One-day Dance Festival

You Better Move! is a meeting of ideas, a collective 'aha' experience, a  sparkling event with work fresh of the press. 


With this one-day dance festival, Dansmakers Podium is stage for the makers with a multi-coloured collection of new, radical and qualitative work. This recurring festival is an invitation to the dance field to come together, talk and share ideas. Each edition is composed by an Amsterdam choreographer. 



While the Internet of Things is in order to collapse under the weight of its own success and we freak out looking for The New Next Thing, it is the artist who with his work exceeds our imagination. Not just divine inspiration, but hard work, determination and a tireless interest in the world and in the others is the germ of his work. With the series You Better Move!, Dansmakers Amsterdam is a stage for establishing makers to show their work, a process, to give and take workshops or to pitch ideas. Each editionis composed by an Amsterdam choreographer and an opportunity for the Amsterdam dance scene to get and to stay together.

Curated by Fernando Belfiore

In the third edition of You Better Move, Choreographer Fernando Belfiore* (BR, 1983) brings the work of six young performance artists together. The works express their concerns about otherness, sexuality and fluidity of identity, portrayed in extremely physically and unconventional forms. With their body and presence they edit the space and in doing so, they focus fearlessly and generously on the spectator. The world that this generation of performers shows us is exciting, personal and sensorial.



With works by Marlieke Burghouts, Fernando Troya, Ingeborg Meier, Elysia Mc Mullen, Èleni Ploumi and Jette Hermanis.
