Connor Schumacher

Connor moved to the Netherlands in 2010 after graduating from Purchase College in New York. In 2012, he started establishing a relationship with Dansateliers. With the support of the house he created a variety of works a.o Boy oh Boy (2013), I trust in this life we will have another moment alone (Performing Gender, 2014), The Fool (2015), Asset, Liability and Equity (2016, DANSLOKAAL, co-production Conny Janssen Danst and OK Future (2017), a surreal silent disco for Festival De Parade. In 2018 and 2019 he tours with the full length evening programme THREESOME through the Netherlands and will start up a new creation Funny, Soft, Happy & The Opposite.

Connor is a great conceiver and creator of wonderful and never obvious imagery. By searching for a balance between theatrical imagery, transparent use of objects, and composition Connor tries to bring awareness to the present moment.

He took part in Dancing Museums (2015-2017) with the purpose to explore new ways of interaction with audiences. For his work he was nominated for the Prize of the Dutch Dance Festival in 2017.

Connor was one of the five dance artists involved in the first edition of Dancing Museums (2015-2017).
