Pursue – 2019

Pursue – Jort Faber Productions

Description
Pursue is a dynamic narrative focused on the intense environment of dating culture. Beginning off the culture of speed dating in Amsterdam and developing in the process of Jort and his four performers, Pursue takes the tediousness, excitement, boredom and thrill of meeting someone new on stage. Dating necessitates communicating yourself to another in a small amounts of time, manifesting in intense relationships between one another that often drop away. This temporary intensity structures the work and relationships that develop between the dancers, giving space for audience and performers alike to ask themselves how do you present yourself to someone new? How do you perform your identity to someone you want to get to know better? What becomes most important to communicate? Through humor and narrative familiarity, Jort celebrates the certain uncertainty of attraction and desire.
