ARTIST: Simon Bus
COUNTRY: The Netherlands 🇳🇱
For Simon, breakdance is synonymous with uniqueness and originality. As a b-boy, he develops his own movement language from which being a maker is only a small step. Exploring the extreme possibilities of his own body, he increasingly investigates other bodies. The starting point for his work is a mix of fascinations for the discomfort of everyday life and the resilience and expressiveness of the body. The game between having control and losing control is a recurring element in this. Besides breakdance as the ultimate source of inspiration, he finds points of departure in Butoh and in the work of Albert Camus, Egon Schiele, Jim Jarmusch and David Lynch. Like Shane Boers, Simon feels inspired in his makership by Instinctive Performance, the specific approach to movement with which Guilherme Miotto stimulates people to open the body, activate the personal layers of physical knowledge and encourage dancers to dialogue with their technique. instead of just executing it.
