Three dancers move incessantly in an ongoing development, alternating between exuberance and serenity. In While We Strive, Arno Schuitemaker revolves the relationship of movement with sound and redefines feelings of space, creating an interchangeability of visual and aural perception, listening with the eyes, hearing the movements in a visual way.
For While We Strive Arno Schuitemaker found inspiration in neuroscience and contemporary philosophy. In close collaboration with composer Massimo Cervini and lighting designer Ellen Knops he created a powerful blend of movement, sound and light that evokes a stream of images and thoughts to the viewer. Together with an invigorating sense for rhythm, While We Strive conceives a seductive trip for the senses that embodies a different view of the here-and-now.
