Tetris – Created by Arch8

Innovative and family-friendly dance work inspired by the video game

Experience Arch8’s physically awe-inspiring work, Tetris, featuring a gravity-defying combination of acrobatics, extreme physicality and movement. Tetris, inspired by the addictive puzzle game and the twists and turns of a Rubik’s Cube, has performers fitting, merging, stacking and combining in various feats. The show is about fitting into a group, but also staying true to yourself. It is for the kids who can’t sit still, for the ones who like to climb the walls and for those who can imagine further than they can see.

Arch8 isn’t an everyday dance company. They view theatrical traditions as a resource, using them to create new forms. Then, they share these new forms in public space, architectural space and theatrical space. There is a high degree of interactivity in the work, as they encourage active viewing and a participatory imagining on the part of the public. With its innovative approach, the company has performed around the globe, including St. Petersburg, Istanbul, Cairo, New York, San Francisco, Vancouver, Senegal and throughout Europe. The company has also made collaborative performances with local artists in Benin, Senegal, Alexandria, Cairo, Frankfurt, Dusseldorf, Utrecht, the Hague, Maastricht and Hasselt.
