We are Yuliya Goba and Bart Merks (Dance in Education), working together with Lisa Boer (Graphic Design), and we are the founders of the interdisciplinary collaboration named DansLAB. For our graduation we developed, long with our final theses, the performance ‘X and/or Y’.
Through an interdisciplinary search we look at the development of persona of both the group and individual. The development of persona in this performance consists out of self-image and strange image. Who am I? What do I look like to the world? This through the male-female relationships of the dancers. How masculine, feminine or gender-neutral can a dancer be and how can this influence the groupdynamics? At the same time also the dressing of the body. Does a costume add something to the body or does the body add something to the dressing?
DansLAB is inspired by the collaboration between 15 dancers, 2 choreographers, a graphic designer, 4 fashion designers and 2 musicians. From these various disciplines arise different perspectives on the persona.
