Koen De Preter is a choreographer and performer. What is specific to his trajectory is the conscious risk-taking with forms and target audiences and his movement between various different circuits. He puts out connecting performances rooted in social engagement. He creates both evening and school performances inside and outside of the theatre halls and sets up social-artistic projects.
In his performances he shows a fascination for performers of all ages and backgrounds. Eclectic soundtracks are continuously present throughout his creations. Koen is currently, with the support of a development grant, committed to researching the relationship between music and movement.
Koen De Preter’s work is always balancing between abstraction, theatricality, humour and emotion. In essence, his work is about connection and can be seen at (inter)national dance festivals (Julidans, Potsdamer Tanztage, SICK festival, Internationales Festival Freiburg…) as well as Belgian art and cultural centres.
In 2022-2023 Koen De Preter reprises followfollow (a fABULEUS production) and Tender Men.
