The State of Dutch Dance

 During the last edition of the Nederlandse Dansdagen, the State of Dutch Dance was pronounced by Lisa Reinheimer.

Every year during the Nederlandse Dansdagen, the debate about the State of Dutch Dance takes place. A discussion with various people, active within the dance sector, about subjects that are relevant within the field. This eventful year offers enough food for discussion. In addition to her own vision, Lisa Reinheimer also showed those of other people.

Foreword Lisa Reinheimer

"Because the festival is entirely digital and offers so much room for experimentation, it gave me an opening to also express the State in a different form. And actually, this form is closer to me than a speech for an large live audience."

Since the beginning of this year, Lisa Reinheimer has been supporting transverse dance makers at DansBrabant as coordinator. Before that, she wrote and taught as a dance critic about trends in the field. From 2014-2020 she was part of Domein voor Kunstkritiek, where she organized workshops and masterclasses at home and abroad to renew dance criticism.
She studied dance sciences in Utrecht and Berlin. Lisa loves gardens, indie games and Bretzels.

The result is a movie. For those who prefer to read, the text is also available in as an PDF-file.
