Mohamed Yusuf Boss + Lunatics & Poets
Club Guy & Roni asks dancemakers it feels a kinship with to make new work. This year’s double bill focuses on choreographer Mohamed Yusuf Boss and the duo Anna Jacobs and Hanna van der Meer.
“For me, it’s super important to expose young and talented choreographers to a wider audience, and also at the same time expose our audience to a new generation of makers. That is what Club Invites is about; celebrating new talent.” – Roni Haver
LABA – Mohamed Yusuf Boss
In ‘LABA’, dancer and choreographer Mohamed Yusuf Boss explores the concept of ‘being home’ through the fundamentals of Hiphop and other styles including the African Pantsula and Jaandheer. With the strong collective character of these different styles of dance, Yusuf Boss delves into the relationship between the individual and a country or home that doesn’t officially exist, like Somaliland. What does a relationship like that do to a person? What is there you identify with?
Postcards from a better place – Lunatics and Poets
Lunatics and Poets combines different disciplines to initiate a diverse dialogue. In Postcards from a better place Lunatics and Poets illuminates the dark side of human nature. From an infantile game to overt violence, it is the inner darkness that confronts us with irreversible acts, shame and guilt. This performance is a poetic portrait of the shadow side that at the same time makes us human.
