Once a year Roots Compagnie is organizing a dance carousel in which we present a selection of smaller dance pieces connected by a common theme. For this Festival We'll present a selection of own work and a selection of other international young artists. This Festival is a platform for inspiration, networking and sharing.
'Karuna', Sanskrit for 'mourning', is a contemporary dance performance in which the dancers of Roots Compagnie, guest performers and vulnerable young people share their relationship with the theme of 'mourning'. We all know the idea, somehow we've all been confronted with it, but how do we deal with it? What does the loss of a loved one, a beloved situation, an important place, a key object or core idea entail? What does all this mean for us and where does it take us?
Every year, Roots Compagnie organizes an international dance festival.
It is our goal to show dance in its versatility and totality. With this festival we want to reach out to the world with our work and our vision on dance. This year, the central theme will be ‘mourning’, wherein Roots Compagnie will present the newest creation ‘Dearest’. Next to that, Roots Compagnie is also entering into a number of collaborations with youth organizations. These projects give some young people the opportunity to dive into a creative process around this annual theme and present it there in a professional context.
