Danslokaal 8

Choreographer Andreas Hannes makes a work for the eighth edition of DANSLOKAAL.

DANSLOKAAL 8 is an annual talent development project of Conny Janssen Danst in collaboration with Dansateliers and Korzo productions. During the project, three choreographers will have the opportunity to develop new work for and with the dancers of the company. This year Dansateliers invited Andreas Hannes to participate in DANSLOKAAL 8. In addition, Dalton Jansen (Conny Janssen Danst) and Antonin Rioche (Korzo) take part in the project.

Andreas Hannes created a performance entitled: ‘Warping Soul’.
To “warp” is to bend or turn from the direction or course. In Star Trek, for example, starships enter warp to travel. In this show, that is inspired by the practice of continuous skipping, the dancers emerge within a space that is constantly in transit. In the mercy of external forces, they move within movement. Through the disorientation and organisation of bodies and space, movement becomes a dance of potential transformations and narratives.
