Ulrika Kinn Svensson and Koen De Prete

‘Sometimes it’s there’ is an intimate performance created by two young choreographers and friends, born out of a need to join their creative forces. This atmospheric piece is a search for subtle shifts of meaning in movement, words, sound, and light. The performers play with emotions and humour, both introvert and extrovert, to create a hypnotic and warm-hearted dance performance.

Ulrika Kinn Svensson and Koen De Preter both graduated from Fontys Dance Academy in Tilburg, Holland, in 2003. As their graduation project they created the duet ‘Follow, follow’ and soon after found their way into the international dance world. Ulrika worked together with Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Chris Haring and T.R.A.S.H. Koen worked together with Raimund Hoghe, Sasha Waltz, Keren Levi and Fanny and Alexander. He has also created four of his own pieces under the banner of fABULEUS in Leuven (BE). The most recent ‘We dance to forget’ was selected by the international festival circuit.
