The Way You Sound Tonight

Premiere in France

Arno Schuitemaker shares in the theatre the energy of clubs and plunges the spectator into the depths of the ultimate sensorial experience. Just like the Christophe Béranger/Jonathan Pranlas-Descours duo, the Dutch choreographer is the laureate of the (re)connaissance competition, that is celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2019 and that looks to identify, give visibility and support choreographers that are not well-known.

More than a show, The Way You Sound Tonight is a sensorial experience for spectators, united with the dancers in a single space: the stage. Starting with a single movement on an infinite loop, Arno Schuitemaker’s choreography doesn’t have a beginning or an end, and Aart Strootman’s music envelops you with its muffled beats. The dancers’ torsos undulate in a fluid dynamic, getting faster and faster, in an explosive mix of gestures, lights and sounds creating a flow of images and sensations that encourage us to invert visual and audio perception. Bringing the bodies’ metamorphosis to burning point, troubling the vision with a hypnotic movement, Arno Shuitemaker creates a fascinating piece, where the dancers, like as many atoms, palpitate in a fleeting space-time. The Way You Sound Tonight can be experienced as a trance or as a meditation. It’s up to you. Agnès Izrine

The VSCD Awards (the Oscar of Dutch dance)
The Way You Sound Tonight received the award of most impressive dance production 2019.
The jury: "It is one of those theater experiences you want to last forever. The dance, the staging of performers and audience, the ongoing stream of music — it is a bulls eye. Schuitemaker's choice to create an 'acoustic ballroom' immerses the spectator in a seductive and almost ecstatic experience."
