Voor Ons/Pour Nous Ula Sickle/kleinVerhaal
Canadian-Polish choreographer and performer Ula Sickle lives and works in Brussels. She makes films, installations, live performances. Last year, she created the dance performance Voor ons in collaboration with the social-artistic organisation kleinVerhaal bij de Grote Post in Ostend. For that project, she worked with five youngsters from Ostend from different backgrounds, but all of them with a love for dance and music.
These youngsters surf, stream, rip to their heart’s content but still manage to create an individual and original performance with all of that material. Voor ons turns the terms ‘globally and locally’ and ‘mass production and handmade’ inside out. Today, this dance performance is reworked with a mix of the original cast and Brussels youngsters, Voor Ons / Pour Nous.
