Collective 2Deform.

Collective 2Deform is formed by Danielle Huyghe and Nathalie Vermeiren, two Dancer/makers soon to be graduated from the ArtEZ university of the arts. Their collective was formed through their mutual interest for the alienation of a human body, upon which they did an individual artistic research.

For their new creation, they’re working on the idea of how alienation can be a result of a repetitive, structured sequence of movements, inspired by the aggression and movement language of boxing. Slowly degrading into an isolation of the individual and his/hers’ surrounding, causing this individual to become a completely alienated body on stage.

Both of us are researching the term alienation (started in ArtEZ 2018). We took this research and development into our new project. Detached Seperation.

About us:

Nathalie Vermeiren.

Nathalie is working with the term alienation in the human body and how the perception of a body can become alienated for a spectator, through factors as emptiness and the overall atmosphere.

Nathalie Vermeiren (1996, Belgium) started dancing ballet at the age of eight years old at Dansstudio Arabesque in Antwerp, Belgium. Soon she discovered that her preference lays in the contemporary Jazz and contemporary/ Floorwork direction. She trained her capacities as a dancer beside school, and decided when graduating from secondary school (2015) to focus on dancing as a profession. Which lead her to Bologna, Italy where she trained for eight months in the professional training programme ‘Dances Start Up VI’ under artistic guidance of Brigel Gjoka and Mattia Gandini. After her training in Italy she was accepted for the Bachelor Dancer/Maker at ArtEZ, Arnhem, Netherlands, where she is currently in fourth year working as an intern in the professional field.
