The interest in creating projects, performances, artworks that involve more than one visual art discipline is a current “trend” and need. To the spectator is not only offered something that has to be seen, heard or read, but what the arts want to offer is a complete 360 degrees sensorial experience.
Common Knowledge in cooperation with the Nederlandse Dansdagen kicks off the new cultural year with a dynamic panel discussion about
“How feedback from a different art discipline can stimulate a shared learning experience?”.
We invited interesting speakers working on different fields, who, in their own creations, are influenced by a variety of art disciplines.
We are very happy to present the panelists:
Valentijn Byvanck, director of Marres.
Suze Milius founder of House Crying Yellow Tears
Breg Horemas, belgian architect and founder of TAAT
Dario Tortorelli, choreographer/visual-artist who created DiVEinD
The debate is moderated by Peggy Olislaegers Director of Nederlandse Dansdagen.
The panel discussion will be surrounded by a friendly, informal atmosphere were the audience is more than welcome to share their own knowledge
So feel free to bring in your experience, curiosity and smile, to make this debate a shared learning experience for everyone!
The evening starts at 6 pm at De Brandweer, Maastricht
The guest speakers will start sharing their knowledge at 6.15 sharp.

Why these speakers?
We invited Valentijn Byvanck who transformed Marres into a resort with the Winter anti depression show and with the Upcoming exhibition of Levi van Veluw: The Relativity of Matter, The Maastricht House of Contemporary art is going to present a complete new sensorial experience.
Suze Milius, studied directing at the Maastricht Theatre Academy. Here she started to develop a very visual and physical theatre language, which always focuses on human behaviour.
This year she created the theatre performance Exhibit!
Five performers explore the possibilities of the contemporary gallery space. As the tourist, the connoisseur, the museum guard and the artist take shape, their interest will shift from the space and its exposed artworks towards each other.
With a minimum of language Suze Milius creates colourful worlds that are full of estrangement, beauty and humour. In her new performance the world of contemporary art meets the world of ‘people-watching’. By uniting the rules of the white space with those of the black-box she transforms the way we look.
During their successful cooperation for KHOR I (a DIYtheatre installation for the Worldexpo Floriade 2012) Dutch theatre maker Gert-Jan Stam and Belgian architect Breg Horemans discovered how their respective disciplines could challenge and enrich each other. They founded TAAT, a collective operating on the cutting edge of theatre, architecture, visual art and design. Taking the complex relationship between theatre and architecture as a starting point TAAT focuses on developing ‘architectural dramaturgy’: architectural settings that allow for a theatrical performer-spectator interaction.
In his work Dario is in a constant search to develop his perfect image, a character called ROMEO HEART. As it is his desire to become this character, it is something never to be achieved. It is the leading of the self, physically and mentally, towards a direction in space and time.
In 2014 he creates HARY +++++ (Premiere 4th October 2014, Dutch DanceDays Festival in Maastricht NL). Five bodies as slow-motioned moving sculptures. The 65+ year-old performers are visually tuned together to gradually separates and become five individual cores. Timing is defined by the tension of the movement. Their bodies are constantly turning around themselves for infinity.
Since 2010, she is the artistic and general director of the Dutch Dance Festival, giving a state of the art of the Dutch dance each year. She did initiate the European project Act Your Age (2011-2014) and was one of the leading mentors of the European project Performing Gender (2013-2015).
Working as a dance dramaturge in Europe, she provides artistic and strategic advice for both choreographers and institutes in the performing arts, working for, amongst others, Ugo Dehaes/Belgium and Alessandro Sciarroni/Italy. Recently Peggy Olislaegers had been appointed as artistic associate of Rambert, Britain’s national dance company/London.
