spider collective - DansCentrumJette
DCJ on Tour is an initiative launched by Danscentrumjette and Red Orange Productions.
Over the past few years, I noticed with pleasure that a number of evening-lenth
performances created with support of Danscentrumjette found their way to stages in
Belgium and abroad.
For newcomer artists who o en make shorter pieces, the time has arrived for their work
to nd their way to the right stages and platforms. Until now their options have been
limited to dance festivals. Danscentrumjette and RedOrangeProductions are actively
nding new possibilities for these young artists so that their beautiful, interesting, playful
and refreshing new creations may ourish.
We are happy to present this catalogue featuring creations made with the support of
Danscentrumjette. We know that many of you are already busy programming
contemporary dance and that you may be familiar with some of the artists presented here.
For others, we hope that this catalogue intrigues you to program contemporary dance in
your venue.
We hope to o er programmers a variety of possibilities to compile the dance events that
correspond to the pro le and vision of their programmation. Which is why the
performances are grouped according to length, from full evening to short format.
Should you desire, Danscentrumjette can also o er to frame or contextualize these works.
We would be happy to provide suggestions for a speci c artistic theme or certain audience
young, old, initiation to dance or experienced public… . We can also contextualize your
progam by proposing introductions, debates, workshops, lms or photo exhibitions.
Since 1996, Danscentrumjette has been stimulating, supporting and di using research and
creation in the eld of contemporary dance through residencies, professional training
programs and outreach. Danscentrumjette is based in Brussels. Red Orange Productions is
the independent management and production arm of DCJ and aims to provide an outlet
for new and experienced dance makers.
Enjoy the catalogue and please feel free to contact us any time.

How Ever Hard you Run, You always Remain in your Own Skin.
This landschape has no end. It is dirty, magical and quiet, it wrinkles. It is tight and breakable.
Overgrown with hair at some places and totally deserted at others. It contains stories you can not or
should not remember, scraped of the skin, encounters only your skin is allowed to remember. The
chances on getting lost are apparent. The current Magdala.
In MAGDALA two dancers turn realities inside out, each others reality and those of the women in
between them. A current of anonymous bodies ows eternally through time and space, of which
some stories come dri ing on the surface and others never catch the daylight. Stories get split over
more women or stories get a second life on somebody elses body... Ongoing, always ending and
starting, a history of female bodies.
Caroline D Haese BE and Leena Keizer FIN/NL danced together in the Dutch Muziektheater in
2007. D Haese Bachianas 2009, Elexir 2004 and Keizer winner of ITS Festival 2008 are strongly
attracked to each others maker- and performership.
With Magdala they hit the stage again together but now with own work emerging from their
intruiging collaboration. They prepared themselves for electrictiy, loneliness, alienation, coming
home, cursing, saying goodby, staying.

Technical details
Arrival of the company: 9am unless otherwise agreed, with a crew of two or three
persons technician and graphic designer, possibly the light designer and two
dancers, three or four extra dancers, one cellist and one member of the
Construction time of play set: at least four hours. One extra construction day is
preferable, but not always necessary, depending on the venue.
Break down and cleanup time is estimated to be two hours.
We prefer to have two extra technicians at our disposition. If this is not possible,
please let us know.
MAGDALA has a frontal positioning, and preferably the stage should be at the same
level as the audience. In larger venues it can be played STAGE ON STAGE in a black
box construction, where the wings need to be hanged at speci c distances. For
smaller stages, where the audience sits lower than the stage, a more conventional
frontal positioning is possible, but the rst three or four rows cannot be sold and
the latter rows might have to be closed o in order to preserve the intimate set-up.

The immaterial world
© Julyen Hamilton
This is my take on the beyond as it resides right in the here and now. It is both eerie and assuring; it
wavers calmly on the edge of perception and understanding. It provides no reference except the
movement of and the sounds from the body. Welcome to the Immaterial World.

