The hidden floor 2017 / Collaboration
The hidden floor is a creation by Franck Chartier with the dancers of NDTI. With this short piece, they are completing the triptych that started with The missing door (Gabriela Carrizo, 2013) followed by The lost room (Franck Chartier, 2015).
The piece addresses some of the themes that were already present in the previous two productions: the memory, the disruption of time. The characters find themselves in a public space, maybe a restaurant, taken over by nature. They are experiencing their final moments as the water slowly starts to rise. Holding on to their last hope, they try to survive and find a way out, not only physically but also mentally.
The hidden floor premiered on October 5th, 2017 in the Zuiderstrandtheater in The Hague (NL) as part of the triple bill programme entitled Side B: Adrift, which also included The missing door and The lost room.
