Action

Salva Sanchis & Kris Defoort

2010

At the invitation of Concertgebouw Brugge, Salva Sanchis and Kris Defoort created the improvisation performance Action. Salva and Kris first met in 2006 which led to an improvisation workshop with students of PARTS and the Conservatory of Brussels. The desire to work together persisted and the invitation of Concertgebouw was the perfect opportunity to improvise together on stage. As experienced improvisers both are convinced that improvisation does not exclude choosing material or making a structure or plan. Kris Defoort's musical language is a meeting between classical and jazz, between written out and improvised passages. Choreographer and dancer Salva Sanchis is always looking for the essence of dancing. It is not about the theory, but about the intense live experience of dancing in front of an audience.
