Leaving Normal

Informations Français au bas

After extensive movement research on theme of ‘encounters’, Leaving Normal developed into a site-specific dance performance, suited for all kinds of sites. It’s a story coloured by absurd interactions and intriguing characters. A performance on the border between theatre and dance, between humour and tragedy.

Equipped with a music box in your hands, Woest takes you on a journey from an apparently normal situation all the way to an absurd one. You’ll change from spectator to witness to accomplice. Be careful not to get yourself in trouble!

“Leaving Normal. Hilarious, tragically dance theater, which is finger licking good”. Michaela de Groot - reporter of Tweetakt Festival (NL)

"The greatness, brutality, absurdity and quality which Woest plays their shows, is very well present in their newest piece 'Leaving Normal'. The performers dance and move not only good, but also their acting skills are high quality. The performance is for a small audience, yes, but it makes it even more special.Anjo De Bont – Deventer op Stelten (NL)
