Tremor and more
In October 2016, Herman Diephuis meets Jorge Ferreira, a young Brazilian dancer, during a workshop in Brasilia. For this solo, Herman Diephuis wants to explore Jorge’s capacity of transformation, of metamorphism. He defines Tremor and more as a theatrical abstraction. Using shaking and trembling as a movement principle, repetition and time span as a condition, the piece searches to unable different presences and states to arise, to approach moments of stillness like zooms or close-ups. These moments only appear to erase again as if absorbed by the rhythm and the energy of this dance ritual close to trance.

Herman Diephuis was born in 1962 in Amsterdam and lives in Paris.
He has worked as a performer for several years with numerous choreographers: Régine Chopinot, Mathilde Monnier, Jean-François Duroure, Philippe Decouflé, François Verret, Jérôme Bel, Xavier Le Roy and Alain Buffard.
In 2002, he choreographed “La C et la F de la F" as part of the project, Les Fables à la Fontaine.
He created his company, the non-profit organisation ONNO, in 2004, in order to produce his own creations and projects. In 2017 he co-created a trio choreography "Goin’down" with Naomi Fall.
At the same time, he develops creative projects with amateurs (whether or not they have an artistic background), such as "Brainstorming (2012), “La Liberté Guidant Romain Rolland" (2011), "Hors Pair" (2008) and “La Cène manquante" (2006), and site-specific projects, including in museums, such as "Vue sur Parc" in September 2014 and "Impressions" in May 2013.
He has also turned his attention as an artistic assistant or collaborator to different artists, including Mathilde Monnier, Raphaëlle Delaunay, Maud le Pladec, Romual Kabore, Teilo Troncy and the Norwegian director Théa Stabell.
He was dance expert at the DRAC in Île-de-France from 2010 to 2012.
With ONNO, he is in residence and associated artist in several cultural structures: at Le Manège, national dance theatre in Reims (2007-2010), in Woodside, California (USA) – Djerassi Resident Artists Program (2011), at the Théâtre Louis Aragon, the subsidised dance theatre in Tremblay-en-France (2010, 2012, 2015 and 2016).
