Notes: During her studies, she worked on her own choreographies. ‘What the water feels like to the fishes’ is the first performance she could show outside school: it got selected for Uitmarkt in Amsterdam in 2006. Since 2010 she focusses mainly on site-specific work with (amongst others) Leaving Normal, Lucky Shots and Suitable Case. In Balancing Bodies Manon seeks a new relation with her audience. A big interest and focus is as well creation for a young audience.
