PORTRAIT PROJECTS
(DANCE DANCE DANCE)

2012 On-going


INTRO:

Five young people expose five inner worlds in dance.

Paolo Yao (IT), IJbert Verweij (NL), Gover Meit (NL/CW), Ida Fridan Edersen (DK) and Xue Mu (CN). Having different cultural backgrounds, raised with different ideologies and living different attitudes, they all got intoxicated by dance. Their characteristic empowering body dynamics is attractive as well as intimidating. No matter the moving skills, but the total expression, the openly exposed desire, search, struggle and joy, can be acknowledged as the rarely exposed yet profound existential state of mind.
