This spring is all about being, in the present moment!
Present Performing workshop @ Isadora Festival (Krasnoyarsk, Russia/Russie) – 17-20 May 2016
Being – performance @ Isadora Festival (Krasnoyarsk, Russia), 21 May

This instantly composed solo is based on the rollercoaster of emotions, questions & reflections on life Susanne experienced recently, after close encounters with death. What is left after so much loss? What is gained? How is life coloured indelibly by this experience?
Movement, sound & text are combined in the present moment to create this fleeting, unrepeatable performance, as the present is all we really have.
Live. Love. Life.

Check out this article for more convincing about why dance is good for you! Not that you needed it! 😉
An Oxford University study released in October states that exertive synchronising with others (like dancing) release opioids, endorphins & endocannabinoids – in a nutshell, a natural high. It also raises your pain threshold and encourages social bonding. All the more reason to move my friends! … although we didn’t really need any did we 😉
SoloConversations Dance Collective starts up again soon working on The Grave is Yawning, for our premiere in March 2016 @ Théâtre de la Vie (Brussels). Here are a few images from the studio…
“We are told that actions speak louder than words. But I wonder, do they? Our words, however we communicate them, are just as powerful. Whether we speak the words with our own voices, type them with our eyes, or communicate them non-verbally to someone who speaks them for us, words are among our most powerful tools.” – Martin Pistorius
How will you use your words today? With others, with yourself?
Thanks Martin for this reminder!
Super big thanks to Sarah Prescimone, who was in my 2nd year class at Fontys Academy from Jan – April 2015, for making this cool video!
