Classes and workshops

Classes coming up!

Contemporary dance for people with some dance experience:

15th of October until the 1st of April 2015  for Carte Blanche

Contemporary dance for circus people:

26,27,28th of December 2014 for Circuscentrum Vlaanderen, De Expeditie, Gent



The classes will include improvisation with very specific tasks and exercises to build strength and power. We use the resistance of the floor to move in space. We work with the awareness of the body center to get in and out of balance and explore extremes. Energy and dynamic changes can make any movement interesting. To work with a partner, sometimes explains more then only ourselves. I developed my own way of moving by experience and by listening to the body. We explore each individual mover in a unique way.




Satya created the Belgian company Studio Eclipse in 2010 and makes performances on outdoor locations. With her last performances ‘Two sink, three float’ in the water and “Fallen Thoughts’ in a tree, she toured them on international festivals.

Satya danced as a free lancer until she got into the French Company Ex-Nihilo from 2006-2010.

Satya was teaching at Artes del Movimiento Institito Universitario Nacional del Arte and Compagnie IUNA in Buenos Aires, for Ex-Nihilo in Marokko, Korea and France, Amsterdam Dance Centre, Hybrid Studio and Studio Grez in Brussels.

With a team of Dogtroep, she worked with prisoners in The Netherlands.

Own organised workshops are only on irregular basis.

101555262_GRt52Jq0          101555219_gXU8MOc6

In these sessions, we work with contemporary dance movements in combination with live music.

We use specific floor exercises to build strength and power, using the resistance of the floor to move in space.

We work with the awareness of the body core to get in and out of balance and explore extremes.

Through improvisation and group work, we involve listening and feeling.

Themes of the sessions include trust, partner work, space, and music.

Robbert van Hulzen / drummer from The Netherlands

Drummer & composer Robbert van Hulzen’s music plays somewhere in the multicoloured twilight zone between improvisation, rock, and contemporary composed music, with Indian and Indonesian influences. From the India-based gallery jazz trio oto.3 via the abstract storytelling of dancer Michael Jahoda’s Phillip Project to the world collision filmrock of his latest project Loodgieters.He recently returned from his musical journey elephant songs – from South India to the Netherlands on an Indian motorcycle loaded with drums, playing concerts with local musicians en route.

Two Faces solo: Company Studio Eclipse creation 2008

A dance solo with a goat
The goat and the girl lived together forever.
They can rely on rhythm and habits.
When that changes suddenly, everything gets pulled
out of balance and exhibits the goat, and the girl.
During the dance solo an intimacy and vulnerability
of the character is shown. Accompanied on violin.

‘Two sink, three float’ Creation 2009-2010 Company Studio Eclipse


A trio with dance and visual theatre
The water as unkown, depth, subconcious
lets things float or sink
On this thin membrane between top and bottom
one is taken into a surreal and visual story
Three characters find their balance on a platform, amongst themselves
with the elements
There is an underworld
a world under, which we do not see
It is not shown on the surface
or is it?
