TR Herdenkt & Viert

As a choreographer with a storied career in Mexico, Cuba, the Netherlands and Curaçao, Faizah, born and raised in Curaçao, effortlessly weaves together diverse cultural influences on the dance floor, creating performances that embody tenderness, accessibility and sensitivity. Through her Creole body language, vulnerability, temperament, endless, flowing circular movements and polyrhythms naturally emerge in her contemporary rhythmic and sensitive choreographies.

In Corpus Criolla, choreographer Faizah Grootens delves deeper into the embodiment and stereotyping with which Creole dance forms are often associated, digging deep into the traditions and history of Curaçao dance forms to create a contemporary dance language that is deeply rooted in its culture. At the same time, she offers food for thought on current issues such as identity, shame culture, conventions and traditions and colonial influences, social idealism and understanding the relationship between form and content.
