“Space is what you can pass in a given time, while Time is what you need to pass"

Z. Bauman

PANORAMA begins where fairy-tales end, ‘…and they lived happily ever after…’ But how do people manage to stay together for years? Choreographer Giulio D’Anna places a couple in the centre: Kristin de Groot and Piet Rogie, well known Dutch dance artists and life partners for 25 years.

Their duet revolves around the passion and the struggle, the fun, the doubts and the desires of people who have shared their lives for a long time: an emotional language of moving bodies inspired by AcroYoga, ballroom and modern dance. Their lines create a landscape of memories and dialogues. Their bodies balance, intertwine, collide and balance again in front of a cinematographic projection that enlarges and shuffle images, facts and numbers that belong to their story.

Human relations have always been the subject of Giulio D’Anna's works. Previously he created Parkin’Son (2012-Dioraphte Prize), a very intimate duet with his father, and the postmodern dance-musical O O O O O O O O (2013- nomination Swan) in which eight young dancers share their personal stories of broken relationships and damaged intimacy.

PANORAMA is a double project: a dance performance about long-term relationships and, in the theatre foyer, a photo exhibition about couples in the Netherlands.
