An attempt to say the things you cannot say: The Silence, in Dutch “de Stilte”
The Silence wants to take children along, out of the concrete world of everyday into the abstract world of senses. Our organization wants to stimulate self-awareness of children but does not want to explain. Our organization wants to let children feel and taste art. Speaking about our performances, recognition is a very important issue. When children recognize their own feelings and experience their own imagination, performances become accessible. This is what our dance company wants to achieve. Children that never play will never learn. Our dance company wants to stimulate the imagination of children, so they can play more and they can tell their own story, the story of their imagination.
Dance means communication. Watching dance, a child does not have to understand a spoken language. The language of dance is international.
