Jacuzzi has long organised Jacuzzi Mondays for 'dancers and non-dancers' in the nearby Warmoesstraat studio. In these sessions, one of the members or a guest takes the participants into their performance and/or dance practice. In this edition of Come Closer, the audience is invited to move and dance together in the centuries-old church building.

For this evening, the collective has developed a relay session, led in turn by five of the members. This is a unique opportunity to experience other ways of moving and perceiving, through the lens of five performance makers.
