I Will Wait for You

I will wait for you: the words of a  declaration of love, the beginning of a wait, the development of a distance. However, Arno Schuitemaker’s show with this title has nothing  to do with any of this. Far from creating a narrative choreography, the  Dutch choreographer has decided to move closer to a more  performative and minimalist trend, draining the dance of all unnecessary  frills and structuring a piece based on a single movement. 

Schuitemaker, who moved into contemporary  dance only after earning a degree in the field of technology, and who  has always been interested in the theory of “mirror neurons”, always  brings something profoundly scientific to his work. 

Therefore, I will wait for you,  while inspired by the feelings really experienced during a long-distance  relationship, develops an abstract language: three dancers appear  faintly in the dark, different shades of light change the perception of  their bodies and space while a courageous sound environment surrounds  viewers. Schuitemaker presents his most intimate and thoughtful  performance; a visceral experience in which the act of watching and the  audience’s expectations take on an active function.

Schuitemaker, Arno

After obtaining his Master's degree at the University of Technology Delft, Arno Schuitemaker (1976, The Netherlands) decided to change course and to study contemporary dance. Since his graduation in 2007, he created a wide variety of theatre and site-specific performances like Proxemics (2007), ZONE (2008), ANOMIA (2008), EXIT (2009), Couple (2010) and TIDE (2011). He is a guest teacher at the BAD Choreography department of Fontys School of Performing Arts and he regularly teaches workshops and classes for professional dancers. He won the Dioraphte Encouragement Award 2009, was selected for the Brabant supports Top Talent 2010 grant, and is part of the Aerowaves Priority List 2013.

Centre national de la danse, Réalisation

Since 2001, the National Center for Dance (CND) has been making recordings of its shows and educational programming and has created resources from these filmed performances (interviews, danced conferences, meetings with artists, demonstrations, major lessons, symposia specialized, thematic arrangements, etc.).
