Vloeistof - Hellend Vlak (Slippery Slope)

The sea level is rising. We are up to our necks in water. Four people try to survive on the roof of a flooded house...

In Hellend Vlak you find yourself in the middle of the dancers' difficult choice: the choice between helping each other or just saving your own skin. A dance performance that hovers between familiarity and absurdism. After all, we all have the boundless talent to put things into perspective. Are you already getting a bit warmer?
Arts Umbrella Dance Company

Sophisticated, dedicated and inspired. The Arts Umbrella Dance Company (AUDC) is a pre-professional repertory dance company based in Vancouver, Canada. The company rehearses and performs new, innovative works by leading North American and European choreographers. During Julidans at the park, two performances will be presented, Orbo Novo by choreographer Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui and the piece Smokey Sarah by choreographer Marco Goecke.



'It is not only quite absurd and wry what we get to see, but first and foremost it is terribly exciting. Every step can be a misstep, every wrong move may result in a drenching. This gives Hellend Vlak a tension you hardly ever experience. The better edge-of-your-seat work, comparable with the antics of an acrobat without a safety net.'
