Short description of your idea

As if she had collapsed from the sky. We see a creature motionless on the ground, under the mucus and with just enough power to breathe. The long legs stretched out, the knees bony. The face hidden under the arms, anonymous, alone. To survive, an apparently impossible challenge lies in the prospect: Getting up.

How do you get up if you are thrown into life so hard? How do you proceed if life attacks you bluntly? How do you stand up if you don't know how to get your body together?

Re:Born is the first part of the framework Body of Art; a long-term project by dance maker Annemijn Rijk in which she explores what our bodies call tell us about what it means to be human.

What drives your enthusiasm the most?

 My drive in creating work is the believe that through motion, movement and energy, we can share the stories that hide in our bodies. I believe that everything we experience is stored in our body somehow, and with the right tweaks and exercises, we can cultivate our bodies to share those stories, those truisms.

I believe that the most personal experiences are also the most universal experiences. Everything we feel, we don’t feel alone. By being truly honest and transparant, our bodies can share those personal yet universal feelings and we can take an audience into our journey.

We can give hope to the people. And hope is what inspires people to change, to not look the other way, to go for it. Hope can create a ripple of silent rebellion, and I believe that’s what we need right now.

Do you have any inspirational words that motivates, pushes or supports your creativity?

So many!  I often use quotes to start or introduce my work with to an audience. As a good quote can wrap a whole performance in it. The most inspiring people to me are woman who work in art or are connected to life in a very true way. Think of Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Esther Perel, Griet Op de Beeck or Lena Dunham. And yes, they are mostly feminist woman.

“Love rests on two pillars: surrender and autonomy.

Our need for togetherness exists alongside our need for separateness.” 

- Esther Perel

"It’s my job to move people, not to impress people and I constantly have to remind myself of that"

- Phoebe Waller-Bridge

“Artists can use their wounds to start something great from it.

Through the detour of fiction, it can inspire people to continue their lives in a different way.”

- Griet Op de Beeck
