»Imagine a place that defies your senses. Imagine rhythms that affect your vision. Imagine a room where the dimensions of the space appear resilient. Imagine the pressure of sound transforming a body into vibrations. Imagine light that makes you perceive darkness. GRIND offers this place – where the components of body, light and sound create binds that affect, confuse and move.«
Jefta van Dinther’s performance crushes the various forms of materiality and energies into a changed, transferred sensory substance, which enables us to smell the body in colours, sounds and shapes of our surroundings. It moves and metabolises into a landscape of our unexpected perception and with this creates a special form of bodily parallax. CoFestival has been trying to invite Jefta van Dinther’s performance Grind to the festival for a number of years and this year we finally succeeded. This is one of the most referential contemporary dance solos of the last years, and it truly should not be missed.
