Jefta van Dinther

Berlin-based choreographer Jefta van Dinther breaks down our human drive to revive and the yearning to relive in a strippeddown choreography of body and voice. In this durational performance, ten dancers uncover the body’s boundless mental and physical resourcefulness.

The audience is summoned into the intensity of repetition and invited to linger in the sweetness of introspection. “Unearth” digs into the body as material, while exposing both social and spiritual constructs of kinship, purpose and mortality.