Local Talk
Local Talk is a dance, text, space, voice and object piece. Local Talk is directed by Julyen Hamilton.
About Allens Line
Allen s Line is the company of Julyen Hamilton :
In 1991 I started a Company which I directed over the following 10 years making 13 pieces and
performing throughout Europe. Since then ... I made a whole series of solos and collaborations with
other dancers and musicians ... but did no company directing, so in the autumn of this year I will be
starting to work with a group of dancers and a poet living in Brussels. The central theme with this
group is the work with dance, space, text and voice orchestrating all and each of these elements and
doing it all on the y as an instant composition in performance.
Letting these areas of expression be made and housed all together, their individual qualities
constantly interacting at di erent levels, weaving a whole, multi layered expression. Stories,
conversations, vocal lines, melodies and dialogue all present, supporting and providing contexts for
each other.In my experience from making many pieces which explore and expose these issues, all
these elements live naturally together. The spoken voice is made through a moving body; a line of
speech inherently carries its melody; a phrase of dance automatically exists threaded with a musical
phrasing and temporal rhythms. My interest in placing these streams together is to touch the
expressive powers which they unleash through parallel support and lateral associations. We both cut
up and multi-layer the material, instantly editing as we go, letting the result be immediately

Tout le monde a n existe pas
Tout le monde a n existe pas is a very physical and
theatrical solo.
The tools are : a straightforward speech round disability,
an aesthetic prosthesis, a one hand body dancing and the
music of Tom Waits.
© Laura Zuallaert
This is physical theater solo willing to question di erences, monsters and ways of looking at
the other and at oneself.
Honestly, could you imagine waking up, every single morning, with your abby legs, your 7
ngers, your scary harelip, your eyes full of shit, your holeless ass, your small boobs, your fart
face, your bimbo brain, your missing hand ?
If anyone wants to walk in my shoes for a while... jump in !

Le pli
© Juan Adrio
The depth is a Fold of the surface Gilles Deleuze
Exploring the area of femininity and its surfaces, Le PLI brings us where the relationship and the
images are sometimes misleading. Two women, in the limit of reality and unconsciousness, between
the silence and the darkness of their beings, play with the unbalance, the stillness and the dri . A
game of sharing, dominating, being slave, controling…in a constant seek of balance in a di erent
rhythm of the time and where the space get folded in order to revelate the chiasm. A travel from the
deep to the surface.

Always known never met
The performance departs from the dialogue between a mother and her unborn child. The book
Lettere a un bambino mainato Letter to a child never born by OrianaFallaci is the inspiration.
Dancer KaterinaDietzova and actor David Eeles enter the dialogue and surf between conscious and
unconscious movements, inhibited and spoken words, visible sounds and intimate images. Through
the camera the live video images reveal themselves as an extension of the players.
By using strong images and by reducing the physical language to its essence I want to let the
spectator dive into what s happening on stage. Dance wells up - together with sound and image - in
the presence of performers Katerina and David. To me choreography is directing the intention of the
performers, the focus of the spectators, the essence of the elements forming a scene, and the journey
the di erent scenes express

Journey home
©Sandrine Penda
We create situations and atmospheres, develop the scenes around each ve of us as lead characters:
the folk dancer, the tough rock guy, the two inseparable brothers or the crystal silence dancer. In
subtleties between such Easter European traditions and Western cultural references, we continue to
create a playing eld onstage, where dancing reigns free and in which a special kind of physical
theatricality can emerge. Emotions, imagination, shared history and humor are all taking part in our
amalgam of short dance vignettes. Music is vital to our stage reality. Simon, as a careful tailorKapellmeister, is instantly knitting his colorful music to a perfect t for each dance scene. We sing!
Right from the centre of Slovakia, powerful and sensitive men voices sing about love and nature in
folk polyphonic harmonies. Journey Home is a voyage further into Les SlovaKs universe.

