Drawing inspiration from the science of mirror neurons‚ which blur the boundaries between observation and action, Arno Schuitemaker’s The Fifteen Project creates an inventive and a strong physical experience that explores a complex network of relationships‚ freed from linear development in time or narrative.

For Dance Roads. Arno Schuitemaker re-worked his evening-length piece into a fifteen-minute duet for two male dancers. The dancers embrace playfulness‚ seek interfaces‚ and through this they propose the question: How do I relate to what I see?

Arno Schuitemaker was born in 1976 in The Netherlands. After obtaining his Master’s degree at the University of Technology Delft in 2002‚ Arno decided to drastically change course and to study contemporary dance. Since his graduation in 2007‚ he already created a wide variety of performances‚ and amongst them are: ProxemicsZONEEXIT and TIDE.
In 2009‚ Arno received the Dioraphte Encouragement Award for his work.
In 2010 he received the Brabant supports Top Talent grant.
