Ellis van Veldhuizen (1996) graduated from the Fontys Dance academy in 2017. Here she developed a fascination for the human ‘being’ and started to focus on the question: What does ‘being alive’ mean and how can this be captured? With her work she tries to capture the often abstract and invisible awareness of “having an experience” in a readable, embodied form. She started the study Psychology to enrich her insights in the hidden worlds of our individuality and find the different places where body and psyche will meet as a being.
Ellis van Veldhuizen is one of the young choreographers that will develop a new short piece as part of Dansateliers’ annual makers-trajectory One Night’s Dance 2018.
