Feri de Geus worked closely together with composer Stefan van Campenhout, creating eloquent live music productions until Stefan’s tragic disappearance in the Swiss Alps in 1993. In 1996, he was invited to create a dance piece Covered in collaboration with a pop group called Nerve. Their heavy metal sound was an ultimate challenge. Together with five dancers, Phil Mills and Tom Holkenberg (world-famous as Junkie XL) were easily integrated into a stunning performance, which was both presented in music halls and theatres. The piece was based on a number of case studies dealing with cocaine addicts. The ludicrous attitudes and freakish, unpredictable movements of the characters coincided with the loud undulations of the techno metal band in a wadded set designed by Sjoerd Wagenaar.
