Jack Timmermans presents his ideas about performing for and with children. He embraces the idea that the audience, especially children, cannot really see what the choreograph intended, but their interpretation is more vital then the original intention. De Stilte works with these interpretations and so the dance pieces evolve with the audience as co-creator.

Here we will see dancers Wika Czakon and Alex Havady-Nagy. They will perform without and with music to give a certain impression of how music can also shape interpretation.

De Stilte (the Silence) is a professional dancing crew which is specialized in productions for children. Jack Timmermans is the artistic leader of de Stilte.
