Performance collective Rotor company creates physical, visual performances about the meaning and meaninglessness of life, exploring the boundaries of the human body. The collective was formed during Hidde Aans-Verkade and Koen van der Heijden’s graduation show at the AHK’s Mime School. Their collaboration emerged from a shared fascination in our magical ability to lose ourselves in fantasy through the body; for exploring the extremities of the physical human body: the myth of Sisyphus.

In 2017 they created The Place To Be, a performance for which they received the 3Package Deal Award from the Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunst and Bureau Broedplaatsen leading to a tour in Het Debuut by Rudolphi Producties. In early 2018, Rick Busscher joined the team as producer.

Schweigman& supports Rotor in developing their work as an independent company, supporting them in co-production with partners and with international residencies and collaborations. Rotor is currently researching a new production for 2020.
