op zoek naar een sprookje or: A story coming from the body
In her 2nd research period at Danslab Karine Guizzo goes on experimenting on body expression. This time she combines the use of speech to her work on body language.
She is interested in developing a story coming from the character of the dancers and musicians working with her, instead of starting from a story which exists already. In collaboration with the 'All Rhythm Brass-Band' and a violon player, Karine explores the possibilities of working with the musicians' skills in other, more theatrical and individual ways than they normally would do. At the end everybody could be an actor in the upcoming performance.
"We started working on movement textures and connecting to the individual dancer,recreating a dance body with movement characteristic :the "dance character"/connecting/relating physical expression to oral expression.allowing this dance character to deepen and come out.
Exploration and possibilities of combining individual movement and personal qualities of dancers and musicians without losing the typicality of their own characteristics.
"Sometime a word ,a gesture,a story can remind us ,even for a moment,of what we are made of,and where we belong"
Dancers: Eline Tan, Milena Twiehaus
Violin player: Anne-Marie Volten

Karine will continue this research by creating a perfomance for the Theater Regentes (January 22nd & 23rd 2009).
