Voetvolk is a Belgian contemporary dance and performance group, founded in 2007 by dancer/choreographer Lisbeth Gruwez and composer/musician Maarten Van Cauwenberghe, who got to know each other in the laboratory of Jan Fabre.
Their work is an ongoing conversation between corporal and auditive movement: Gruwez and Van Cauwenberghe direct each other in order to achieve a symbiosis between the aural and the visual/physical.
In May 2018, Voetvolk will be presenting its first large-scale production, The Sea Within.
Voetvolk is allied to Troubleyn|Jan Fabre and the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp as ‘company-in-residence’. Other residencies are and have been the Royal Flemish Theatre, Les Brigittines, Arts Centre BUDA and STUK.
Voetvolk is also ‘artiste associé’ of Le Quartz – Scène Nationale de Brest.
Apart from Lisbeth and Maarten, the Voetvolk team consists of Arnaud Vanrafelghem (production and tour manager), Thomas Glorieux (technical director), Lucius Romeo-Fromm (assistant to the artistic director) and Daan Borloo (press and communication assistant).
Voetvolk is supported by kc NONA, DEE Sound and Light, the Flemish Community, the Flemish Community Commission and the Belgian Tax Shelter.
