In the dance theater performance Blueberries leave bruises on the skin, three characters arrive at a place where they must rediscover themselves and others. In a colorful collection of attempts, they try to cope with the roles that are expected of them. The question that becomes increasingly pressing is this: how much of yourself do you give up in order to meet those expectations? Blueberries leave bruises on the skin is a parade of possible answers to the question of how constructible you are, a celebration of human insecurity and hubris, an ode to searching.
Blueberries leave bruises on the skin is a trilingual (Dutch, English, French) dance theater performance for everyone aged 16 and up. We offer schools that want to come and watch the show an educational package that they can use in class in the period before the performance.
