ArtEz Academy of Theatre and Dance

Experience Jean Abreu's work, In the attempt of something - a work created with artists from the Bachelor of Dance programme at ArtEz.

Jean Abreu joins choreographers Emio Greco and Robin Nimanong in creating a new dance work, In the attempt of Something for the final year students in Bachelor in Dance at ArtEz in Arnhem, Holland

Imagine a world in which we can understand differences without separation.

In the attempt of something has evolved from a desire to reconcile and understand a space where nothing makes sense.

This work is for whoever you are.
