“What makes you feel alive? What is dance for you? What do we use dance for? If we get away from styles and codes, isn’t dance a great way to be in touch with our bodies and soul…? What is dance if not an experience? Can it contribute to make us feel alive?”
DANCE (2013) is a piece by choreographer Loïc Perela. He created the work during DANSLOKAAL 1, a project of Conny Janssen Danst and Dansateliers. For DANCE Loïc Perela asked his dancers questions like the above. This led them to explore different approaches for the body to generate life. Perela wants to demonstrate that dance is a tool of expression and to find a way to celebrate the body and let the soul travel.
