Erosie (working title) | ROTOR
Performance collective ROTOR is currently in residency at Veem House researching erosion in movement. In a sequence of repetitious movements a continuous dialogue between the human and its environment exists. Like a river carves and erodes the landscapes it touches and changes its course, the human leaves traces too. Repetitious movements affect its environment, and this in turn affects the way the human moves.
Join Hidde Aans-Verkade and Koen van der Heijden in Open Studio on the 1st of April as they further explore this continuous dialogue in movement between the human body and its surrounding.
Erosion (working title) will premiere in September 2021.

ROTOR is a Dutch performance collective, based in Amsterdam. The collective consists of Hidde Aans-Verkade, Koen van der Heijden and creative producer Rick Busscher.
ROTOR has a strong fascination for the body. Their work is focused on both embodied knowledge (the body as a storehouse of history) and the body as a vehicle for contacting the world in the here and now. With a background in various movement disciplines such as parkour and breakdance and a shared interest in Kung Fu, ROTOR trains and questions this physical knowledge. Repetition is a central theme in their work, which is reflected both in the dramaturgy of ROTOR’s performances and in their way of working. In this way they try to touch the audience beyond reason.
ROTOR is a House Artist of Veem House for Performance.
