Put freedom and limitations in one space and you find the key to infinite possibilities

Laura Vanhulle and Judith Clijsters (both choreographers/dancers)  met during their dance training in the UK. Ever since they share similar ideas about movement and performance. For this workshop they use contemporary dance, choreography, yoga and body-conditioning methods as an anchor point. Through movement and play, they will guide you towards new possibilities of your physicality, your structure and your performance practice. The workshop covers aspects of dance technique, choreography, improvisation and creative skills. It can result in a short, informal sharing of the work.
Laura Vanhulle and Judith Clijsters deliver movement workshops nationally and Internationally  


The base of the workshop: Play Move Connect Share 

Play-  “Welcome to the game of creativity.

We are all looking for ways to express ourselves through play, experiment and improvisation. Without obligations and where mistakes don’t exist. Like a playground. How much experience is needed in dance or in life to express something meaningful?

Move-  “Movement is dance and dance is movement. Very Simple. Just like our constant moving breath.

Through somatic (body) work, improvisation, physical tasks, choreography and movement composition we will zoom into the functioning of our body. The ’I’ in relationship to another individual as well as to the ‘group’. By receiving and giving support we will discover many possibilities and limitations to meet our strengths and our weaknesses.

Connect- “Wired through touch

By moving together we connect with each other differently. The physical body is our largest tool to communication with, yet we emphasize importance to communicate through words. Energy and body language is a fantastic way of conversing and a way of expressing and channelling energy in a new way in relationship to others.  This is important to study.  How to pronounce, how to invite, how to say no? How to care for yourself? 

Share: “Leaving a trace

Sharing what we’ve learned, emphasises our learning curve. We work towards a sharing, where everyone has a voice or space to express themselves in this universal language. We are all connected, is the motto and through our body we discover a new way, a new layer and a new zone of sharing something unique. Its an invitation to collaborate through freedom and finding new tools softly inspired by a yoga philosophy and dance history.

I can’t hear you anymore...

A human being is stuck in the middle of a crowd. She is surrounded by other human beings who watch her fight time, fight choices, fight rhythm, fight her own critical mind.
Who is fighting? Her body is fighting. Her body is fighting her restrictive convictions. Her body is fighting our tiresome behavior and searches for new and real connections. Who wants to play? Play and risk to loosen up a little?

Humans are physical beings… where are they going? That’s the central question of Bored To Death. In a consumer culture where our minds do the work and are entertained afterwards, our bodies are abandoned and connections are getting lost.

If you only walk in the footprints of others, you won’t make any of your own

With 11 enthusiastic sweet-16-girls and a few guy’s from the sound-lab, I worked for 4 full days towards a choreography and presentation about generations.

Last april, Piazza Dell Arte took over a school in Antwerp. Together with 11 coaches from all different art forms we transformed the school into one big installation. Animation films, photo’s, dance, monumental art, monumental costumes, theatre, performance art, music and more,  all related somehow to the subject ‘footprints’. More than 100 kids worked super hard all week to present their work to their teachers, friends and family. It was a very supportive full house on Friday night!

Piazza Dell Arte is an organization that handles and breaths through 3 questions:
What if we would bring artists to schools?
What if we let them experiment with youngsters without any borders?
What if this would increase the accessibility for those youngsters to experience and get involved in different art forms outside of school?

When the other is present, we create a landscape of opportunities or an empty bubble

There is a lot of play and comfort in the knowing of an other person. It has many layers and a big and practiced repertoire of reactions, laughs, games, confrontation and support.

Where do we settle? When do we break? What is the landscape we create for each other?

Stop the bullies  –  week tegen pesten 17 tem 24 februari

’t Zal WELzijn project gathers coaches from different art forms and kids at school to make some noise about bullying, being bullied, or witnessing this painful behaviour. Rather than focussing on the hard truth, the idea is to imagine and create a playground where kids and youngsters can show who they are to the fullest without social risk. I am one of the dance coaches and will work with 2 groups from 2 different schools. Together we will prepare a small creation to share with all their other friends. We have 7 sessions to blow them away!

This project is supported by de Vlaamse Onderwijsadviesraad and managed by CANON CultuurcelIedereen Leest and Passerelle, to raise awareness on the subject of bullying.
