Event

It's going to get worse and worse and worse, my friend
Presented by Springboard Performance's 2016 Fluid Festival

Lisbeth Gruwez | Voetvolk
Belgium


Speeches are powerful weapons. Magnetic Belgian dancer theatre artist Lisbeth Gruwez grips your attention like an old-style preacher working a revival tent. - Janet Smith, Geogia Straight

A speech can be a mighty weapon. Throughout the centuries it has enthused countless masses and galvanized them into action, for better or for worse. It has unleashed revolutions and fueled wars. Just by the power of words. But a speech does not only enthuse the hearers, often it also transposes the speaker into a state of trance. Then he loses himself in a stream of words, in an obsessive, ecstatic way of speaking. The power of a speech often depends on the trance of the speaker.

In "It's going to get worse and worse and worse, my friend" Lisbeth Gruwez dances the trance of that ecstatic speechifying. In the process, she takes advantage of fragments from a speech by the ultraconservative American televangelist Jimmy Swaggart.
