Dianne is a performance maker, singer, actress, and voice artist. With a degree and post masters from a.pass in Performance, with her work focuses is using Voice and Sound as tools performativity, how the experiential and listening affects the body, the perception, the emotional connectivity.
Whilst at the 1 year research programme a.pass (www.a.pass.be) she produced and created The Passage… an installation performance based on a film of George Perecon the themes of migration and displacement that was presented at de Singel Antwerp and Kunstenwerkplaatz Pianofabriek Arts Lab Brussels in 2010. Taking this a step further and working on recycling art at the time, she decided to turn this performance material into a Lecture Performance that was presented after a residency at ZSenne Artlab in Brussels in 2013.
Whilst at a.pass Dianne become more interested in the field of Sound and Radio. As a natural progression from her work as a voice artist Dianne work began making Radio plays and performances. Sound has the potency to transport the listening into another states of consciousness through memory and its directness. The role of sound has a particular musicality that that appeals to her. She then created For Your Ears Only a radiophonic theatre show which premiered in the Beurrshouwburg in Brussels in 2015, that played at Kunstencentrum BUDA and the Monty venues in Flanders and will be played in Gent in early 2016.
Dianne has began a research into developing It could happen to You! You an installation/performance that is busy with the investigation of deep listening. What happens to the body whilst doing so? To the brain? How does this look from an observers perspective and can we create a choreography from this material?
Prior to this Dianne also co-created the Children’s Music Theatre Performance les Voyagers, conceived the Musical Comedy Act the PushUps with 5 dancer/actresses/singers. With this act we performed, amongst other venues, at the Smartival Festival, Ancienne Belgique for the Humo TV awards in 2009, Kunstenwerkplaatz Pianofabriek Arts Lab Brussels, Les Bain: Connective and then toured France with Beverly Jo Scott.
