ON POINT

Two men, one balance.

Two men on the edge. They try to keep their balance between, above, below, on, against each other. Falling is not an option. What starts as a game develops into a common challenge. Every step, touch, shift must be precise. ON POINT.

They become completely dependent on each other, but the question is: who will persist?  And for how long? ON POINT is a wordless, site-specific circus- and dance performance full of humor.

Quotes

Movement exposed, Wendy Lubberding

The piece is a light dance between daring acrobatics and humorous use of the space via hand-to-hand interaction between the shorter Courtney and the taller Rhyner.

JURY BNG BANK DANCE PRIZE

Piet Van Dycke draws from both contemporary circus and dance in his work. This results in playful performances that stand out for their original use of space, objects and bodies. He tackles his themes through the interaction of movement and acrobatics, creating images that fold energetically in different ways.
