Loïc Perela


Voice is an invitation to listen to a soundscape created by dancers, who simultaneously also disrupt it with their bodies and voices over and over again. This gives rise to a sensual dance experience emerging between darkness and light, between hearing and seeing; with voices and bodies and noises guiding the awareness of both spectators and dancers: what do you hear, when you watch the dance? The dancers are set into an irresistible rhythm of motion by their own voices – a rhythm, which takes hold of everything and opens the space to the experience of shared sensations.

Loïc Perela

studied dance in Marseille and Paris and then danced with the Saarländische Staatstheater as well as the Scapino Ballet Rotterdam. In his pieces, Loïc explores in different ways how the theatre can be a place in which we can all equally exist. He began working as a choreographer in 2012, mainly in Rotterdam, and in 2015 was awarded the Nederlandse Dansdagen prize in Maastricht.

During his K3-residency, Loïc will deal with concepts of solidarity, community and affinity and explore how these can be put into practice in the 21st century. The body and its movements are thereby not only restricted to the physical plane, but also extend to the voice, in order to transform the theatre space into a place of shared involvement.

VOICE is a production by Colab. Loïc Perela, in co-production with K3 | Tanzplan Hamburg and Dansateliers Rotterdam. Funded by: Fonds Podiumkunsten, Gemeente Rotterdam, Het Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds.
