ACTE3 / LEGACY / MOVE FOR EVENTS

After the huge succes last year, on general demand of the public, this great tribute band has returned to a full house in Acte3!  An even bigger crowd was convinced and had the best of time remembering and enjoying the King of Pop.

MOVE Studio’s Recital 2015: surprise with NEW movie choreos!

Tags : 

MOVE Dance Center / Recital 2015

 

Working with close friends always is a completely different experience.  And it is with pride (and lots of enjoyment) that we participated once more in the stage creation, creative support and production of the annual student recital show of MOVE Dance Center.

This time we (but most of all the teachers) faced an extra challenge: come up with completely new choreographies for new movies, no traditional dance or musical movies were allowed.  The concept received the title “MOVE Studio’s” and took place as a guided visit of the famous ‘Aalsters Movie Studio: MOVE’.

AoE assisted in the stage design, lighting design and joined the think tank for show director Filip Van Keer, a part from that we were in charge for a whole series of background movies in the movie themes to match the choreographies on the multi screen setup.

The challenge was not only accepted but the bar was even raised by taking less obvious movies to create choreographies for, which resulted in very surprising new creations!

Discover Red Riding Hood, 12 Years A Slave, Kill Bill, Catch Me If You Can, The Secret Garden… all except the movies that were to be expected: Leslie Vermeulen even dared a challenging theme like Schindlers’ List and translated it into a breath taking piece that kept the audience in emotional shivers.

A job super achieved by the MOVE teachers.

SUPPORT BY ELITE OF EVENT PROFESSIONALS

Tags : 

SPECIAL OLYMPICS /

Big support by elite of Belgian Event professionals

A point that in my opinion has gotten to little attention from our Belgian professional event media: this event was largely supported by an impressive number of volunteers, approximately 6000p, but ALSO by a large number of Belgian event professionals both from the freelance field as from within the agencies.

Some agencies came up with fund raisers, others convinced their clients with every new briefing to sponsor an athlete.  Still others sent us experienced staff to reinforce the coordination team.  Like one said after the event: “with this team NO WORRIES!”.

Interesting detail, no one of all these people used the event for personal advertising, to aim for new business targets or have any personal benefit.  They all joined the team because they supported the cause!  Thank you guys, it was an privilege to have the support of such an elite team of experts!

(only some of the professionals in the pictures, there were a lot more 🙂

Actor coaching: the development of stage characters

Tags : 

The last year, the specific missions in our projects required a very specific new skill to be developed.

Several projects we were working on had a direct need for the coaching of very talented people into the creation of a specific character for the show wer were developing. AoE assisted in trying to find the character written in the script deep inside the actor.  The actors we needed to coach were not real actors, but dancers and stage performers.  And combining our knowledge of story writing, with speaker coaching (for conferences etc.) and even more our show direction experience, made it into a perfect mixture to assist these already very talented and creative people in doing an even better job on stage!

A very rewarding mission as virtually you are with them on stage as they ‘transform’ into the character. 2 very fine examples can be found in Christ’OF during his MY VISION theatre show and Lizzy De Lobel during the “Circus, Cirkus” dance recital by MOVE. Although Christ’OF speaker perfect dutch for a native French speaking Belgian, he needed some coaching to make his lines sound natural and fluent, even for a native Dutch speaking audience.

We stept away from the theatrical written monologues and went into a very accessible social dutch, allowing everyone in the audience to easily connect. Lizzy on the other hand, has been dancing for years and is a member of the professional dance squad “The Groovies”.  She knows about ‘living the part” and acting emotions on stage.  But the jump towards the acting (without dance) of a mime clown leading character took het out of her comfort zone.  Together we discover Clown Lozzy inside her talents.
