This evening, Summer Dance Forever serves up three phenomenal dance performances at DeLaMar Theatre. French company Allongé send their B-Boys into outer space; award-winning Dutch dancer/choreographer Dalton Jansen pays homage to Rastafari culture in his solo; Carmel Loanga celebrates youth, as her dancers tell their own personal stories. With this short but powerful moving testimony, Ruben Noël aka Rubix, narrates the story of a young man who has been struggling to confess his deeper thoughts to his therapist. Followed by a Q&A.

Allongé : 'Sous Sol'
NL Premiere
In ‘Sous-sol’, the first production by French company Allongé, the audience will be taken on a journey to explore other mineral worlds in the galaxy. Arnaud Deprez has created a Breaking ballet for six B-Boys moving like they are on a drilling mission on an exoplanet. Taking the physical gestures of Breaking to the next level, they slide and glide across the stage, digging and drilling tunnels in their quest for unique minerals and gems. Along the way, they descend deeper and deeper into the underground – the ‘sous-sol’ – tunnelling through layers of planetary crust. Until the dancers finally start transforming into the very material they were digging for.

Dalton Jansen: 'JAH!' (excerpt)
Award-winning Dutch choreographer/dancer Dalton Jansen is a Theatre Forever regular. In his choreographies he often combines disciplines such as spoken word, Hiphop, contemporary and Breaking. In 2021 he founded his own dance company, BLACK BIRDS, aiming to set up special programmes for new talent and young people in difficult social positions. Last year he won The Next! 2022 award for his upcoming piece ‘JAH!’, and tonight he will be previewing an excerpt from this. With ‘JAH!’, Dalton dives into the world of the Rastafari, unpacking its beauty and freeing himself from shame to fully embrace his own roots. Personal yet universal, Dalton delves deep into his own history and places this within the broader context of society. The full piece will premiere later this year.
JAH! is co-produced by Summer Dance Foreve

Carmel Loanga: 'l'ivresse des lucioles'
NL premiere
A native of Gabon, Carmel Loanga began her training in Popping, going on to become a Hiphop dancer and choreographer. With ‘L’ivresse des lucioles’ (‘The Drunkenness of the Fireflies’), she has created a piece that is an ode to youth. Because when we are young, we are real. We are transported along on the journey of five dancers in search of limitless experiences. They are all different, bound together only by a mysterious trust. Struggling between good and evil, they each seek their own identity, striving to be free. With each dancer bringing their personal story to the stage, the piece is put together like a film: performers are neither dancers nor actors, but become both simultaneously.

Rubix: ‘ADAPT (Another Day At Psy Therapy)’
In this short but powerful moving testimony, Ruben Noël aka Rubix, narrates the story of a young man who has been struggling to confess his deeper thoughts to his therapist. Until he finally finds the proper way to express what he has been repressing for so long. Through this piece, Rubix shows how dance can be a form of therapy in itself. We have so many words to express ourselves with, but sometimes only movement can transpose our true feelings.
