Within Without II

In Within Without II, artist Nick Verstand examines our subconscious by light art, music and modern dance. The performance symbolizes the transformation of the self through different stadia. Let yourself be transported into a dream world of light and darkness, sound and space.


“People will do anything, no matter how absurd, in order to avoid facing their own souls. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.” ― Carl Gustav Jung


Verstand joins forces with Sedrig Verwoert (choreographer & dancer), Wanderwelle (music), Wes Broersen (interaction designer), Marijn Cinjee (music & sound design), Jasmine Karimova and Pitou (vocals). Together with Reina Trifunović, Alanna Archibald, Comfort Kondehson, Winter Wieringa and Adam Russel-Jones, Verwoert will provide the performance with dance - a three dimensional pas de deux included.

On the 19th of October, the new performance Within Without II is to be seen exclusively in Carré as the opening event of ADE, as part of the Arts & Culture program. The first edition of the audiovisual liveshow in 2021 was visited by thousands of people.
