a.vandenbersselaar Geen categorie Leave a Comment

Fontys Dance Department at Fontys School of Fine and Performing Arts in Tilburg, The Netherlands has organized an Intensive Study Program (ISP) Re-Designing Spaces for teachers as well students in October 2015. The ISP is part of the large research Inclusive Dance. The transferable skills of the dance artist. This platform is the outcome of the research, ending in 2017.

The workshop consisted of a playful exploration to improvise a solo by interacting with the architectural space.

The100Hands create interactive dance performances, mostly site specific, now and then staged in theaters. Since 2014 Jasper Džuki Jelen (NL/SI) and Mojra Vogelnik Škerlj (SI)combine their backgrounds in contemporary dance and architecture to create works that strongly relate to space. The movement vocabulary of this duo sources from partnering and martial arts and fuels an interest in the social, interactive potential of physical performance formats. The work of The100Hands is presented in many international festivals and is produced in Belgium, Sweden, Denmark and Egypt. Its human and physical approach speaks to a wide audience of all ages. The100Hands was founded in 2014 and is based in Amsterdam. Since 2015 The100Hands are also more active in The Netherlands.
