Reference book 2019

© William van der Voort

Everyone knows the story of their own body. What it has felt, seen, would like to forget or will remember forever. Body stories are deeply personal testimonies of someone’s life. If we all sat down more often to tell each other about ours, we would get to know and maybe understand each other much better too. But we don’t do this easily. It needs organization. And isn’t that precisely what choreographers spend their time doing? With his article I am my body (2003), in which dramatist Guy Cools tells us the story of his life through physical memories, he gave us the decisive nudge to choose this theme, which can be relevant to each of us in a very personal way, for the ICW 2019.
