Koen De Preter & Ulrika Kinn Svensson

Sometimes it’s there is an intimate performance created by two young choreographers and friends, born out of a need to join their creative forces. This atmospheric piece is a search for subtle shifts of meaning in movement, words, sound, and light. The performers play with emotions and humour, both introvert and extrovert, to create a hypnotic and warm-hearted dance performance.

‘Time stands still. Music is playing softly in the background. They speak.’

Welcome to this home, away from home home.
From here on you know what it means.
Sometimes we don’t feel it at all but it’s there,
Waiting for the green light to come.
We can say it again: it’s there.
