Secrets Revealed / Conny Janssen Danst

In this years program of the Dutch Dance Festival (Nederlandse Dansdagen), various choreographers opened their studio doors for the public.
During the making of a work, dancers sweat behind closed doors, rehearsals are not accessible to the public and they are often surrounded by an air of mystery. Unpolished diamonds to be considered without lighting, sound and costume. This was an unique chance to see new work in the making and to meet dancers and choreographers.

I attended 'HOW LONG IS NOW' by Conny Janssen Danst where we meet ten dancers who have built a refuge for themselves in the middle of a transient and harsh world. De Machinefabriek in Vlissingen (premiere August 2012) and the historic tram depot in Rotterdam (premiere November 2012) caught Conny Janssen’s eye for her latest site-specific project.
