me: iris van peppen

For over 18 years I've been working as a dance artist.
My hearing disabillity as a young child has influenced me greatly as an artist from which I've developed a deep sensitivity for my surrounding. In my work as a dancemaker I am able to sense the quality of space and dancers and make this visible in my choreography. My work is recognizable without emphasizing the social, political and spatial because the viewer is given the opportunity in the performance to reflect and, hence, to connect with the dance.

I work as a teacher, performer, choreographer, organiser and coach in dance. In 2005 I've founded Contemporary Dance Platform.
