Preview THE LOST ART OF GRIEF at The Korzo, Den Haag and on tour

From 10th January.

A tiny project about big emotions

In this intimate dance performance you are going to travel through the world of two women. Through their grief they try to find and support each other. Together they look for a ritual, a dance, a ceremony of the heart to provide a form in which to express their grief. A raw and fiery physical presence alternates with fragile intimacy. The audience is witness to and a part of these paradoxical big emotions which in the end are transformed into one communal heartbeat.

In her sixth choreography – The Lost Art of Grief – Marie Goeminne examines her fascination for sorrow and the human experience of grief. Looking for the beauty and diversity of this intense feeling she attempts to create an awareness about the connecting and liberating power which this emotion can lead to. In this Marie was inspired by the work of the psychotherapist and soul-activist Francis Weller. In his work Weller encourages us to embrace the art of grief as he calls it.
