‘followfollow’ is a dance production about following and followers. About inspiring, copying and imitating. About fashion appearing, disappearing and returning. About following the lead and going a different way. About selfies and the latest TikTok challenges. About giving thumbs up and hearts. About groups and peer pressure. About chasing your heart and trying to be yourself in a world packed with contradictions. About looking for identity.
Choreographer and performer Koen De Preter has had a long collaboration with fABULEUS. He created the solo piece Les mots … toujours les mots bien sûr’ (2004), the youth production ‘.White.Muted.Crash.’ (2005) and the duet ‘We dance to forget’ (2007), which toured for more than six seasons in eleven countries. For his latest fABULEUS production Koen worked with a group of young people between the ages of 13 and 21.
