Until death do we dance

Total Brutal founder and choreographer Nir de Volff explains how growing up in Israel influenced his latest work

- +

Nir de Volff suggests sitting by the window in Amarin Plaza's food court because he wants to gaze at the streets of Bangkok. The Israel-born, Berlin-based dancer, choreographer and founder of the Total Brutal dance company says he loves the city's energy, especially the combination of Buddhism and the state of chaos on the streets. 

Scenes from Nir de Volff’s past works.

De Volff first came to Thailand in 2010, when he brought his creation The Ministry Of Truth to Patravadi Theatre and collaborated with local performers. This time, budget and time limitations made collaboration with local performers impossible, so instead there will be a workshop at Rumpuree World Dance Studio. And this weekend, Total Brutal will stage Dancing To The End, a piece exploring death on the personal level and in contemporary cultures.
