DansBrabant: MOTUS SONUS

Interdisciplinary project @ De Pont museum

On 28th of September, DansBrabant will present MOTUS SONUS, an interdisciplinary experimental project focusing on movement and sound. Location: the beautiful Tilburg-based De Pont museum.

In this collaboration, five international artists (Simon Bus, Alesya Dobysh, Max Frimout, NSDOS and Seungwoo Park) investigate the musicality of movement and the physicality of sound, delving into the interplay between dance and music.
The performance consists of a series of improvised sketches, navigating the interdependence of sound, movement and space. Present in De Pont’s venue, they react to the works of Thomas Schütte who is currently exhibiting at the museum.

Simon Bus
Simon Bus (1989) is a performer and choreographer based in The Hague. He fell in love with the art of breakdancing in 2001, in 2013 he graduated from the Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts & Design. With his inquisitive eye and hyper-flexible body, Simon stretches ideas about breakdance. He is fascinated by the discomfort of everyday life turning dance forms inside out with sharp wit and brutality.

Alesya Dobysh
Alesya Dobysh (1989) is a Dutch-based dancer, choreographer, and educator. She began her career in the street and club dance scene, where she cultivated a love for House dance. In her practice she experiments with fusing subcultures and unconventional forms of performance, theater, visual arts, and sound.

Max Frimout
Max Frimout (1999, Nuenen) creates live electronic music using modular synthesizers and computer programs. His performances are focused on exploring the relationship between movement and sound from a physical perspective. Recently Max graduated from the Institute for Sonology at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague.

NSDOS aka Kirikoo Des (1984) is a multidisciplinary artist, techno musician and choreography researcher born in Paris. After following studies at the Académie International de la Danse his main interest is finding the natural patterns of movement and transferring them into the context of physical movement and sound.

Seungwoo Park
Seungwoo Park (1997) was born in South Korea. He is a performance artist, dancer, painter, sculptor, and filmmaker who explores the intricate interplay between reality and unreality through unconscious movement. In his performances he challenges physical boundaries and tries to transcend the constraints of gravity.
