Imagine a place where your senses are challenged. Imagine rhythms that affect your sight. Light that allows you to see the dark. A room in which the dimensions of the space seem elastic. Imagine that the pressure of the sound transforms a body into vibration. With Grind, choreographer Jefta van Dinther has created a performance that sets all your senses jangling. The cutting lights by lighting designer Minna Tiikkainen and the dark, overwhelming soundscape by sound man David Kiers make this an extraordinarily physical experience. Since its première, Grind has been on tour throughout Europe and is now being revived in Frascati by popular demand.
‘Grind is a strange, raw experience for the eye, ear and body. The intellect is blow away and the material takes over.’ – Svenska Dagbladet
Swedish-Dutch choreographer and dancer Jefta van Dinther has previously created The Way Things Go, Kneeding and The Blanket Dance for Frascati, all of which went on to make extremely successful international tours.
