Choreographer Natalia Pieczuro and Colin H. Van Eeckhout (Amenra) meet in this post-metal dance performance.

 "Moments where we feel we live"

For this work, Natalia Pieczuro took as an inspiration “moments when we feel we are alive” and “different extremes”. The starting point of the work was her own experiences, as well as “stories” of others. Of people who are not afraid of being alive.

The choice of working with Colin, who strongly represents the Belgian post-metal scene, was inspired by the conviction and feeling that this kind of music speaks for the intensity of certain experiences, that are often hard to describe with mere words.

From Brussels, her home port, the choreographer has created an open landscape for this piece of archetypes. ‘This Kind of Bird Flies Backwards’ speaks of the intensity of feeling extreme sadness or loneliness.

The sound created by Colin H. van Eeckhout (Amenra, CHVE), Bjørn Lescouhier (Regression) and Mathieu Vandekerckhove (Amenra, Syndrome), offers an accompaniment that vibrates to the core. A pure, raw and sincere show.
