on theatre and dance

"The performance civilization of European origin suffers from the division between theatre and dance, almost as though these two were two different universes of expression.
They are in fact a single world which develops into distinct genres and yet is rooted in the experience of how the performer's body-mind becomes scenically present.
Instead of theatre and dance, we can talk of deep dance and evident dance. Deep dance is typical of the scenic forms which do not appear to be danced. Evident dance sometimes separates itself from every mimetic or narrative criterion and presents itself as a pure expression of physical dynamism.
All performance, however, is dance at its physical and mental roots, a dance of energy and thought."

Jansbeekdans was comissioned for the opening of the Water Museum in Arnhem in 2004. The pictures by Ton van Vliet unfold following the trajectory of the water from its spring in the forest of Sonsbeekpark, through the city, to finally pour into the Rhine. The dance is contained in the frame of the slides, immersed in the light of constantly flowing water images.

The costume was designed by Shuhei Numata and Falk Hübner composed music for violine, horn, vibraphone and water sounds.
Last summer it was performed at BuitenBeeld Festival in Doesburg, where a tower was built around the plateau so that the audience could watch it from above. Jansbeekdans was also filmed in 2006, turned into a videodance.
