‘And then, there’s the pearl’, wrote the NRC about the work of Stephen Shropshire during the last edition of the CaDance Festival. That is why we invited him to perform the intriguing duet We Are Nowhere Else But Here once more in Korzo, for those who missed it or would like to see it again. Stephen sought inspiration in the writings of art critic and activist Edward Said. He cites ‘coexistence’ as the greatest challenge of our time; meaning that different values can exist together without hierarchy. The true acceptance of one another without suppressing the differences that exist between each other. Shropshire translates this idea into the stimulating and poetic performance We Are Nowhere Else But Here in which he appeals to us to relate to one another beyond generalizations and first impressions.

We Are Nowhere Else But Here is a co-production by Stephen Shropshire and Korzo producties in collaboration with Posthof Theater Linz and Project Sally Maastricht
For years Stephen Shropshire has made furor internationally with his athletic and expressive dance language, along with his critical view of contemporary society.
‘Stephen Shropshire has outdone himself […] This is a real gem,. We are therefore very pleased to have the performance return for a reprise in The Hague.' (★★★★★ de Volkskrant, after the premiere of We Are Nowhere Else But Here during the CaDance Festival 2017)