Multidisciplinary group performance
Spider on the edge/spider expand
Spider is a travelling artistic manifestation that combines dance, visual arts & writing and includes
artists from all over Europe. Together they have created a unique event format in which a core set of
works meet new works and works in progress and meld into a performative event that re ects the
environment in which it manifests.
The idea of the Spider project developed from scratch , dealing with concepts and principles from
the edge . How is it possible to build an international interdisciplinary structure out of nothing in
these days? With a lot of work, a lot of nerve, a lot of dialogue, but with a clear idea: Let s be
realistic and demand the Impossible!
About Spider
The project Spider on the Edge is a collaboration between the following
Organisations : Kink Kong/ Pekinpah Association, Collectif Loge 22, De Facto & Studio Za Suvremeni
Ples and now also Danscentrumjette and RedOrange Productions. The Spider project emerged as
an idea of the three dancers and choreographers: Matej Kej ar Slovenia , Michael Pomero France ,

Delivery performance
Delivery Performance is an improvisation project where dance, music and other elements come
together with the same aim, to transform a private non scenically space in a stage. With the private
space we speci cally mean your home. We want to transform your house through a performance by
giving you a new view of the space that you inhabit every day, keeping the intimacy of it.
Delivery Performance takes form depending on the place that you o er us. The improvisation
performance will be a ected by the form, light, objects, history…. that belong to the place.
Our goal is to bring an artistic expression to people in a particular way, through the concept of
sending and delivering. To make this happen it is necessary to follow the next steps:
1- The interested person has to contact us & indicate the date and place where she/he would like to
receive the Delivery Performance. A erwards we will make a second appointment before the
performance to visit the space that the customer proposes.
2- Visit the place house
3- De ne the work that is going to be done.
4- Performance
About Delivery Cie
Delivery company started this work with the creation of a research laboratory about space, with
improvisation as a technique for composition. We created short pieces based in the relationship
between bodies and space. The way space changes when a body moves in it, the way context a ects
the movement and how all this in uences the instantaneous composition are the bases of our work.
To all those elements we added , the voice, the manipulation of objects that became part of the
relationship body-space in the pieces, music, installation, video….A er a long period of research, we
decided to change the dance studio for a non-scenically place. Is this way, the concept of the
Delivery Performance and the shortmovie Derri re Elle were born.

Nourished by her past with the Pina Bausch Dance Theater, enriched by the several encounters an
choreographic experiences that she has made, Dominique Duszynski presents Ri , a duet that
arrives like an onomatopoeia, like a whistling, like a rhythmic refrain ...
2 generations of women are composing with time, and its forms, obviously sinuous...
Time is the element that one cannot stop but is always present. Time pulls apart but also brings
together. Time is the obvious detail. Time is the space between 2 notes, an interval, a suspension.
Time is the music played by Jacques Stotzem, a gi ed international Belgian guitar player. The groove
drags, leaves a trace and pushes forward… The tempos and the rhythms of the music allow changes
and open the space for: sensual, suspended, initial, chaotic moments.
About Dominique Duszynski
Dominique Duszynski has been dancing with Pina Bauschs dance theatre from 1983 till 1992. She has
been working on creations and mythical pieces such as: The Rite of spring, Kontakhof, Blaubart,
Nelken, Arien, 1980… Since 1988, she teaches for institutions and companies in Europe and abroad.
In 92, she started her own research and collaboration with dancers and actors on the creation of a lot
of pieces. She has been also performing for JF Duroure and Pippo Delbono. She took part to the lm
Die Klage der Kaiserin from Pina Bausch and Berlin-J rusalem and Golem from Amos Gitai. She
teaches at PARTS Brussels since the school was founded in 1995. In 2007, she creates her solo Fuga

d Hernandez
A new short-form choreography by David Hernandez and collaborators. A trio for Stanislav Dobak,
Colas Lucot & vocalist Phillipe Cap. Thirst is a short story told in movement that explores basic
instinctive human need- how does a body move when it wants or needs something, when it is driven
by something besides a thought process? The choreographic language moves from something inside
invisible force and is in uenced by an outside. We weave a story of two characters driven by their
involuntary desire, told in a language of movement.

To confront breathing with the rhythm of music, the movement impulses of a con-temporary dancer
with baroque music, to enter into a dialogue with the originators of Modern Dance. In his dance solo
O -Beat, Milan Tom ik explores a contemporary dancer s relation to rhythm, placing his inhale and
exhale in relation to the coded rhythmical structures of Baroque music and simultaneously moving
between the external in uences from the history of dance and the inner concentration of a dancer.

