Research on Performance/Installation
A research on site-specific performance that investigated the disorder and the unfocused simultaneity of events; obscurity, the rejection of dramaturgical triggers; unspectacular-ness, a considerable disproportion between craftsmanship and the duration of the performance; indulgence, self-reference detached from an attempt towards authenticity and transparency of the creative process; the aleatoric, the development of ‘consciousness’ through chance, disjunction of meanings, and illogical encounters with ‘other’ sort of bodies, both material and virtual; timelessness, the attempt at the exploration of ‘new’ subjectivity through the production of a entity foreign to ‘itself’. Neither pre nor post human, but out of joint with its time.
Research Dylan Newcomb
moving towards new approaches in dance through a synergy of social science and movement
Placing the first research into Spiral Dynamics (model of psycho-socio development) into a lager frame of reference: relating it to a broader context of body-knowledge (Ayurveda & Sheldon’s theory on Body Types). How different body types interact with different stages of psycho-socio development, and how that again relates to different types of mental functioning.

The Lingual Body
& its different forms of expression
A research on different forms of expression and further possibilities of the faceless body (The Lingual Body), not to represent the image of the body but to let the person speak that is locked within the body. A search for a form of sensation that influences the perception of the spectator, as well as the experience of the performer.

Op zoek naar een sprookje
or: A story coming from the body
Research on body expression by combining the use of speech to body language. Developing a story coming from the character of the dancers and musicians (All Rhythm Brass-Band and a violin player) instead of starting from a story which already exists.
Research Kenzo Kusuda
(Realisms and virtualisms of meaningful events)
In this research Kenzo (dancer, choreographer), Nuska (researcher, dramaturge, dancer) and Bouke (film-maker, researcher) work within a mode of conversing. Just like any conversation, this process is based on interactive, relational patterns, as well as loads of contributing sub-themes, sudden ideas, shaping arguments, mixed with contextualizing it all - body language… Seemingly fragmented, it nevertheless has its developing routes and eventually, a thorough, directional shape.
