A project by: Sandman
Concept & Choreography: Sabine Molenaar
Technical Concept: Gertjan Biasino
Composer: Jochem Baelus
With her company Sandman, Sabine Molenaar creates imaginative performances in which the associative logic of dreams rules. The world she creates is wonderfully unusual, but always recognizable. Sabine develops her performances from a specific state of mind. The body, in which she combines supreme mental, physical and emotional concentration, is her tool and gives her characters and associations profoundness and expressiveness. She connects the concrete and the etheric. The body is the point of departure and compassion: painfully virtuous and mercilessly personal.
Sandman was founded by Sabine Molenaar in 2012 and has it’s base in Brussels. Working cross-disciplinary with performance and film, Sandman produced four physical theatre performances: That’s it (2013), Touch me (2015), Almost Alive (2017) and also a short and adjusted version of Almost Alive is touring named A Moment (2017) and three experimental short dance films: Wish her ill (2012), That’s it (2013) and Kali (2016).
