For the fourth time the Moving Futures dance and performance festival travels to Theater Bellevue  and Dansmakers Amsterdam with multiple dance performances, film, masterclasses and context programs in one day.

With exclusively on Thursday a double premiere and daily plenty of opportunities to go into conversation with  the makers.

On Saturday we celebrate the end of the festival with a bright after party at Dansmakers Podium.

WEDNESDAY 28 MARCH, 20:00 – THEATER BELLEVUE >>>


On Wednesday March 28th the travelling dance festival is all about the insatiable appetite for movement. A program with film and a double bill with work of Joseph Simon & Jonas Frey and Guilherme Miotto in which the obsessive body is pushing the codes of dance.

  • Cinedans: film Zero-G
  • Infinite Games – Jonas Frey & Joseph Simon
  • Even Worse – Guilherme Miotto

Cinedans Exclusive Film Programm

Daily a selection of Cinedans Dance Films is projected in the Foyer. The program is based on the different themes and subjects of the performances in the festival.

 

Zero-G - Jannis Lenz (OO/DE 2016) 10'

In an almost weightless manner a group of tracers moves through the big city. Poetry slammer Fatima Moumouni voices the youths' attitude towards life.

 

Infinite Games – Jonas Frey & Joseph Simon / Dansateliers: Inspired by the endless forms of a hiphop-battle, two b-boys create a playground where possibilities are infinite.

Jonas and Joseph met each other at the ArtEZ Dance academy in Arnhem. Both makers are passionate about break-dance and combine urban, classical and contemporary dance forms in their work. 

 

Even Worse – Guilherme Miotto: Three of the most surprising dancers in the urban- and contemporary dance field in a breath-taking performance.

Guilherme Miotto in 2015 received the André Gingras Award, out of the jury's report: His work breaths the complexities of our times, with his performers who seem to be propelled by their surroundings, their bodies searching for balance.'

 

 

 

THURSDAY 29 MARCH – THEATER BELLEVUE >>>

Dutch travelling dance festival Moving Futures is outlining the thinking world of a new generation of dance makers and performance artists who have the audacity to bring urgent themes and experiment on stage. On Thursday you will witness two intense premieres of the choreographers Fouad Boussouf and Jija Sohn.

The Korean – Japanese Jija Sohn, winner of Moving Forward Young Dancemakers Award 2016, brings the pleasures and perversity of Japanese Kyabajo and its Western equivalent to the audience. In the international performance Nass (les Gens), seven men, seven dancers, glorify the power of the collective in the intense and acrobatic dance. (Dutch Premiere, Official selection of Aerowaves TWENTY18.)

 

  • Aerowaves TWENTY18: Nass (Les gens) - Cie. Massala / Fouad Boussouf (FR)
  • Cinedans: Itsy Bitchy, Zero G (optie)
  • Kyabajō- Jija Sohn (PREMIERE)

 

 

Nass (Les gens) - Fouad Boussouf (FR): Seven dancers glorify the power of the collective in an intense and acrobatic dance. With their pace as engine, continuously and obsessive.

Born in Morocco in 1978, he arrived in France in 1985 where he learned hip-hop dance and where he took his first class jazz dance. Choreographer and dancer Fouad Boussouf followed various courses in dance, including contemporary dance. His eclectic career included a choreographic research in a modern approach. Curious and stubborn to labels, Fouad Boussouf is not limited to a single register of dance in particular.

Aerowaves TWENTY18: An international performance from the official selection of Aerowaves TWENTY18.

Kyabajō– Jija Sohn – Premiere: Kyabajō is a visual performance in which the raw side of man is celebrated and the seedy embraced. Surrender to a game of oppression, power, and liberation.

The Roof - Moha Projects >>>

Moha is an artistic collective, operating in the public space of Amsterdam for over five years. Moha is the Hungarian name for moss. It is a familiar living element that grows almost everywhere, on everything in any conditions even in the most unexpected places. We are specialized in developing art projects in which innovative forms of participation and cooperation go hand in hand with the artistic experiment. The context in which we are working, the city and its different social dynamics as well as the research on locality, on how people make and use their living environment, are the starting points for all our initiatives. We approach our work as facilitators rather than leaders, therefore our projects take the form of collaborative, ongoing platforms where the public is invited to join.

 

15:00
 

Leadership Through Movement – Ido Batash & Anne de Hoog >>>

Discover how dance can make you more aware of your own leadership-skills by the means of movement, posture, group dynamics and expression.
