Siri Loves Me

“There are eyes everywhere. No blind spot left. What shall we dream of when everything becomes visible? We'll dream of being blind.”

Blindly we walk through our GoogleMaps-world and believe that Siri tells us the truth. Citycentres are filled with securitycams that check if we move in the right direction. Everything that we cannot decipher is non-existing. Science, technology and measurability are the new truth. Maybe the new religion.

In Siri Loves Me choreographer Katja Heitmann imagines the way technology influences our world. Will the future generations - in these times of Siri, googlemaps and securitycams - still be able to choose their own path? Can they still move freely?

Fifty youngsters execute a ritual in the most concentrated way possible. Together they walk a cathastrophical line and become an island of serenity in the epicentre of the cityrumble.

Siri Loves Me is performed by students of the Pre-education Dance Dans Maastricht, Fontys Dance Academy and Tanzhaus NRW. 

Reviews:
Wendy Lubberding- Theaterkrant ****
"(...) their serene silence in gaze and movement draws your attention. (...) Their rhythm  deviates from that of the shopping-street. But moving as a group they change the tempo of the world around them."

Lieneke Mous- Dans Magazine
"(...) It is a breathtaking piece of indigo-children that everybody just hás to experience."
