What are you most looking forward to in One Night’s Dance?

What do you hope to gain in the process?
‘I hope to gain a better understanding about my responsibility in a collaborative project, I want to gain an understanding in how Alexandra and me work together. And I want to keep developing my own signature as a maker.’
What are your dreams for the future?
‘My dream is to establish myself as a professional choreographer and dancer in the Netherlands and Belgium. And of course I want to continue performing with collective Strange Strangers.’
What is typically you?
I’m addicted to coffee and when I create I drink even more coffee. I’m an extraverted, energetic, positive artist who likes to keep life light.’
