/// Eleven stories for the body, distance to our soul (2005)

Created in 2005, Eleven stories for the body was the first part in the trilogy of works where Filip Van Huffel collaborates with another art form.

Eleven stories for the body, distance to our soul finds its source in words, text and poetry from eleven stories about the body, written specially for this production by eleven writers and poets. The texts inspired, dictated and drove the direction of the movement and represented different perspectives of humanity, elements that make us who and what we are. Eleven stories for the body was a physical translation of these eleven impressions/expressions about the body.

Eleven stories for the body, distance to our soul was made possible with support from Arts Council England, College Street Centre, Dance 4, Lakeside Arts Centre and Derby Dance Centre in England, ccBe Antwerpen in Belgium and Choreographic Centre Linz in Austria.
