A female body pregnant with Life
An artist pregnant with an Idea

my body is full
my mind is empty

A  sequence of practical gestures moved by an invisible idea
I know there is Life that moves me, the life of an idea

My body is a river
Can I keep my water clean?
Can I hear the sound of the moving water to know my direction?
Can I sense the flow …. Can I be silent enough to hear it?
Can I be a messenger?
 

Nomadic residency - Serpent walk

It was nearly a year ago that the serpent trailed as one along the banks of the rhine. It was an experience that explored the relation between body, landscape and how stories are generated within our imagination.

You can find more about this project at this address: http://www.inmotiondancetraces.nl/projects/dreambody-2/dreambody-nomadic...

It includes journals, photos and video of the experience.  We invite you to have a look

 

Dreambody Serpent

Visiting artist and collaborator Mark Verdoes

Artistic director Marisa Grande and video maker Raul Anderson  visited Wageningen-based visual artist Mark Verdoes for a whole day! Mark contributed to the first phase of the Dreambody project with an interview about his relation to the river, his atelier being at the Steenfabriek looking at the Rhine! Having met and interviewed him we have discovered a common view on artistic process ... therefore we asked him to take part to this last phase focusing on the process of making and how ideas take a form...so we spent a whole day witnessing and filming his making process...Mark and Raul literally created a whole dance, a well tuned kinaesthetic action of Mark painting and Raul witnessing with his moving camera, becoming one moving body! It has been highly inspiring to be part of Mark's making and he has been increasingly opening to our presence, including us both into his process.
