TETRIS Mon Amour

Club Guy & Roni and Slagwerk Den Haag

The computer game Tetris conquered the world in 1984. Also choreographer Roni Haver was once addicted to the game. Now she creates an explosive performance together with the prize-winning dancers of Club Guy & Roni and the ingenious musicians of Slagwerk Den Haag. With music composed by Thijs de Vlieger, part of the world famous electronic music trio NOISIA. TETRIS Mon Amour is a metaphor for real life. If you push yourself harder, your life score can increase. The only way to master the game is to play with self control at the highest speed. You need to find a way to fit into an existing structure, before it’s ‘Game Over’…
