WE DO NOT KNOW HOW TO DANCE
“We do not know how to dance, but we will really try it”.
WE DO NOT KNOW HOW TO DANCE was premiered in May 2018 at Het Entrepot in Brugge (BE), as part of the Double Bill Night. It was also programmed to be performed later on, the same month at Eskimofabrik in Ghent (BE). The Portuguese’s version was premiered at Setubal’s International Theater Festival, in Portugal the same year.
It is a Pollock canvas. It is an attempt to open spaces between limits. It is about two bodies that move following one heart beat in a previously chosen time. It is an attempt to live and find the multiple answers to concrete questions. It is an attempt to look at life again, to understand it and understand each other. It is about getting back to when we were free and anything was possible. It is about here and now. It is about all of us. It is about the space in between: We do not know how to dance and This could all be dance if we try.

Originally founded in 2015 in Madrid (Spain), Yellow Collective is a live art and experimental theatre company currently based both in Spain and the UK. We create unique and intimate pieces that challenge and provoke today’s audience’s beliefs and values. The aim is to strip away superficial theatricalities to emphasise the relationship between the performer and the audience members through a visually striking and minimalistic aesthetic.
The company was created thanks to the support of PKMÑ, which provided a work space for us to develop an explorative investigation which became a multidisciplinary 60-minute piece. This piece, THE LIGHTS, was premiered at the same venue in January 2016. After a successful first run, the production was selected to be part of “Imparables” (experimental theatre festival for new artists in Spain).Afterwards, the company moved to London to develop P.A.T.S. in collaboration with Swedish director Johan Bark, which was premiered in London at The Lighthouse Sharing on 2017. The company is currently touring this show around Europe at festivals such as Dreams Before Dawn in Paris, Teatro do Festa in Lisbon, Camden Fringe in London and Birmingham Fest in Birmingham.
The company is currently in Belgium developing their new piece, which will be premiered at the end of this year.
