Artist in residence: Körper

In Körper, Leon and Nanna move in between the boundries of gender and identity

‘In Körper binarity dissolves, we are both mother and child, at the same time, man and woman, person and audience, dominant and submissive. We really want the audience to feel like a part of the universe that we create.’

NEON is a driven young collective with a strong own voice. The collective was established in 2015 during the study dance and choreography of Leon and Nanna at the ArtEZ School of the Arts. NEON only just exists but has already been visible and been involved in; Moving Futures, One Nights Dance, DinO # 2, The Debut, Its Amsterdam, Ubåden (DK) and De Nieuwe Oost.

Choreography & performance: NEON | Nanna Hanfgarn Jensen & Leon Emil Franzke

Part of the artist in residence program

Körper is part of the SHIFFT artist in residence program, in which (young) makers get the chance to research, show and / or produce new work. These makers have the opportunity to test their work against audiences through open studios or public presentations. For each residence, the format is tailor-made to help the creators as best as possible in their artistic search.

For Körper, SHIFFT organizes presentations at Monsteren in Theater Kikker, an open studio in collaboration with Utrecht University and meetings for the makers with the professional field.

Made possible by Municipality of Utrecht, Janivo Foundation, K.F. Hein Fonds and Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds Utrecht.
