On stage, the band Dendermonde whip up a long, repetitive, evolving groove reminiscent of classic krautrock from Can or Neu!, crossed with The Chemical Brothers’ high voltage beats. At the same time, seven performers embody the groove and spur each other on to share the energy of the music. The wild party atmosphere they generate has been described as ‘definitely a horny performance’.
Voetvolk was founded in 2007 by choreographer Lisbeth Gruwez and musician/composer Maarten van Cauwenberghe. They have created more than 10 performance pieces including The Sea Within at Dansens hus, Oslo, in 2018.
