Three performers, one explosive energy | If You Could See Me Now (SPECIAL EDITION)

We Are Public’s In Art We Trust Fund, Het HEM and artist Arno Schuitemaker are joining forces for a new SPECIAL EDITION of If You Could See Me Now.

If You Could See Me Now feels like a hypnotic trip. Arno Schuitemaker’s intense performance is bound to reach new heights at this SPECIAL EDITION at a grand, industrial location. Three performers gradually transform a disarming club dance into a vertiginous wave motion. They push their bodies to the max as they are propelled forward by the rhythm of the beat.

Arno adapted his highly-praised dance performance especially for the In Art We Trust Fund, to be performed at Het Hem’s incredible space: a former cannon factory on the North Sea Canal.

Concept: Arno Schuitemaker, performers: Ivan Ugrin, Stein Fluijt, Mark Christoph Klee, dramaturgy: Guy Cools, light design: Vinny Jones, music composition: Wim Selles

Het HEM’s performance, restaurant and exhibition space are all wheelchair accessible. The evening will follow the current RIVM guidelines. Click here for directions.
