Intercultural dance projects

 

Cataract

 

Cataract

Cataract is a collaboration between Dutch photographer Claudia den Boer, Flemisch cultural philosopher Marc Colpaert, Malaysian dancer Beh Chin Lau, Swiss-Brazilian dancer Natalie Wagner and me, with coaching by dance dramaturg Guy Cools. Cataract will be a new dance piece within the international and interdisciplinairy project Where Two Seas Meet of MoveToMeet. 

Cataract is based on the idea that our outlook on reality is unclear, veiled... and that it can't be any other way. Our inspiration will come out of Sufi philosophy, with which Jinn as a Buddhist in Malaysia is also familiar. During rehearsals, a residency period of two weeks, we developed dance and decor based on philosophical conversations about the theme and what it means to each of us.

Residencies 2017 at DansBrabant (NL), Cultuurhuis de Warande (BE), and 2018 at TanzArt (Germany).
