dance as intimate technology

As a dancer-choreographer, Christine is mostly dealing with space and spaciousness and how that affects bodily textures, movement qualities and performative states. Spacial thinking brought her to sound and listening as a tool to re-imagine choreographic practices. 

Her methodology is intuitive and many-headed and considering non-hierarchical strategies. Inspired by the natural world, new materialist en eco-feminist writings (such as Donna Haraway), her transdisciplinary practices evolve improvisation scores, dance, somatic bodywork techniques*, experiential anatomy, sound and listening technologies, visual arts and writing.
*Somatic approaches are sensation-based movement practices and emphasise proprioceptive experiences. (Proprioception is a physical sense of space and body positioning in space) 

Christines’ research questions how the use of technologies in sensorial choreography can contribute to a textured experience of and a closer connection with the natural world. 


Her interested lies in art forms that are celebrating, questioning or enhancing our (sensory) perceptions and differences:

Dance & the body as an intimate technology, an act of resistance on a journey of rethinking and repositioning oneself in ones’ situated direct and indirect environment. 

Dance & the body as a vehicle for sensory awareness & textured/differentiated experiences.

Dance & the body as a portal for connection with human and other than human beings.


Christine’s practice is relational, sensorial and cumulative. She is specifically fascinated by sound and listening as a container to re-imagine choreographic practises. In her practice, she is trying to find out how much performance, spaces and dance can be listened with.
Through her work & research, she researches different ways of relating with, creating and sharing performative experiences people can pause, listen and connect with, by becoming hyperaware of their environment.
