LA VERITA dance company (BE) was founded in 2011 by Alex Kyriakoulis and Natasa Frantzi. Instead of reaching for oneness, its focus is on two choreographers oscillating with their own background, thus creating (dis) harmony and achieving a unity, while being conscious of their own individuality. Fascinated by the moving body, LA VERITA dance company is open to investigate its various languages and ways of expressing itself. Every production is a blank canvas on which the choreographers experience new ways of drawing movement.
LA VERITA’s aim is to create performances that are driven by the philosophy of approaching every choreography as a new proposition. They take shape as an interdisciplinary coming together of music, theatre and architecture, investigated through the human body.
