every_body (working title)

In 2024, Alexander Vantournhout and artistic partner, Emmi Väisänen, will collaborate on every_body. This duet is dedicated to deconstructing and reimagining everyday gestures like handshakes, walking, and balancing, transforming them into intricate sequences of movement, in a moving way. Conceived as a triptych, every_body is organized into distinct but interrelated chapters, each exploring unique aspects of bodily movement.

every_body will primarily be developed by Alexander Vantournhout and Emmi Väisänen, who will also perform the show. However, a second cast — consisting of Charlotte Cétaire and Chia-Hung Chung — will be involved in both the creation and performance of the show. They will join the tour immediately, not as understudies, but as a fully-fledged second cast.

Coproduction: Plateforme 2 Pôles Cirque en Normandie / La Brèche à Cherbourg & le Cirque-Théâtre d’Elbeuf (FR), VIERNULVIER, Gent (BE) and others tbc.
