Filip Van Roe Extant dressed R 2023 DSC5540

Extant is a choregraphic investigation into what is/isn't acceptable on a stage and why? A striking feature of Jermaine Maurice Spivey's new creation is his collaboration with costume designer and former dancer Marquet K. Lee. He dresses our dancers in costumes made of (recycled) denim, immediately raising all kinds of questions. Why do we actually see this material so rarely on a stage? And what does it mean when we do?
