is a collective consisting of five young dance artists. As classmates at the Amsterdam School of the Arts we have been working together on different projects and realized that we share many artistic and personal views. In our fourth and final year we founded the collective Chronos
and got support from Dansmakers Amsterdam
to make our first steps as independent artists. We created the side programme for the Moving Futures Festival
in 2015 and performed our first short piece 'MoreLess
' in the salon of the Stadsschouwburg in Amsterdam. After we all graduated in 2016 we decided to continue these collaborations and keep developing our own vision.
We make dance pieces that are physical, theatrical and poetic. The body is our instrument for expression, but our aim is to transmit a topic, a concept, a feeling or a message. We like to work with subjects that everyone can relate to. It should leave an aftertaste and reach the unconscious understanding of the audience. We stand for making pieces that are critical towards society and that enlarge aspects of our community that we wish were more present.
