We dance to forget

We dance to forget (2007) was the breakthrough performance for Koen De Preter and toured for 6 years through 11 countries.
A woman and a man. They dance. Next to each other. With one another. Apart from each other. One upon the other. For one another. They dance together. A whole evening long.
The pop soundtrack of Belgian DJ Bobby Ewing (Discobar Galaxie / Shameboy) drives them over the dance floor. The two dance the most different styles onto his music, they tell the most different stories. Or one story. The story of a woman and a man. The story of constant alteration: alternation of interest and absent-mindedness, boredom and excitement, insanity and serenity, aversion and devotion.
We dance to forget reminds you of the moments where nothing or no-one could hold you back from dancing to your favourite song.

De Preter, Koen

Koen De Preter (1981, Bonheiden) is both choreographer and performer. In his work, he has a fascination for performers of all kinds of ages and backgrounds. He strives for the human touch instead of looking for technical perfection. The use of eclectic soundtracks are a constant in his creations. In 2016, Koen created « YoYoGi », a big participatory site-specific event in collaboration with festival Zomer van Antwerpen.

At the beginning of his career he made a number of creations under the wing of fABULEUS (Leuven), including the internationally successful «  We dance to forget » with Maria Ibarretxe.
As a dancer Koen has worked for several international companies and choreographers, including Raimund Hoghe (Brussels/Bruges), Sasha Waltz & Guests (Berlin), Fanny & Alexander (Ravenna), T.R.A.S.H. (Tilburg), Keren Levi (Groningen) and United-C (Eindhoven). He obtained the bachelor's degree in dance at the Fontys Dance Academy in Tilburg.
