DANCE! Project & Auditions
7 choreographers, 7 pieces, 7 styles
A project by Tribes
‘Nobody cares if you dance well. Just get up and dance. Great dancers are great because of their passion.’
Inspired by our last Korzo Production in June, we were left with the desire to bring more people to the stage. As Tribes we believe firmly that dance is for everybody and that everybody can dance, that even when you don’t know how to dance, you can still dance beautifully and from the heart. That is why we set ourselves the challenge to choreograph from that, inspired to dive into the world of authentic expression. Setting ourselves the challenge of letting go of the idea that the stage is only for those who embody the right techniques, instead we allow ourselves to be inspired by one of the greatest teachers of all time
‘I feel that the essence of dance is the expression of men – the landscape of his soul’ – Martha Graham.
We have all experienced those moments when we were moved soul to soul, feeling the authentic presence of somebody in their movement in their dance. How endlessly mesmerizing and beautiful that is.
We want to explore this concept with dancers and choreographers from various backgrounds and together create the performance DANCE! We want to bring people together not focussing on level or experience, but on willingness to join, explore and create.

– an underlying feeling or influence, especially one that is contrary to the prevailing atmosphere and is not expressed openly.
In this creation process the dancers and choreographer will be working with feelings and emotions that are suppressed but need a way out. What is asked of the dancers is a willingness to share and work from their own personal experiences.

LOST (working title)
A contemporary / dance theatre piece about loss.
‘There was no goodbye, just an absence, sudden, abrupt, and louder then any voice could be.’ – Edward Lee
We say goodbye all the time, to things, people, places. Sometimes we’re aware of it in the moment, sometimes we only notice what we lost when we’re looking back. Loss can feel like a deafening silence.
We will create images that speak louder then words. I am looking for expressive, strong dancers who are comfortable with improvisation, partnering and co-creating.
Saturday March 18th – 10:00-11:00 (Haagweg)

For the show I would love to challenge myself and my dancers to dig a little deeper. I’m a rough hard dancer, but I also love to express emotion but I was never really able to make a piece like that. In this piece I would like to let you take a look into my experience with loss and grief. Not only the sad/depressed side that we always see, but also the feeling of anger and the feeling of helping each other through tough times. I’m really excited for this intensive training period. My goal is to really create a bond with each other in a short time, to be able and willing to share with each other and also to teach you some dope choreography no matter what level of dance you have!
STYLE: Hiphop/ mixed styles in it
Saturday March 18th – 11:00-12:00 (Haagweg)
Your entire physiological structure is composed of the remnants of stars that exploded billions of years before we were here. Our entire composition is made up of cosmic fragments of infinite proportion. And in that we are all extensions of each other’s subtle bodies. But if this is true, then what is truly mine? Where do I end and where do you begin? Where can i find that which I can truly change?
Style: Natural Movement, Contemporary (Ballet)
Sunday March 19th – 13:00-14:00 (Haagweg)
To find someone is to seek them and let them know that they are found.
Style: My main styles are Hip-Hop, Freestyle, and breakdance. But I love mixing and all the styles that I know to the things that I create.
Sunday March 19th – 14:00-15:00 (Haagweg)
“Forget what you know, great mysteries I will show. Let me uncover your eyes, for the truth to be known. Beyond the disguise, you’ll try. But I know – mighty things I will show. Let me uncover.”
