Amos Ben-Tal/OFFprojects cw Gosse de Kort




Dance and architecture meet in this new production by Dutch dance collective OFFprojects. In Interval, the intricate movement language of choreographer Amos Ben-Tal and the phenomenal dancers of OFFprojects interact with a fascinating kinetic installation by interdisciplinary artist Gosse de Kort. 

In this hypnotic performance, the dancers must navigate their relationships and intuitions in an ever-shifting architectural landscape. Does the space influence the dancers, do the dancers influence the space, when is it symbiosis and when confrontation?

How do we find the balance between personal freedom of movement and empathy for the other in a shared space? 




OFFprojects is a collective of former dancers of NDT and Batsheva Ensemble, gathered around the work of choreographer and musician Amos Ben-Tal. The company is known for its out of the box approach to dance and exceptional performing skills. 

Amos Ben-Tal seamlessly merges dance with other disciplines such as music, text and image. After a career as a dancer at NDT and having made several successful pieces under the wing of Korzo Productions Amos founded OFFprojects in 2012. The collective has created several successful productions among which 60 that opened the Sommer Akademie in 2019.

Gosse de Kort is a Dutch interdisciplinary artist whose work is situated at the intersection between visual arts, technology and architecture. His pieces have been shown at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, Netherlands Architecture Institute Rotterdam, Centre Pompidou Brussels and Cadance Festival, among others.
