Josephine van Rheenen

Dancer

Josephine van Rheenen studied Dance Education at the Theater School in Amsterdam and started as a dancer with youth dance company De Dansers immediately after her studies.

After being on stage for 5 years with, among others, the companies De Dansers, Vloeistof and Breekgoed, she started in 2014 together with Guy Corneille, Wies Merkx as artistic leader of De Dansers. Since then she has made her own work for De Dansers for both children and young people. The Dancers call their dance performances 'dance concerts': organic gatherings of modern dance and live music. As a choreographer, she strives for the human in dance, and strives for an intuitive dance language that starts from simple instincts. Openness, surrender, interaction are key words in her work.
