New work Prossimo
The new work Prossimo came out on the 8th of november 2010 at theater Bellevue Amsterdam, with performance also on the 9th and a discussion afterwards. The premiere is part of the Punch! Festival, initiated by Dansmakers.
Prossimo is an ode to the unpredictable individual. This multimedia dance performance deals with our need to be close to another. Technology increases the possibilties and strategies in making contact with somebody. How intimate could this contact be?

Broccoli Week is a pilot project that aims to broaden the possibilities of exchange and discussion within the performing field, crossing the borders between makers, performers, specialists and public.
Amore e Merda:
a duet about desire. Amore e Merda deconstructs the body to a faceless reservoir of impulses and desires. Between physical sensations and social schemes, the bodies search for identity. In an attempt to satisfy their needs buried deep within, the bodies speak.
Workshop Dance/movement research by Giulia Mureddu:
sharing her methodologies around the subject Lingual Body reviewing and disorientating both the dancing body itself and the perception of it.
Workshop Dance Criticisme by Cristine Rodes: a dramaturgical insight in a dance performance in order to write a well-founded critique (in English). Domein voor Kunstkritiek has included this workshop as part of the trajectTussen Kunst en Media.
Workshop Scenography by Dieuweke van Reij: theoretical insights into the different aspects of scenography after which there is the possibility to put it into practice.
Party: FREE COLONIAL STYLEE SOUND CUT with DJ WJM, Mat Pogo, JD Zazie (experiments in rhythm, live collage, errorbeat, mod classical, abstract chillout / avant lounge dj set)

Two weeks of research in view of the new project Prossimo.

What does it mean to meet in flesh and blood, which are the obstacles, the entrances and strategies?
How can we play with perspectives, which role can play the video-camera?
How distant and how near can you get as performer and spectator?
