There are times when I think I’m seeing, but I’m not

We often go through life with our senses closed off. With Blind Spot, choreographer Jelena Kostić invites you to look at the urban environment of Tilburg with fresh eyes.

When in 2020 people disappeared from the streets and life turned upside down, Jelena began to see her hometown Tilburg anew. What struck her was the multitude of striking architecture. The shapes, the play of lines, and the untold stories of the city and its buildings. All things we overlook in everyday life, but which can be made visible and tangible through dance.

During Blind Spot, visitors go on a walk through the city center with headphones on, starting
at Theater De Nieuwe Vorst and ending at the Kantongerecht. A voice leads the visitors along five different locations, where dancers enter into a dialogue with striking buildings. They embody the stories and emotions hidden behind the stones, exploring the relationship between people and structures.

Maximum number of participants: 25 per performance.
