When making performance work I am
interested in the combination of the different disciplines
such as dance, text, live music, light and visual art,
where the diverse languages can dialogue to develop
together the specific universe of a piece.
I wish for each language to express itself by its own
specific nature while contributing to the whole.
My aim is that the spectator perceives and experiences
the core of the piece through different senses.
As the kinaesthetic aspect of dancing and performing
dancing is of great importance to me, I approach music
and sound not only in relation to their auditive information,
and light and image not only in relation to their visual
information, but I am also interested in how music,
light and image can be read as kinaesthetic information.
I have also developed diverse interdisciplinary
work and projects
with colleagues from other work fields such as architects
and filmmakers. These projects focus on dance research
and/or on creating work other than dance - for example
a documentary. These collaborations have been of great
inspiration and enrichment in giving my work a larger
context in the world.
