A short dance film, a portrait of six people with Huntington's disease

A special chance to get an inside look at the making of LITTLE MOVEMENT, the new short dance film by Maaike van de Westeringh (choreographer, co-director) and Sergio Gridelli (film maker) with music by Splendor composer David Dramm. After the film a conversation with the makers.

Little Movement is a short dance movie that portrays six people affected by the Huntington disease - in a dreamy space where time does not apply. Intimate choreography celebrates their lust for life, positive energy and resilience, within their vulnerable and fragile lives. Six people with Huntington's disease, who are of different ages and in different stages of the disease, are the thread of this short movie. A movement vocabulary is created - through individual rehearsals and conversations about their dreams, sweet memories and passions - that expresses their inner world. The uncontrolled movements caused by this disease become part of the performance. Music triggers their emotions into dance. The result is an intimate choreography, in a dreamy space, where time does not exist.

Member concert
Splendor can only be the independent and free hub that it is, thanks to the members who support us. We pay them back with our specialty: music. Every year, all Splendor musicians play one concert that's free for this crucial group to whom Splendor owes its everyday existence. Combined with many other events, this means that our members have free entrance to about 80 concerts a year for €9,99 p/m (and €4,99 p/m for minima and students!) – and receive a discount for all other concerts. Pretty good deal, right?

The members enable Splendor to remain independent, which is the only way to secure real freedom in programming, experimentation, risk-taking and the promotion of young, upcoming artists. If you can think of another place without a central programming, where last-minute concerts can be planned any moment, where there is no backstage and artists and audience are constantly mingling and hanging out at the bar, where mysterious creative outbursts can be presented that are often labeled 'too risky' elsewhere, and that still guarantees high quality by unleashing the best of The Netherlands' music scene in this creative playground – you get a free membership!
