Simon Bus

Six Portraits (première)

New work by the winner of the Innovation Award Dutch Dance Days Maastricht 2022

Exploring and stretching the possibilities of his own nimble body, Simon is increasingly applying it to the bodies of fellow makers. During the Dutch Dance Days, Simon brings together 5 makers from his social media network. An international group of kindred spirits with whom he shares the focus on a multidisciplinary working method. Until now, they had almost only had digital contact. Under the title SIX PORTRAITS, they will take over spaces in the Bonnefantenmuseum for two days and set up their own workshop there. On the spot and under the eye of the public, they will work together and create new, unusual and unexpected work – at the interface of movement, image and sound.

Simon Bus (Hoensbroek 1989) was already heavily impressed by the power moves of Kujo the Crazy Water Buffalo when he was 12 years old. He was a member of the Limburg fusion crew Trashcan Heroes and was part of the (inter)national battle scene. In 2013 he graduated from the Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts & Design (Video-Visual Communication) – at the same time he continued to dance. With his inquisitive eye and hyper-flexible body, Simon stretches ideas about breakdance. As of 2021, Simon is PLAN creator under the aegis of Corpo Máquina and Parktheater. He is shaping his final PLAN year in collaboration with DansBrabant.
