Lisa Vereertbrugghen is a choreographer and performance artist. Before turning to dance she earned an MA in History from the University of Leuven specialising in the history of ideas. After a year in Berlin to study dance, she moved to Amsterdam for choreography studies at the School for New Dance Development (SNDO). Vereertbrugghen’s work is situated in the zone in between choreography and visual art and is shown in theatres, galleries as well as other places. On the most abstract level her work deals with the tension between sign and meaning. More concretely she is interested in language, identity, representation and image, while questioning how the different elements and (sensorial) layers within a work can feed one another. Vereertbrugghen’s collaborators are her close friends Marta Zió?ek, Marina Colomina, Simon Asencio, Min Oh and Tine Grgurevic (a.k.a. BOWRAIN). Apart from creating her own pieces Vereertbrugghen has performed in projects created by various choreographers, including Deborah Hay, Benoît Lachambre, Ann Liv Young, and visual artists, including Min Oh and Lot Meijers. In 2013 she received the danceWEB Scholarship at ImPulsTanz festival in Vienna and in the same year her piece Eins Zwo was selected for the International Theatre School Festival ITs. Currently Vereertbrugghen is associate artist at Het Veem Theater; an Amsterdam based international co-production platform for contemporary performing arts.
During her residency Lisa Vereertbrugghen worked on The Performance Formerly Known as Performance or Camouflaging Kelly that premiered at Het Veem Theater in November 2014.
