FORCES is dance piece that is inspired by the four universal forces that keep our world together: gravity, electro-magnetism, the weak nuclear force and the strong nuclear force.
Flemish choreographer ugo dehaes worked over a period of one year with many dancers during very short periods (mostly two weeks) to create scenes that translate physics into powerful physical scenes and amazing images.
Each show of FORCES is presented as a collection of short stories: all scenes are shown independently. The playlist varies from venue to venue, and is often chosen in collaboration with the programmer of the inviting theatre.
