Widely praised. A new choreography that highlights people’s relationship with technology, obsession over social media, addiction to ‘likes’ and its influence on existing and newly formed human relationships. To be performed by the Dutch National Ballet Junior Company in 30+ theaters (2018/2019). A video of the entire choreography is available for (international) ballet companies that consider adding this piece to their repertoire, please contact me for more information.
Premiered at the Dutch National Ballet and featured at Lowlands Festival. Selected for International Draft Works 2019 (Royal Opera House). Awards: Critic’s Choice Best Premiere in leading dance magazine Dance Europe.
International production for a young audience (2+) in partnership with Dutch National Opera, Oorkaan and Philharmonie Luxembourg. Premiered on October 19, 2019 in Amsterdam and scheduled to tour internationally for the next years. Winner of the YAM awards 2020. From the jury: “Very high level. The artists are excellent. Many nice ideas and great movements. It is just amazing how sometimes a performance becomes something more. Here it happens. The artists are so skillful in all areas, movements, navigating the stage and communicating. Playing their instruments and singing. The preciseness of all the artistic intensions is a delight. To make art for children from 2 till 5 years and still make it interesting for all ages, also parents is extremely difficult, but in this production they have nailed it.”
