Zuydervelt. The piece continues to evolve itself and will be made new by the dancers of Dance Theatre Heidelberg (DTH).
What emerges is a universe of continuous motion, characterized by a fascinating interplay of forces and dynamics. The inverting directions and impulses of movement are negotiated by the dancers as a collective body. They follow a common objective throughout, yet at times they threaten to tear themselves apart. The group constantly pushes for new ideas and must implement them by all means. Where this restless inner force comes from and where exactly it will lead remains a mystery. The spectator is invited to witness the processes of physically transferring information towards functionality and unity. This intimate and meditative production encourages us to reflect on who we are in relation to others and what we become together.
