Pieter was asked by de! Kunsthumaniora in Antwerp to create a dance performance for the annual Moving Art performance.
He created the dance work Morpho Genesis with the dance students of the 5th year.
Biologically, morphogenesis is the process that causes an organism to evolve its shape towards its based potential according to the defined "blueprint" of organism. From the Greek "morphê" and "genesis," the word literally means "generating form."
Morpho Genesis mirrors this process with a group of dancers who constantly change their form. As with plant morphogenesis, Morpho Genesis continues to produce new forms throughout its duration. On stage, the dancers are almost continuously in motion, changing the general shape of their own body and their collective form. Space is created for the quality of the individual in order to increase the potential of the group.
