Date of the opening: October 16, 2010
Man: Driven, intelligent and determined. True to himself, he is absorbed by his thoughts. His self-imposed solitude becomes loneliness.
Woman: his counterpoint. Observant, analytical and contemplative. On the one hand understanding and admiration for his world, on the other incomprehension and a desire to connect. Bodies without contact. Bodies in desperation.
I SOLO MENT is an interwoven double solo. A distant, yet loving sketch.
I SOLO MENT was nominated for a Zwaan (Swan) by the VSCD (Dutch Association of Theater and Concert Hall Directors) as one of ‘the most impressive dance production of the 2008/2009 season’ and was selected for the Nederlandse Dansdagen (Dutch Dance Days) as one of the most important productions.
