Man: Driven, intelligent and determined. True to himself, he is absorbed by his thoughts. His self-imposed solitude becomes loneliness.
Woman: his counterpoint. Observant, analytical and contemplative. On the one hand understanding and admiration for his world, on the other incomprehension and a desire to connect. Bodies without contact. Bodies in desperation.

I SOLO MENT is an interwoven double solo. A distant, yet loving sketch. Inspiration for the music, composed by Arne Van Dongen, is Nick Cave: the man, his music, his universe. The medium photography, specifically the photographs of Tom Van den Broek, were a source of inspiration for videographer Bernie van Velzen as well as set designer Niek Kortekaas.

is performed by Dario Tortorelli and Cecilia Moisio.

I SOLO MENT was nominated for a Zwaan (Swan) by the VSCD (Dutch Association of Theatre and Concert Hall Directors) as one of 'the most impressive dance production' of the 2008/2009 season and was selected for the Nederlandse Dansdagen (Dutch Dance Days) as one of the most important productions.

"Enervating performance about the need to connect (...) To start a performance with death is asking for trouble. Try topping that gripping scene. But Van den Broek manages to build the tension to a climax: an even colder ending." (de Volkskrant)
