Fascinated by the question of how far science can get to imitate human behaviour through artificial intelligence, choreographer Joeri Dubbe brings two entities together in one space. Who is more human: man or cyborg? With his favourite dancers Carolina Mancusco and Sarah Murphy, Joeri created a fascinating duet about the unstoppable advance of technology. Do you evolve with technology or do you return to nature? But if you choose the latter, does that mean that you stagnate in your development in an attempt to remain yourself? Kiraly promises to be an intriguing duel between nature and technological developments, between the evolution and devolution of man.

Designed to adapt and evolve,
always curious and interested, technology rules her behaviour.
Fuelled by a memory that she is programmed to have
she yearns to connect to the humanity she never had.

A character relives her own personal love events that lead to an unrecoverable separation. Time loops and as a consequence the character’s reality deviates to the parallel world of what she has hoped for. Their past history rules her present life, and the natural cycle of time stops.

The award-winning Joeri Dubbe has for years been furthering his career as a choreographer. Especially for Dansclick, Korzo asked him to create a new trio. In the breathtaking "Kitsune" a fox from Japanese mythology that can take on a human form – rituals are the point of departure. Three masked dancers pose in golden light and transform from animal to human and back. They ominously flow together, collide, and then separate again. Their movements are alienating, almost animal, yet they manage to reveal human vulnerabilities.
Enfant shows a journey of woman trying to find back her inner child.
Through out this journey she encounters the struggles of finding the balance between who she was and who she wants to be.
Is there a place in the world nowadays where we can welcome our child back into our lives. Or are we slaves to our grown up world where we are led by the hardships of life

Joeri is fascinated by the global developments and the effects they have on humanity and our lives. For Trigger-Happy he was inspired by the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. In this piece Joeri deals with the development of human emotions. Sorrow, love, tenderness and terrible jealousy. Sometimes we are overcome by our emotions but usually our mind dominates. How will this be in the future? Will human emotions still have a place in our society? Or will we be led by ratio?

With great attention to music, costumes, and lighting, choreographer Joeri Dubbe delves together with light designer Tom Visser into the relationship between man and technology. Are we slowly being poisoned by the technology that surrounds us? Are we slowly turning into robots, or does technology offer us opportunities to grow as human beings? Chrono creates a world where the difference between real and false is elusive. The characters fight themselves out of the illusion, reality becomes more and more visible.
Point-Cloud (Tom Visser & Joeri Dubbe)
The earth has evolved, from the Big Bang to where we are now. And humanity is also still developing. In Point Cloud, we see a man with knowledge and conviction. But he has doubts. In an attempt to find the truth, he allows himself to be swallowed up by his self-created world, his little universe, and he pulls us in as well. Joeri Dubbe toys with credibility in this installation and up-ends our perspective on life. The up and coming young choreographer Joeri received the Nederlandse Dansdagen Maastricht prize last year. As part of that prize, he created this latest production Point Cloud, an installation of dance, images, sound and compact extraordinary scenery.

In particular, Dubbe focuses on who wields power, the ruler who places himself at the center of life. It is a timeless way of thinking, but can we say the same for the ruler.
A journey of humanities from africa across the gods of ancient Egypt till the 16th century where sacrifices have to be made.
So immersed you became man
the insecure, the fearsome, the vulnerable
a dying element forgotten the essence within you
never knew how beautiful you are
never looked at yourself never looked who are
what you are
Knowing, technology, communication, distracted
and closed by themself blamed by word
expected the honest''