At the back of the stage stands a wall with a frame of intense, indirect light. A dancer moves in the black
space, in the re ection of the light frame. The choreography shows everything yet nothing, an in nite space in
the niteness. From her inner energy the performer slowly begins interacting with the external surroundings.
In HOME, Louise Vanneste, in association with plastic designer Arnaud Gerniers and the composer C dric
Dambrain, creates a unique atmosphere, physical and tangible. The performance does not represent a
narrative evolution, but a pure expression, a complete sensory experience, stripped of all psychology. The body
of the dancer evolves with the light, the music and the space. Louise Vanneste brings her body closer to
cosmic forces and a vital energy, bere of a human social context. HOME shows a form of dehumanizing, a
loss of reference, an unknown other dimension, a bare attempt to show the foundations of being.
About Louise Vanneste
Louise Vanneste had a classical ballet education. She continued her studies at P.A.R.T.S., where she graduated
in 2000. With a grant from the SPES foundation, she had a one-year training at the Trisha Brown Dance
Company. Intrigued by the confrontation of dance with other media and artists, she collaborated with video
artist St phane Broc, sound designer Marc Doutrepont, light designer Renaud Ceulemans, dancers Ayelen
Parolin and Eveline Van Bauwel,composers C dric Dambrain and Antoine Chessex, light designer Renaud
Ceulemans, plastic artist Arnaud Gerniers, and many others. Louise created her rst solo Spell! in 2003,
followed by two duets Sudden Life and Iris . In June 2008, she created her rst group choreography, Sie
Kommen. In the fall of 2010, her second solo, HOME, had its premi re. The pieces of Louise Vanneste have
toured in Belgium and abroad.

Counting each movement, which initially seemed like an obstacle I had to overcome, a er all
became a statement, a short solo and an approach to movement and performance. Resulting in ten
minute sketch, the research material opened my vision towards di erent perspectives through which
I can direct the focus of the audience to zoom into di erent places of the body where the movement
occurs. My research focused on understanding a moving body in relation to a single count. The
attempt to count each movement is highly controversial, however that factor o ers the possibilities
for re ection, giving constant reference to every action on stage. Something so abstract such as
counting can create a lot of tension, emotions and the feeling of expectancy.
My objective is to keep on performing and include the event of performance as part of developing
my research and the piece itself.
Having been o ered the residency in Danscentrumjette, at rst I experimented with a visual artist
from Berlin, Yukihiro Taguchi to go away from my approach a little bit and have something to make
comparisons to. He is busy with making/ building installations and with the technique called stop
motion animation, he rearranges photographed material which he then uses in his video installation.
We performed together in October 2010 in Berlin as part of the Lucky Trimmer Showcase, where we
decided to built an installation in relation to DISCOUNTS. The two approaches namely, counting as
isolating movements visually and photographing as capturing stillness, which is transformed by the
stop motion technique into moving sequences a er all, deal with a very similar way of directing the
attention to where the movement happens.

A struggle hidden in between the folds of a jacket
Denti is the Italian translation of teeth.
In many ancient cultures the loss of teeth is connected with the loss of a loved one, with the feeling
of jealousy, and the urgency to leave one s home country.
Denti makes a sensible journey through physical sensations and memories, a struggle between the
impossibility to leave and the wish to forget. Denti is the feeling of being trapped, the illusion to
return back, it is the sensation of falling, is the wish of receive attention, is the need to hide ourself.

and contemporary dance, Edivaldo Mozambique performed in several pieces of Faustin Linyekula
and David Zambrano. He is a permanent ensemble member of Sasha Waltz & Guests since a few
years. Last year he participated in the 50 Days with David Zambrano in Costa Rica. Ernesto will do an
instant composition, where the thought starts to construct memories of an ongoing situation.
During the trip all kinds of emotions are involved.

The trio is a ve minute dance-piece that I made for DCJ - students. The challenge for making this
piece was to create a dance in which each dancer depends on the precision of the others in terms of
musicality, intention, and spacing. By pushing up the limits of speed and changes of quality in
fractions of time we show the audience a light and playful dance in a blink of an eye.

Everything one needs in order to create a dance is available in the present moment: A body, a space,

portrait of individual consciousness.
