A dance about female strength, perseverance, pride, connectedness and precision.
“On June 21, 2020, artistic inspirator, dancer and choreographer Jens van Daele passed away. Jens is unforgettable as a dancer, as a maker and above all as a person. Not only for me personally, but for many people he has worked for and with as a dancer and later as a choreographer.
This is also the case for many generations of young dance students. In recent years we have worked with great pleasure and energy on new creations as part of the final performances for, among others, Fontys Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Tilburg, Codarts Rotterdam, National Academy of Theater Arts Poland. This invariably resulted in an inspiring introduction and cross-pollination with a new generation of dance talents. Several young dancers in our company were often given a place as an intern and then moved on to become a professional. Guiding dance students in this way and introducing them to the professional field has become part of our philosophy. In 2017, Jens and I created Stormlines for and with 7 dancers, then third-year students at Fontys. One of the plans that Jens would have liked to carry out was to bring Stormlines back to the stage. That is why this energetic and challenging choreography is now part of this final performance, his work, philosophy and ideas will be continued, and the new generation of dancers will also be introduced to our working method and our characteristic, poetic and powerful dance language.”

“In this short exploration on gravitational forces, the dancers are moving in a space that is in constant transit. Within aerodynamic landscapes, their bodies are pulled and pushing in an interplay between submission and dominance.
Through the practice of continuous skipping and the subsequent practice of warping (warp: to bend /deviate from the original course or direction), the body stays vulnerable to each own movement and is searching for ways to reconfigure and inhibit transformation through its sensory awareness and equilibrium. The individual movement inevitably influences the collective network, opening rhythmical systems and fleshing potential landscapes and relations. “

The piece is based on a Japanese proverb: "Nana Korobi hachee oki": If you fall seven times, you get up eight times.This proverb relates to our attitude to failure, setbacks and disappointments that unfortunately happen too often in these bizarre times. Resilience is central to this choreography and is translated into a very physical movement idiom within the Urban Contemporary genre.

“I did my best to notice when the call came down the line.
Up to the platform of surrender I was brought, but I was kind.
And sometimes I get nervous when I see an open door.
Close your eyes. Clear your heart. Cut the cord.
Are we human or are we dancer?”

“The Sonic Sessions departs from the idea of understanding movement like sound: vibration and frequencies. It is a live performance series, where movement is arranged as part of the soundscape, which is performed live. Movement and sound intertwine in a series of Sonicscores, which helps the performers map the internal structure. The Sonic Sessions play with the freedom and dynamics of live music sessions and the (hidden) precision of a choreographed piece. The creative process for the Sonic Sessions is intuitive, in dialogue with the performers and with BeingSonic (my method for movement creation) as the base for it.
