SOLID WATER
FLUID ROCK

dance technique

Pieter is developing a contemporary dance technique, solid water / fluid rock, where high energy and physicality come face to face with performativity and statework.

The technique is inspired by the Bartenieff Fundamentals, with a strong focus on the Head-Tail and Upper-Lower patterns. 

Rooted in floorwork solid water / fluid rock aims to bring those ideas and concepts to the vertical, standing plane.

 

To give the dancer autonomy, options and ownership of the own body and creative mind. 

On the other hand the practice is inspired by pop culture icons as Beyonce, David Bowie and RuPaul.
