Sensing Bodies - SHIFFT & SoulCypher

Pushing Waves

In Pushing Waves the digital sound frequency of a moving body is central. The dancer, armed with advanced directional microphones, directly influences the sound score that composer and sound artist Tom van Wee is creating at that moment.

Jasper van Luijk about Pushing Waves: “Sound is movement and every movement causes sound. Tom van Wee transforms a simple breath into a 3D sound journey and a footstep into an overwhelming beat. I am curious to see what boundaries we can push in making sound with our bodies.” In Pushing Waves, van Luijk and van Wee explore the synergy between sound and body.


A duet between dance and artificial intelligence (AI). In Transcendance, Ruben Chi and artist Bob Sizoo join forces to explore groundbreaking communication between humans, nature and machines through dance and virtual reality. The dancer enters into a duet with a digital and optimized version of himself created via artificial intelligence. A version that transcends human limitations and is not bound by fixed contours or restrictions.


SHIFFT is the Utrecht dance company of choreographer Jasper van Luijk. SHIFFT creates cross-disciplinary, contemporary dance performances about the people of the future. In 2025, SHIFFT will proudly launch a first 'double bill' in collaboration with SoulCypher, the company of artistic director and choreographer Ruben Chi.
