“One of the leading dancers in the Netherlands,” (Dance Europe) former aeronautical engineer turned award-winning choreographer Arno Schuitemaker makes his U.S. debut with the U.S. premiere of If You Could See Me Now. This full-length work is magical and intense, exploring perception through a radical integration of hypnotic, perpetual movement with electronic music and light, stretching how one experiences space and time. “A magnificent work, tactfully playing with your emotions," (de Volkskrant) the highly physical If You Could See Me Now hints at themes of love, loneliness and waiting, while urging you to take another look.
