Lover's Eyes (2019)

 

“Non-duality is actually a translation of the Sanskrit word ‘Advaita’, which simply means ‘not two’ and points to the essential oneness (wholeness, completeness, unity) of life, a wholeness which exists here and now, prior to any apparent separation. It’s a word that points to an intimacy, a love beyond words, right at the heart of present moment experience. It’s a word that points us back Home. And despite the compelling appearance of separation and diversity there is only one universal essence, one reality.

Oneness is all there is – and we are included.”

Jeff Foster
Non-duality happens to be one of the fuels that brings us to Lover's Eyes.


Porto-based Brazilian choreographer Renan Martins collaborates for the second time with Antwerp Royal Conservatory. In his first work for such big group of dancers, he engages in different discussions on non-duality, individual and collective, and today's constant need to stand out when repetition seems to be the norm.
