Instead of doing a normal artist talk at my artist in residence at the IFP in Beijing, I saw the chance to organize something different and larger, a chance to make a new experience. This resulted in me organizing a public sober performative dance event on the International women’s day: all in all, to celebrate making conscious choices.

Dancequality was an event to celebrate being aware of what we think, what we see and what we do: themes that where central for my time in China. Dancequality was a surprising and stimulating happening and an event that was both well visited and successful.

The photograph and event is based on the research I made in China during an Artist in residence in Beijing that was generously provided and supported by the Mondriaan Fund.
