Grip is a personal story about two people who loose each other for a while. Time stands still. They keep going back to that moment of saying goodbye. Thoughts are dominated with memories, with restless dreams. What was once love, is slowly turning into an obsession.

The Turkish-Dutch Rutkay Özpinar received his training at Codarts, the Rotterdam dance academy. After his graduation in 2012, he started with De Dutch Junior Dance Division. Here he also created works for Solo’s @ The Sea and De Dutch Summer Dance Course 2014. He is currently active as a dancer at Introdans a.o. and as a choreographer with Korzo. In the Fall of 2014, Özpinar made his debut as a choreographer at Korzo in Here we live and now.
