Tuur Marinus (1981, Belgium) studied visual arts at the KdG Hogeschool (Antwerp) and contemporary dance at P.A.R.T.S. He created the dance performance Dominos and Butterflies with the Brussels based dance collective Busy Rocks, followed by Still Animals, 3on3, Cyclop Project and The Workshop. The installation version of Still Animals was presented in musea, public spaces and theatres. Tuur Marinus also worked as a dancer for Vincent Dunoyer, Theater Zuidpool and They Are Here.
Under his own name Tuur Marinus has produced a number of dance creations, amongst which Still Animals (a stage version and an installation version), which has also extensively toured through Europe since its creation in 2012. This piece is shown in theatre spaces as well as in arts centers, and in street or city festivals. Tuur developed a participatory photography workshop that accompanies the performance, in which the audience is invited into a live photo shooting. The resulting photographic assemblages have been exhibited in different arts contexts, such as the Coup de Ville festival (Sint-Niklaas).
