Floor van Leeuwen (1984) is a mimographer and co-founder of the physical theater collective Schwalbe since 2008. Since 2008 she has also worked regularly with Lotte van den Berg on Building Conversation and Dying Together, among other things. Her work is characterized by a research in collective movement. Her style is minimalistic and energetic; a seemingly simple act can find a poetic depth in the duration and interaction between individuals. With Schwalbe she made Schwalbe zoekt Massa (Schwalbe is looking for crowds, 2014), a performance in which the interaction between individual and mass was investigated and up to 100 new participants participated per performance. In 2019 she made Muur (Wall) with a group of circus artists, mimers, dancers and amateur movers.

RÆV REHEARSAL is a collaborative project between Artúr van Balen | TOOLS FOR ACTION and choreographer Floor van Leeuwen. The starting point for RÆV REHEARSAL is the question of assembly. Can we develop new forms of assembly, also in times of COVID-19? RÆV REHEARSAL proposes a playful exercise in future forms of manifestation, based on swarm principles. During the residency we will research swarm behaviour and make little tests with a distributed speaker system in public space. Can we move as a swarm of dancing bodies through the city? And can we design tools for manifestation, based on swarm principles?
