Choreography by Thierry Smits
A provocative merging of traditional and contemporary modern dance, Belgian choreographer Thierry Smits' To the Ones I Love celebrates the male physique's beauty, power, and capacity for expression. It also pays homage to movement at its purest, unencumbered by narrative and infused with artfully woven elements of hip-hop, martial arts, African dance, and ballet. Set to a score by Bach and an electronic soundscape by Maxime Bodson, this work features nine men acutely in tune with one another as they move across an austere white set that amplifies their athletic movements-a mix of zen-like concentration and unbridled joy.
