Grachtenfestival – RUW

A music and dance performance, where nothing is compulsory and everything is allowed. Improvised music passes into recently composed music.

Singer Rianne Wilbers, multi-instrumentalist Jornt Duyx and dancer Sil Dekkers find each other in pushing boundaries and discover the splendour in the impetuous.

Everyone knows it. The emotional moments and outbursts that just bubble up. This rough side causes a lot of friction in your life. Then you ask yourself: “What should I do with this? Some people push these feelings away and others explode.

Either way, there is a taboo on showing strong emotions and according to many, it is ‘ugly’. Through word, song, newly composed music, improvisation, choreographed movement and free expression, we give you a glimpse into the hidden beauty of the rough sides of man.
