me: iris van peppen
For over 18 years I've been working as a dance artist in the field of instant composition and contemporary dance.
Due to my hearing disabillity as a young child I've developed a deep sensitivity for my surrounding. With this experience I am able to dive immediately to the core of the dance. In my work as a dancemaker I am able to sense the quality of space and dancers and make this visible in my choreography. My work is recognizable without emphasizing the social, political and spatial because the viewer is given the opportunity in the performance to reflect and, hence, to connect with the dance.
I work as a teacher, performer, choreographer, organiser and coach in dance. In 2005 I've founded Contemporary Dance Platform. Without distinction I work with non-professional dancers, professional (dance) artists and mothers with their babies, to name a few.
