After VanThorhout, in which Alexander Vantournhout appeared solo on stage, not standing returns with a group show featuring eight acrobat-dancers. The performers move like gears of a collective body to the tunes of experimental rock music. Together they explore quasi-impossible balances, challenge each other and defy gravity.

With the tightly orchestrated chaotic movement landscapes of Foreshadow, Alexander Vantournhout takes a new step in his exploration of the relationships between gravity, movement, balance, and spatiality. In addition to the floor, which played a prominent role in SCREWS and Through the Grapevine, the wall now also becomes a dance partner.
