The endless journey in search of connection begins by taking the first step
Are our worlds really so different, or do we have more in common than we thought? That question is central to the autobiographical performance REMLA. Propelled by music from the Amsterdam Andalusian Orchestra, dancers Redouan Ait Chitt and Denden Karadeniz - well known in the world of hip hop & breaking - go in search of connection. That search starts with taking the first step, with their roots as the starting point. They are coached artistically by Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten.
