Ductus Midi will have its Dutch premiere on Tuesday November 19.
Ductus Midi reintroduces the medieval ductus principle. Instead of following a pre-determinded route (leading from A to B), this way of thinking, reading and moving arises from the course and experience of the journey itself.
The length of the journey is never the same and has different rhythms. You cross the paths of two travelers. An encounter takes place. See where you go without anticipating a final destination. You follow a winding route over unstable, rocky ground. Sometimes a skill may be the consequence of adapting to the changing environment, like expertly stamping in puddles or dancing with thunder.
In a hazy terrain with blurred borders, we embark on a trip without a plan.
