Support six dancemakers for One Night's Dance!
One Night's Dance One Night’s Dance is Dansateliers’ project for early career dancemakers. In November and December five selected makers have the chance to develop their own artistic signature and create a short work that will be shared with an audience in December. The makers are offered studio time, coaching, workshops, exchange and shared feedback sessions in the professional surroundings of Dansateliers.
Who are the One Night's Dance makers? The selected makers for One Night’s Dance 2015 are: Franziska Menge Manel Salas Palau Joseph Simon Maria Peralta João Dinis Pinho & Julia Barrios de la Mora (duo)

Where can you see the result? You can see the results during the One Night’s Dance presentations on 4, 5, 6 and 11, 12, 13 December in Dansateliers.
Meet the makers!
Franziska Menge (1987) graduated in 2015 at the dance teachers department of the Amsterdamse Hogeschool voor de Kunsten. During One Night’s Dance she will work with basic movement principles like walking, running, turning, rolling, jumping and falling… and will try to create a work that -through its simplicity - will open up the associative world of the spectator.
Manel Salas Palau ( 1980) has been working as a freelance performer on an international scale. After 10 years of performing and contributing in different creations Manel feels the desire to give full room to the articulation of his own choreographic language. During One Night’s Dance 2015 he dives into the secrets of his own improvisations to create an artwork that speaks to the audience.
Joseph Simon (1989) graduated from Artez School of Dance in Arnhem in 2014. His wide interest led him to explore practices as gymnastics, tricking as well as some basic modern-jazz and ballet. During One Night’s Dance he focusses on the liminal space between a plié and a bounce and creates a movement excursion through the groove of house dance and music and the mathematics of ballet; purely, a dance routine with a very specific dance language.
Maria Peralta (1986) studied Choreography at the School for New Dance Development (SNDO) in Amsterdam where she graduated in 2014. During One Night’s Dance she will focus on mastering the art of juggling and create a piece based around the basic patterns and techniques of juggling using three scarves. With her work she will engage with the audience in an almost hypnotic way.
João Dinis Pinho (1994) and Julia Barrios de la Mora (1991) are currently in their final year of the Dancer/Maker BA at Artez in Arnhem. The two previously created Diluting (2014), a dilution of cultures through the exploration and exploitation of traditional folk dance. During One Night’s Dance 2015 they will bring this theme back to a personal level and create a new piece titled Deluting’s rebound. For their new piece they ask themselves: ‘ How does it feel to carry a culture?” ‘ Where does it place us? Where do we place it?’
Join! Support these makers now and see the results of their trajectory during the One Night’s Dance presentations on 4, 5, 6 and 11, 12 and 13 December in Dansateliers, Rotterdam.
