For Hands On Stage the unique and critically acclaimed virtual-reality experience HandsON has been adapted for the stage. Fascinated by the hand movements of today’s world leaders, choreographer David Middendorp created ‘hand choreographies’ that form the basis of this new performance.
In a swirling interaction of dancers and hands, a new surrealist world is created that surpasses the imagination. A magic comical world formed and sculpted by hands, that you can both watch and experience.
HandsON can be seen as a study of the underlying motivation of the people leading us, and forms a continuation on the performance ‘World Leaders’. More than in any other of his previous choreographies, with HandsON Middendorp goes in search of the deep layers that lie within humanity, taking non-verbal expressions as the mirrors of our subconscious. What do these expressions tell us about the state of mind of the people that govern us, and how do the people who are governed react to them?
