 Club Guy & Roni, Navdhara India Dance Theatre and Slagwerk Den Haag perform 'Fortune'.

How do you find meaning when nothing lasts forever? Where do you seek happiness when being happy is “just the way you feel” at any given moment? How do you live in the here and now when the next challenge lies just around the corner?

The universal law of change is that nothing stays the same. Our neatly asphalted roads, beautiful houses, accumulated possessions, love, suffering, all are finite. Frightening though it might seem, perhaps it’s this impermanence that makes life so amazing.  The dance performance Fortune is the result of a fascination with this impermanence that is inherent of nature.  

“We traveled to India convinced our Eurocentric morals were enough to tell us the full story about humanity, and the ‘right’ way of living. Our partners in India gently changed our view of the world, from a critical, almost cynical view to a more companionate, softer, and humbler perspective. They shared with us their perspective on change and impermanence, and the beauty and fortune it entails.”  

– Guy Weizman 

In Fortune the choreographers Roni Haver, Guy Weizman, Ashley Lobo, the dancers and the musicians each in their own way go in search of the meaning of the wonderful gift of life. The result is a dance performance that travels through India like a road movie, illustrating the wonder of life with a chain of images, impressions, and moments. 

The music in Fortune is inspired by the rich colours of India. The percussionists of Slagwerk Den Haag play Indian instruments such as the sarod and tabla, and an open call was held inviting Indian composers to send in their work. The music for the performance is composed using these tracks and soundbites from Dharavi, one of Mumbai’s biggest slums. 

After Happiness, Phobia, Freiheit, LOVE, and Freedom, Fortune is the next performance in the series The human odyssey, in which Club Guy & Ronnie works with international artistic partners to explore how our emotions determine our lives.

Expanding your horizons is not easy, so we thought it was a good idea to reach out to different cultures. It’s not enough to read about them; it’s essential to put yourself in another reality. We’ve worked in Morocco and Mexico, and now we were in India. It’s really interesting to explore the concept of fortune, both from a eurocentric and an Indian viewpoint. “

– Roni Haver
