Koen Augustijnen & Rosalba Torres Guerrero


Luxembourg audiences are very familiar with Koen Augustijnen and his collaborative works. Rosalba Torres Guerrero last appeared on the stage of the Grand Théâtre with her electrifying performance in Phèdre(s) with Isabelle Huppert. Now they join forces for their new project (B) .

For Augustijnen and Torres Guerrero, boxing in its sublime form becomes dancing and for (B) they want to research when and how this could happen by having the two universes and physical vocabularies dialogue, and by finding a way to transform and transcend the reality of boxing as an "arena" sport into the fiction of the stage. The boxer and the dancer resemble each other also in the way that they always perform in front of an audience; both perform in order to be seen, to be loved. Augustijnen and Torres Guerrero are fascinated by this contrast between the public persona and the human figure behind the facade. Four professional boxers join forces with six contemporary dancers to create this exploratory piece; contrasting control and instinct as well as exploring the public persona and its more hidden side.
