Vincent Riebeek – The Netherlands 12/12/1992
Adress: Sonnenallee 97
Vincent Riebeek (born in The Netherlands, 1988) started dancing hip-hop and street dance in his pre-teens. While finishing his high school education he went to the pre-education dance program at the AHK Amsterdam where he graduated from the School for New Dance Development in 2013. The first work he presented internationally was made in collaboration with Florentina Holzinger during their studies and is touring international stages since 2010. After their debut ‘Kein Applaus fur Scheisse’ the duo went on to make two more performances called ‘Sprit’ (2012) and ‘Wellness’ (2013) and are currently toured and handled by Campo (Ghent). ‘Dust’ (2011), in collaboration with Michele Rizzo, ‘The show show’ in collaboration with Ligia Lewis and ‘Come Clean’ a solo performed by himself where all presented both in gallery spaces and theatres in Europe and abroad (New Zealand, Brazil).
His work had been supported by a.o. Campo Ghent (BE) Beursschouwburg Brussels (BE) Frascati Amsterdam (NL) Brut Vienna (AT) PACT Zolverrein (DE) Impulstanz Vienna (AT) Workspace Brussels (BE) Mondriaan Stichting (NL) nona Mechelen (BE) Sophiensaele Berlin (DE) FFT Dusseldorf (DE) Pumpenhaus Munster (DE) Gesnerallee Zurich (CH) Mousonturm Frankfurt (DE) Spring Utrecht (NL) Spielart Festival Munich (DE).
Vincent’s work is founded on a sense of community and friendship to trigger each other in changing the way to deal with life and reality as much as it comes to changing the way to deal with art and performance. To be triggered, to be activated, to be alive, to be happy, to be free. To always fight injustice, always work hard, never give up. To constantly see all possibilities around you and different ways to cope with them. To arrive to a complexity that is beyond, and even further. To be idealistic without being dogmatic, to understand that everything is changing and therefor you can’t rely on anything accept for that big swelling lump inside your chest, bravely working, never stopping until the day it does and moves on to being something else. Violence. To embrace all, without fear, which is useless. To open the gates of the heart and surrender to the fear of dying. Love. When you don’t have it, I will take it from you, when you have it, I will give it to you. Be willing and able. Be willing and able. Be willing and able.
