Julidans - After After - Arno Schuitemaker

In the world premiere 'After After', choreographer Arno Schuitemaker is inspired by a question from the young Italian philosopher Federico Campagna: 'How can we help the creation of new worlds out of the ruins of our own?' With seven dancers he starts from a white canvas and from there takes a thrilling dive into the unknown.

Search for new worlds

In the background plays the idea that Campagna describes in his work: how each of the civilizations we know so far – the Egyptian, the Greek, the Roman and so on – has always reached a climax, only to fall apart. In Campagna's view, the world has reached the end point of neoliberal or capitalist society: there is no way out. In After After, Arno Schuitemaker does not focus on showing the ruins but undertakes a search for how we can create new worlds.

World premiere

With After After, which will have its world premiere at Julidans, Schuitemaker advocates the 'attempt'. 'It is vital that we keep trying. How could those new worlds appear? What could we draw on a blank sheet?' His dancers form a diverse cast, bursting with energy and dynamism, in which everyone's individual strength comes first. The stage is their performance space, their body is the instrument, their versatility is the key. A radically transforming decor forms the surprising staging.

Progressive maker

Schuitemaker is seen as one of the most progressive makers of the moment. His work is praised for its hypnotic power and for the inventive forms he creates, which are as intimate as they are universal. With successful performances such as The Way You Sound Tonight (awarded the Zwaan in 2019 for most impressive dance production) and 30 Appearances Out of Darkness (2022), he breaks through the boundaries between dance, performance, visual arts and club culture. He is again working with renowned lighting designer Jean Kalman and composer Aart Strootman, who composes layered electronic music especially for After After.

Please note: the end time is an indication.
