With Moving Sounds internationally-renown dancer Ruben Chi creates his first performance as a dance maker at production house De Nieuwe Oost. Four urban dancers unite their dance & music skills in this energetic performance.
In Moving Sounds four dancers/musicians mix their backgrounds, styles and rhythms. They travel through different genres, memories and feelings. What are life’s various rhythms and how do they sound when they melt together? What happens when we adjust to the rhythm of the others and when do we choose our own way? In this dynamic performance the dancers create the music that determines the rhythm of their movements, through which they discover the rhythms of life.
The premiere of Moving Sounds would have taken place at Thursday 26 March. Due to measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus this production is cancelled.
