Janni van Goor lives and works in Ghent (Belgium). Since many years she has been working with children and young adults, creating performances one can best describe as ‘dance theater’: physical performances, usually without words, staged with visual flair and a sense of humor.

She likes to start from the individual possibilities and expressivity of the players, dancers, performers she works with, to activate those capacities through improvisations during the process of rehearsal, and finally to join them in the collective energy on stage. She continuously searches for organic ways of moving, relevant stylizations and a corporeal presence ‘in the moment’.
