Looking Back

is a duet based on a written text to which it is also, sometimes, performed. Referencing the myth of Orfeo and Eurydice, this performance translates the timeless struggle between hope and hopelessness within a doomed love relationship. Longing, melancholy, and miscommunication are explored in movement and, depending on the location or setting, also in (live) music, text, film or other media.



Created by House of Makers

For this project House of Makers has collaborated in different settings and formats with film maker Bowie Verschuuren, visual artist Marie Vollenhoven and dancers Matthew Pawlicki-Sinclair & Clotilde Tran.
