Besides social projects and performances I give dance classes which are based on sharing knowledge, creativity and techniques. The horizontal communication, exploration and exchange is important. I am specialised within the styles Physical Dynamics, Modern/Contemporary and (Contact-)Improvisation.
NEDERLANDSE DANS DAGEN 2019
In the context of the project Bloedbanden by the Nederlandse Dans Dagen in Maastricht I developed together with a family a humorous performance which is inspired by the chaotic but lovely life of the family.
“Bloedbanden demonstrates the role that dance and movement can have in the connection between different family members and generations. Every family has its own system. The experience of previous generations can determine how a family functions because of ingrained patterns of behaviour. Dance communicates what cannot easily be expressed in words.(…)”
SWEM! OVER LEVEN EN OVERLEVEN
SWEM! Over leven en overleven is an educational family performance of 30 minutes which I created together with four colleagues (third-year-students of Bachelor Dance in Education ArtEZ) at and inside the swimming pool. The performance creates ambiguous/alienated images to trigger the fantasy of the audience to let them create their own journey.
The students got inspired by both the necessity of water in our daily life and the danger that water can cause.
Together with the actors of Theater Klare Taal I deepened
my research about the unreserved and impulsive creativity.
By using my interdisciplinary tools of Nokerina as input and
starting point, I was able to approach the fascinating individuality
of the performers. Klare Taal is a theatre group of 14 actors with mental disorder.
