Nederlandse Dansdagen 2022

Do the Blind Spot-tour, created in collaboration with Bureau Europa

31 August 2022

In recent years Nederlandse Dansdagen has developed into a festival for dance. Boundaries fade between disciplines and genres, between choreographer and dancer, between performer and audience, between stage and public space, and between countries. Bureau Europa has helped choreographer Jelena Kostic to create the Blind Spots-tour through the Maastricht Sphinxkwartier.

In a world where we are surrounded by stimuli, we often close off our senses. In Blind Spot: Maastricht choreographer Jelena Kostić makes visible and tangible what is right in front of us. In a theatrical walk full of contrasts, the urban environment and dance come together to open our eyes to new perspectives.  

With headphones on, the audience takes a walk through the raw Sphinx Quarter, ending on the Misericordeplein in the Statenkwartier. In various choreographies, Jelena plays with our ideas and expectations of space and our surroundings.

Before the walk you will receive a free cup of coffee in the Blanche Dael Branderij (30 minutes before the start time of the walk).

After the success of Blind Spot: Tilburg in the summer of 2021, choreographer Jelena Kostić creates an entirely new experience for Maastricht, especially for Nederlandse Dansdagen. With a dance language strongly influenced by freerunning and the raw industrial environment of the Sphinx Quarter, Jelena shows the city from a new perspective.  

On 1 and 2 October you'll have multiple opportunities to join the walk. Buy your tickets on the Nederlandse Dansdagen website.
