Day of the dance
DAN MUSSETT & LAURENT DELOM dddddddddduettttttttttttttttttttttttt
In their very first performance together, dancers Dan Mussett and Laurent Delom go in search of the perfect symbiosis. What happens when two individuals give up their individuality for a unity that transcends them? In a playful exploration of what it means to become a person’s teacher, shadow, friend, rival, mirror, brother or colleague, all boundaries are slowly fading away.
Dan Mussett (UK, 1988) studied dance at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp, having previously studied English Literature at the University of Edinburgh. He is currently performing in the work of Jan Martens and Ayelen Parolin and is in the process of establishing MURMUR, a discussion group for dancers and performing artists in Antwerp.
Laurent Delom (FR, 1989) studied dance at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp, having previously studied Engineering at Supélec in Paris. He is currently performing in the work of Loïc Perela and Karel Tuytschaever, and is in the process of establishing DELOMBRE, a structure supporting his artistic practice in parallel to dance.
