Choreographer and circus-maker Piet van Dycke receives the prize for the duet ON POINT (2020) that he made with support from Project PLAN talent development in Brabant. “Piet van Dycke puts contemporary circus and dance together. This makes for playful performances that stand out through the original use of space, objects and bodies. He tackles his themes through the interaction between movement and acrobatics, creating images that can be energetically made into ever-changing folds,’ the jury said.
With the annual BNG Bank Dance Prize, the BNG Culture Fund aims to stimulate young Dutch talent in the realisation of their productions and to offer talented choreographers an important step forward in their careers. DansClick 23, produced by Korzo, will premiere on the 5th of November in Groningen and will then tour around the Netherlands.
