Loraine Dambermont (1988) – Liège born and Brussels based (Belgium)
After graduating from Codarts and The Theaterschool – Academy of Dance and Arts in Rotterdam and Amsterdam, I developed my own body language by establishing a singular way of moving and making works. By mixing several dance techniques; from Hip Hop to Contemporary dance, focusing more deeply on popping and floor work, I like to create with an explosive energy.
I am currently busy working on my own projects: my latest solo production “Toujours de 3/4 face!” premiered in November 2021 in Brussels, where I am now based.
I am also working/used to work alongside Etienne Rochefort (Fr), The Nordic Beasts / Noora Hannula (Dk), Zahrbat / Brahim Bouchelaghem (Fr), Mute Comp. Physical theater (DK), Michèle Anne De Mey (Be), Itamar Serussi (IL), Beppie Blankert (NL),…
I won a choreographic prize in 2013 with my duet « Buy My City » at The Amsterdam 16 MINUTES OF FAME Festival White Box Edition and started with my partner and friend Noora Hannula a deeper artistic collaboration since then.
Thanks to life-changing encounters and rich artistic experiences that have been inspiring me in my relationship to dance and performance, I ended up developing a personal choreographic approach.
I really enjoy power in movement and I create restless choreographies that I like to channel through a meticulous musical structure. My work aims to experiment new choreographic languages in order to produce dynamic and captivating performances. This artistic approach wishes to encourage danced movement and highlight the beauty of the gesture by inviting the audience to live this intense experience together.
