Contemporary Mime (and specifically in Flanders). Report of a quest. De Beweeging, 1995. My first design for Antwerp’s experimental dance and theatre festival.
De Beweeging, Antwerp
Festival and theatre space for dance, mime and theatre
I began working for De Beweeging (old spelling of the Dutch-Flemish word for “movement”) in 1995, and continued for about four years. Located in Antwerp, they were one of Flanders’ prominent centres of experimental physical theatre. I had known De Beweeging’s director Herbert Reymer in the aftermath of my activities as a theatre and dance critic in the Netherlands. Herbert decided to invite Dorp & Dal (me and partner Catherine Dal) as designers and editors. We made posters, yearly programme newspapers, booklets, and a website.
