Second Chance

Assi Weitz / Javier Murugarren

Music dance performance of the third kind

Let op! Tickets zijn te koop via de website van Fringe Festival.

Second Chance is een concertvoorstelling gebaseerd op ritmische grooves, vreemde bewegingen en scherpe teksten. Een pretentie van rap en heterodoxe flamenco, een stroom van vrije verzen en dissidente bewegingen begeleid door een stuiptrekking van beats.

SC is de band die het nooit heeft gehaald, de droom die nooit is vervuld. Het werkt vanuit de basis van mislukking, manoeuvrerende scènes waarin absurditeit en satire overlevingsmechanismen zijn. SC test de grenzen af tussen concert en interactie, scene en taal, directe uitvoering en vooropgezette uitwerking Opnieuw falen; maar om beter te falen

Duur: 45 min.

Second Chance is a concert performance based on rhythmic grooves, strange movements and sharp texts. A pretense of rap and heterodox flamenco, a flow of free verse and dissident movement accompanied by a convulsion of beats. SC is the band that never made it, the dream that was never fulfilled. It works from the very basis of failure, manoeuvring scenes where absurdity and satire are survival mechanisms. SC tests the boundaries between concert and interaction, scene and language, direct execution and premeditated elaboration To fail again; but to fail better
