Tetris is a simple vintage computer game but it remains fascinating and truly addictive. It quickly conquered the world when it was invented in 1984 and is still going strong. The game managed to inspire choreographer Roni Haver in a completely unique way. With her production of TETRIS Mon Amour she declares her love for this game and the way it provides order and self-control. In the game, you have to deal with the falling Tetris blocks. It's much like life itself, where you have to manage everything that comes your way. TETRIS Mon Amour is a high-pressure dance concert where every detail and every finger is choreographed like clockwork. It is a play with the abstraction of the game but also with the idea that strict rules call for creativity. The music is composed by Thijs de Vlieger, part of the world-famous electronic music trio NOISIA, and will be played live on stage by the versatile musicians of Slagwerk Den Haag.
