Quite Discontinuous

After the successful national and international tour in 2013, Quite Discontinuous is back in theatres in The Netherlands in the fall of 2018.

After the successful national and international tour in 2013, Quite Discontinuous is back in theatres in The Netherlands in the fall of 2018. Four dancers, exciting partner work and detailed solo’s accompanied by an endless stream of trance-generating soundscapes. With this precise and painfully sharp choreography, Jasper van Luijk captures is fascination for lifelessness in a pas-de-trois of mourning.
How do we respond to the death of a loved one and how does a group redefine itself when a member is missing?

“It is impossible / says experience.” And yet again the only plaint sounds:
‘It is what it is / says love.’
This silent dance requiem is of an equal beauty. ‘
Loek Zonneveld, Theaterkrant 2013.

Quite Discontinuous – “a melancholic work about loss, exciting floor work and the physical pleasure of wanting to be a group of entangled bodies again” according to the press. Jasper van Luijk has a strong bond with ‘Quite’, he senses a great need to bring a broader audience into contact with this poetic tale about death.

Concept & choreography: Jasper van Luijk | Music: Lennart Siebers | Light & spatial design: Jasper van Luijk | Photography: Menno van der Meulen Production: SHIFFT in co-production with De Nieuwe Oost | Duration: 60 min.
