The performer slung between body and mind. Chaotic and explosive motions while his body is carried in high tempo by energy, sound and instinct. Four excentric characters in a vortex of death, love and violence. Heutiger Tag ist sehr, ganz spezieller Tag. T.r.a.s.h. zooms in... a close-up.

With this short performance on a small and sober stage for four dancers and a cello player T.r.a.s.h. looks back on the trilogy of the performances Janusz ist zweiseitig am Kopf (2004), Pork-in-Loop (2005) and To File For Chapter 11' (2006). A 25 minute trailer going between silence and violende they made a disturbing inventory. An introduction to T.r.a.s.h.

The young dutch dance theatre company T.r.a.s.h. evolved in 2001 from the Tilburg underground rock scene. It produces uncompromising dynamic performances that have been characterized as poetic and contemporary. The artistic core is formed by Kristel van Issum (concept and choreography), Arthur van der Kuip (musical composition) and Paul van Weert (settings). Typical for the performances is an intense mix of live music, raw and energetic motional vocabulary and stage design. The T.r.a.s.h. repertoire is best to be compared to Jackson Pollock's action painting. Dancers, bold and impertinent, draw a maze of duets, solo's and group choreograpies on the dance floor to dazzle the spectator with clear and bright colours and wild composition. No math but physics in it's most explosive form...
The name T.r.a.s.h. refers to the disposal culture, the worthless, to whatever can heedlessly be thrown aside. It is translated into a deconstruction and recycling of T.r.a.s.h.'s own material. In the performances, in which dissonance has a major part, afterimages of previous productions are frequently featured.

The performance is also part of the programme of the 2nd edition of Olandiamo?, festival of Dutch arts and creativity, organized by the Dutch University Institute for Art History in Florence (NIKI) and the Cultural Office of the Netherlands Embassy in Rome, on the occasion of the 50 years of the activity of the Institute.
