De Grote Belgische Dansvitrine

Fanny Vandesande & Vania D’Angelo


In a deserted space, two beings ritualize what there’s left of time. Pulled out of banality, the only access they have to memory is through movement.

Following their work together on the sculptural location-based production Ant and…, Fanny Vandesande and Vania D’Angelo have teamed up again for KOPP, in which they ritualize habits fueled by the (attempted) connection to each other and their surroundings. This performance is as a result of the initial research phase.

Fanny and Vania studied dance at SEAD in Austria at the same time. Fanny at SEAD and Vania at the Anton Bruckner Privatuniversität, but they only crossed paths afterwards in Belgium. Things really clicked between them, and they decided to work together as dancers, artistic coaches and makers. After Ant and.., a location-based project that played at various arts festival, they embarked upon new research: KOPP.
