Stanley Ollivier

residency, NWNM

Brussels based artist Stanley Ollivier looks into alternative modes of being, dancing and existing together while questioning notions of normativity and rigidity. His choreographic tools work with dance as a medium for creating shifty spaces of ambivalence and fantasy, swinging between fragments and fullness deconstruction and construction, optimism and doubt.  Some of the leading interest in his work at the moment are discovering new physical narratives and opening for a conscious innocence while diving into practice of the crushing, joyful and persistent body.

After the previous performance work ’The Mirror Stand’ and the duet ‘PARADE’, Stanley is developing a new upcoming project (2025). During his residency, he will research on the interrelations between the intimate, the body and on the creation of a guarded, safe space.
