It's going to get worse and worse and worse, my friendWorld Series Festival / Tapei (TW)
Voetvolk is a dance/performance group founded around dancer/choreographer Lisbeth Gruwez and composer/musician Maarten Van Cauwenberghe. Since its foundation in 2007, it has developed its activities as an international contemporary dance and performance company. Lisbeth Gruwez and Maarten Van Cauwenberghe are ‘Artists-in-Residence’ in the Troubleyn /Laboratorium of Jan Fabre.
Dancing as a method is no longer sufficiant as the sole ingredient of a relevant creation. Contemporary dance cannot be separated anymore from the realm of performance. It 's our belief that to achieve what needs to be said one has to allow all aspects of physicality into the equation.
Until now Voetvolk produced 5 performances: Forever Overhead (2007), Birth of Prey (2008), HeroNeroZero (2010), L'origine (2011) and It's going to get worse and worse and worse, my friend (2012). Voetvolk is currently working on their new creation AH HA which will première at the Rencontres Internationales Chorégraphiques de Seine-Saint-Denis in june 2014.
The following people and organisations are currently collaborating with Voetvolk:
Bart Meuleman (artistic advisor), Harry Cole (lightdesigner), Veronique Branquinho (styling, costumes), Caroline Mathieu (lightdesign), Joris Duytschaever (translations), Kris Kenis (production), Dave Schroyen (drummer), Jan Stoop (soundtechnician), Laurence Konyk (lighttechnician), Key Performance (diffusion), Jan Fabre | Troubleyn (residency), KC Nona (Office), AndWhatBeside(s)Death (coproduction) and KVS (coproduction).
Voetvolk vzw is supported by the Provincie West-Vlaanderen, Provincie Antwerpen and the Vlaamse Gemeenschap.
