Lisbeth Gruwez dances Bob Dylan [2015]


Musician/composer Maarten Van Cauwenberghe, permanent partner of Voetvolk, plays Bob Dylan songs on vinyl; Lisbeth Gruwez dances. This establishes communication without words, connecting two people with songs from the sixties and seventies. Lisbeth Gruwez dances Bob Dylan is pure, minimalistic and takes you to that place where the evening fades into the night, where the party ends and guests go home, where one individual is left on the dancefloor, undisturbed, lost in a dialogue with music.




Lisbeth Gruwez dances Bob Dylan is a pearl. So pure, spontaneous and generous. On repeat. 

          Charlotte De Somviele - De Standaard

The precision of the movement is stunning, its repetition hypnotic. She thrusts her head forward a million times, she spins round and round a million times. All the way to drunkenness. Hers and the spectator's. 

          Pascale Zimmerman – Tribune de Genève

Generous by nature, the dancer constantly remains in touch with her audience ... this has to be seen as a moment of sharing through dance and music, mutually complementing each other in this particular alchemy that is the essence of the moment experienced as a community. 

         Quentin Guisgand – Infero Magazine


The performance Lisbeth Gruwez dances Bob Dylan shows again how each idea that Lisbeth Gruwez puts into body language makes a lasting impression. (...) There is a fine balance between the world-famous music of the songwriter and the personal physical translation by Gruwez, matching each other in intensity. No need to be a fan or connoisseur of Bob Dylan for Lisbeth Gruwez dances Bob Dylan. With her force Gruwez will surely pull you along.
