• Courtney Robertson
      THE WOMAN DESTROYED (Try-out)

    • language no problem
  • In THE WOMAN DESTROYED, choreographer Courtney May Robertson looks at the complexities of submission and resistance. Audiences are invited to experience the unfolding of the performance simultaneously with Courtney, as she responds to the demands of a non-emotional entity in real time. In this climate of uncertainty and true vigilance, questions surrounding bodily autonomy and control systems come to the surface.

    Courtney (Scotland, 1992) is a performer and maker based in Rotterdam. Upon graduating in 2013, she joined Club Guy & Roni’s Poetic Disasters Club and has since worked with Jan Martens and Connor Schumacher, amongst others. Alongside working as a performer, she has created her own small-scale / DIY produced work since 2015.

    THE WOMAN DESTROYED is a significant step in her trajectory as a maker. As a trained dancer Courtney’s work starts with the body, but spans various disciplines including video, generative art and writing.

    The concept plan of this performance was awarded De Troffel in 2020 – Festival Cement’s incentive prize for young makers – and was nominated for the Roel Verniers Prijs of Het Theater Festival Belgium.
