Movement Essays is an encounter with dancer and choreographer Anneleen Keppens. Inspired by the personal essay in the tradition of writer Michel de Montaigne, she presents three ‘movement essays’ that each place a fundamental aspect of abstract choreography at the centre and, at the same time, trigger associations, emotions and reflections beyond the field of dance. In the essay On Tempo, Anneleen tries to make tempo visible and explores the relationship it has with emotion, genre, story and meaning. With On Shape she enters into a dialogue with the sculptural aspect of dance, with what shapes can potentially suggest and the impossibility of shapelessness. In I am large – I contain multitudes she explores the diverse movement qualities with which she can dance and fully embraces the plurality of her body.
Anneleen brings the atmosphere of the studio, where she asks questions, wonders, is surprised and discovers connections, to the stage. She doesn’t want to convince you of a point of view, but rather involve you in her artistic process. The three movement essays are connected through their passionate exploration of movement and together create an intimate and diverse experience of dance.
