IfHuman was born in 2010 as a collective of performers from different nationalities and artistic backgrounds (actors, dancers, directors, video artists), based in Brussels. This melting pot is the essential condition for a research flowing from the interferences of the members’ stories, choosing the vitality, the fragility and the riskiness over the form.
‘Fear and Desire‘ is the first project of the company. On stage, ten actors without any dance experience dance their life.
It is also a documentary. A video equip followed the creation process. The documentary, created and directed by Ludovica Fales, is the story of all the gestures unexpectedly appeared during the work; it’s the story of the life the company shared and how the world got in touch with its dance.
The second project by IfHuman, El Corregidor y La Molinera by M. De Falla, will be presented in February in Valencia at the Palau De La Musica Reina Sofia, directed by Cecilia Ligorio with the participation of Estrella Morente and the Valencia Symphony Orchestra.
IfHuman is now collaborating with the Dance Conservatory in Antwerp, the result of the workshop with the students will be presented in June 2013 with the title ‘All of Me‘.
