Speels Collectief made three short films about intimacy and sexuality in the fall of 2021. In these intimate films, people meet each other in their search for mutual contact. In every film we see a performer with and a performer without a disability. A crossover between dance and theatre come together in the medium of film. The three movies are:
PERFECT FIT is a portrait of two very different women. Both desire intimacy. But what if you don’t coincide with anyone at all? What if no one fits exactly?
TURN OFF THE LIGHTS
Suppose you desire, fantasize, and really want, but your body doesn’t cooperate. Suppose every intimate moment could be abruptly interrupted by healthcare workers, by schedules, by everyday reality. In TURN OFF THE LIGHTS we look at dreams about lust, about pleasure, and about a body that can and is allowed to do anything.
TAKE CARE is an intimate encounter between mother and son. A dance film about becoming independent and remaining dependent, about wanting or having to take care of each other. About what it means to be connected and vulnerable.
The films are made by Simon van Iersel and David van Haeren and based on a choreography of Eva Boer (PERFECT FIT, TURN OFF THE LIGHTS) and Elena Foster and Sanne Arbouw (TAKE CARE).
In the autumn of 2021, three performances by Speels Collectief were filmed into three short films: PERFECT FIT, TURN OFF THE LIGHTS and TAKE CARE. These premiered on November 21st of 2021 in the Posttheater in Arnhem. The performances are made by Nieuwe Makers Eva Boer (PERFECT FIT, TURN OFF THE LIGHTS) and Elena Foster (TAKE CARE).
