“Sharing knowledge and understanding of inclusive dance through live performance, debate, and talks by leaders in the field”
** Tickets are from now on only available at the Korzo Theater box office (€ 67,50 / € 35,00 -students- )**
As part of our mission to raise awareness about ‘inclusive dance’ and the empowerment of dancers with disabilities, DanceAble is delighted to announce our first international symposium dedicated to this vital and innovative area of the arts. Developed with the support of the Landelijk Kennisinstituut Cultuureducatie en Amateurkunst (LKCA), this ground-breaking one-day event will focus on sharing knowledge and understanding of inclusive dance through live performance, debate, and talks by leaders in the field.
Designed to be thought-provoking, interactive and inspiring, the programme ranges from keynote speeches and workshops to plenary sessions – and the opportunity to see plenty of inclusive dance in action. Participants will be treated to performances from Introdans as well as a set of duets by Fang-Yu Shen and Min Hee Bervoets, especially commissioned by Holland dance for DanceAble. Hiphop crew ILL-Abilities completes the dance programme with a special performance produced in collaboration with Lloyd Marengo.
The DanceAble Symposium promises to be an inspiring day with keynotes by Janice Parker (UK) en Lucy Bennett (Stopgap Dance Company/VK), workshops from Eline van Ark, Jan van den Hout, Marc Vlemmix (NL), Kris De Visscher (Demos/BE), André Arends, Hans Noyens en Piet Roorda (LKCA/NL), Nienke Reehorst (BE), Suzanne Schneider (CH), Iris Bouche en Karel Tuytschaever (BE) and performances by ILL-Abilities, Min Hee Bervoets, Fang-Yu Shen (Scapino Ballet Rotterdam) and Introdans.
If there is one specific discipline that is associated with a body that is function physically perfect, then it has to be dance. We at Holland Dance think it is time to question this traditional stance. For the first time in the Netherlands a space will be created for integrated dance with this unique event called DanceAble. This form of movement attempts to literally go beyond physical limitations by positively working with the possibilities of both abled and disabled bodies.
