At the back of the stage stands a wall with a frame of intense, indirect light. A dancer moves in the black space, in the reflection of the light frame. The choreography shows everything yet nothing, an infinite space in the finiteness. From her inner energy the performer slowly begins interacting with the external surroundings.

In HOME, Louise Vanneste creates a unique atmosphere, physical and tangible. The performance does not represent a narrative evolution, but a pure expression, a complete sensory experience, stripped of all psychology. The body of the dancer evolves with the light, the music and the space. Louise Vanneste brings her body closer to cosmic forces and a vital energy, bereft of a human social context. HOME shows a form of dehumanizing, a loss of reference, an unknown other dimension, a bare attempt to show the foundations of being.


After training in classical dance, Louise Vanneste studied at P.A.R.T.S., graduating in 2000. Awarded a scholarship by the SPES Foundation, she continued her training with the Trisha Brown Company in New York. Since her return, she has appeared in Belgium and abroad and worked with artists from different disciplines, including video-maker Stéphane Broc, musicians and composers Cédric Dambrain and Antoine Chessex, dancer-choreographer Ayelen Parolin, lighting designer Renaud Ceulemans, dancer Eveline Van Bauwel and visual artists Arnaud Gerniers and Stephan Balleux. In June 2008, she staged her first group piece Sie kommen. She has since created the solo HOME (2010) and recently the trio Persona in a co-production with Charleroi Danses, L’Ancre and the CCNFC in Belfort.
