The Human Odyssey
The Human Odyssey: an artistic trajectory through continuous co-creations with dance companies around the world attempting to trace and capture human existential pillars enriching the discussion between cultures resulting in innovative artistic exchange and dialogue.
Every year Club Guy & Roni creates a new performance with a company abroad, touring both continents. In 2022 we will create FORTUNE with Navdhara India Dance Theater from Mumbai, in 2023 we will partner up with MovesMX from Guadalajara Mexico and festival Internacional Cervantino, Guanajato, and in 2024 we are creating FAITH with artists in and from Morocco.
These co-creations are artistically and culturally exciting, and the result is urgent, provoking and unique.

The question of what our, your or my freedom is culminates in the unimaginable story of Mohamedou Ould Slahi, which forms the core of our creation: the ongoing physical and political unfreedom of Mohamedou, who unfortunately left the biggest empty seat we have ever had during our premieres.
Freedom is the 3rd attempt we make to understand our standing point on the value of freedom. Starting with Phobia with Slovenian company En-Knap in 2016, followed by Freiheit in 2019 with Tanz Mainz, Germany.
Co creating with Mohamedou Ould Salahi, who got back his freedom during the tour of this performance, inspired many people around the world. FREEDOM will be performing in 2022 in the Netherlands, Germany and Korea, and have its tour in France in 2023.

Phobia is being defined by the fabulous dance scenes, while the mesmerising and intense music by Slagwerk Den Haag effectively (and loudly) deepens the disastrous atmosphere. – ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Dagblad van het Noorden
In 2022 FORTUNE will be created, together with Navdhara Indian Dance Theatre and Slagwerk Den Haag. An artistic conversation about fortune conducted from completely different perspectives.
Preparations for future collaborations include Youth with a group of aged performers in Asia, Faith with an interdisciplinary group of Moroccan artists, and a production with the Mexican cultural organisation MOVES.
