Bij Human Encounters programmeren we korte avontuurlijke dansperformances van talentvolle jonge makers, ervaren makers en onafhankelijk artiesten en gezelschappen! In de vierde editie van Human Encounters staat er weer een double bill op de vloer met twee bijzondere performances:

Neptune – Lois Alexander

Lois Alexander ondervraagt in Neptune het vermogen van de natuur en de mens om te transmuteren in vorm, uiterlijk, of van natuur. In februari gaat haar voorstelling in première bij Dansmakers Amsterdam.

Neptune is focused on the transformational qualities of water. Water can occur in three states – ice, liquid, or vapor – it is always a subject to change. In the form of a dance installation, it questions the ability of nature and people to alter in form, appearance, or nature. Neptune is a collaboration with scenographer Nina Kay.

Lois Alexander

Lois Alexander (United States, 1991) is a dancer and choreographer living in Amsterdam. Lois graduated from The Juilliard School with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance in 2014. Lois has worked with choreographers and directors: Stijn Celis, Christoph Winkler, Romeo Castellucci, Susanne Linke, and Zufit Simon.

With her choreographies, Lois is inspired by natural processes and events. Working with time, space, change and transformation, Lois is curious how to give new dimensions to her experiences. 

In 2018 Lois made her first solo, Fading Fire, which premiered in Dansmakers Amsterdam and went on to tour the Netherlands with the Moving Futures Festival 2019.

Her second solo, Neptune, is a collaboration with scenographer Nina Kay. It started its process during the New Adventures Residency in 2019 and will be expanded during her 3 Package Deal development year with support from Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunst and in co-production with Dansmakers Amsterdam. Lois is also a certified Polestar Pilates trainer.

Trust project - take number 1 – Dorit Weintal

How do we walk amidst the labyrinth of life? 

Inspired by the poetry ' the path of paradox',   'Trust project - take number 1' explores the above as a dance theater Solo designed as a concert; I will be utilizing only a loop machine to create the score with its manipulation via live composition. 

'Trust project - take number 1' is the first presentation of a series of presentations that will be developed through a year trajectory project, titled TRUST. 

Each ' take' will be reflected upon and shared with via TRUST TRAJECTORY BLOG. (
