New Adventures: Stigsdatter & Zavala


Part two: Radio - Love Matches

Research by Residents Sigrid Stigsdatter Mathiassen & Andrea Zavala Folache 

Sigrid and Andrea will bring on stage right away a moment, a moment in a moment, distraction, confusion and punk where the action is the concept.

'' We bring on right away a moment where the action is the meaning, it starts already fully like a punk concert. The what is about the how. Something about energy (personal energy) and not giving a fuck. Lights bodies and music are autonomous. Is it anti-capitalistic? It starts how it wants until they feel ready.''



About Part one: Playlist Love Matches

This is the first stage of a longer process that continues as part of a residency in Dansmakers. We continue the work in January and will have a second presentation in beginning of February. It means a lot to us that we can already share our space and ideas with you this weekend and we are happy to have all of your input at this moment in time, particularly. 

Yours truly Sigrid and Andrea

Andrea Zavala Folache (1987, SP) is a choreographer and Visual artist. She recently graduated from the SNDO (School for New Dance Development – AHK). Her choreographic work arises in the gap in which these disciplines intersect and the body can manifest itself as an artistic and critical device.


Sigrid Stigsdatter Mathiassen (1990, DM) is a choreographer, performer and vocalist. She completed her studies at the SNDO (School for New Dance Development – AHK). Sigrid uses words and movement as tools to blur the lines between reality and imagination.Concept & Performance Andrea Zavala, Sigrid Stigsdatter Music Juliet Aaltonen Costumes Eduardo León

Part of NEW ADVENTURES 2017 - 2018

During a four week period, studio and theatre are in use by emerging artists in residence who are stepping in a new adventure. In that period, Dansmakers Amsterdam is a laboratory for innovation in dance and performance art.


Out of all applications, each year four performance artists and choreographers are selected with their research project for a residency period. They are challenged to return to the core of their artistic practice. Ideas are further explored and deepened and there is space for experimentation and reflection. The period ends with a short public performance, in which the makers connect with the audience and provide context to work.



The selected artists 17/18 are Riccardo Guratti, Sigrid Stigsdatter Mathiassen / Andrea Zavala Folache & Keren Rosenberg / Charlie Prince





From 11 November  to 9 December Riccardo Guratti, Sigrid Stigsdatter Mathiassen /Andrea Zavala Folache are at work in the studios with a public presentation on 9 and 10 December. 


From 2 January 2018 on, Sigrid Stigsdatter Mathiassen/Andrea Zavala Folache & Keren Rosenberg/Charlie Prince will be Residents, with a presentation on 3 & 4 February.
