Compagnie 21 is the inclusive performance group of Tiuri, of which Jordy Dik is the resident choreographer. Tiuri is a place where people with disabilities are trained to become performers, and where their hidden talents can come to the surface. The work of the company is about finding humanity and poetic inspiration within human encounters. Apart from Compagnie 21, Jordy frequently engages with participants in refugee centers, schools and care homes in The Netherlands and abroad.
In this workshop, Jordy will share the Relational Choreography method he has developed together with Laura Sita van Krimpen, alongside selected Tiuri performers and musical accompaniment from Vincent Dankelman and Oene van Geel. The main idea behind the methodology shared within this workshop is that by means of call and response, every human being can be brought to dance. This process places the creative awakening of the individual performer and the collective power of the group at center stage.
