The Spanish choreographer Iván Pérez has lived and worked in the Netherlands for the last fifteen years, and after his career as a dancer with Nederlands Dans Theater went on to be a successful choreographer. He is now on the verge of an international breakthrough with his physical, and emotionally poignant style. In Becoming, Iván shows an ever-changing world, a world in motion. The dancers follow the flow or go in the opposite direction, constantly influenced by encounters and experiences. Hypnotic entanglements take you to infinite spaces that are intriguing and revealing. Accompanied by the electronic music of Rutger Zuyderveld, Becoming inspires to reflect on who you are, who you want to be, and you relation to others.
