Katrien studied Dance Theatre in Tilburg and Open Atelier (Sint Lucas) in Antwerp. Awareness, perception and sensation are an essential part her own and the shared artistic process. Spectators and participants are encouraged to focus on physical experience and expressive structuring in the form of participative performances. Art is used as a tool for the contact with one’s own body, with others and with factors in the environment. For Katrien this is something that everyone relates to and that everyone experiences in very different ways. A sense of collectivity and community is created, a (current) social need.
Katrien’s long journey with wpZimmer began in 2016. The first project she is creating under the auspices of wpZimmer is Imagine Moving Rocks, a game with personal space, presented by a group of members of the public. It will be premièred as part of STUKstart at STUK (Leuven) at the end of September 2017.
