FLAM Festival, Amsterdam


Having a background in fine art and design, I am a choreographer (graduated at the School for New Dance Development in Amsterdam), researcher and movement research teacher. Since the beginning of my practice as choreographer, I have been working in collaboration with architects, filmmakers, visual artists, writers, besides other dance makers. To work in collaboration means for me to create platforms for understanding relations and unfolding perspectives. Platforms where to bring methodologies from different fields to fluctuate, proposing every entity to become porous, multifaceted.
My practice, both as maker and as teacher, is currently focused on understanding bodies and movement within the philosophical frame of thinking-doing. This frame proposes to look at the constellations of human and no-human bodies, trespassing and pre-staging their semantic registration. To understand the body as a place for potentiality, a place for study before thought and impression are formed. Within this frame, I am developing a practice which I call “corporeal soft questioning”. This practice focuses on the duration of activity and its politics, on the exploration of the relation  between open somatics and the notion of semblance and on creating corporeal situations for embodying impossibilities and playing with not knowing.
