On 9 and 10 December 2022, Gerben Vaillant and Trevoga (Neda Ruzheva and Antonina Pushkareva) will share their research in De Vlugt, as a conclusion to their four-week New Adventures residency. New Adventures is a programme of ICK Artist Space for new dance makers who want to deepen their creative practice. In a period of four weeks, these makers get the chance to work on their artistic development in freedom and safety. To facilitate their research, ICK provides guidance from the Artist Space and Academy departments. For the third New Adventures presentations of 2022 Gerben Vaillant and Trevoga return to the body in their researches on programmed ways of moving and the distance between humanity and reality. Both works are presented on the same evening in a double bill format, after which Gerben and Trevoga enter into dialogue with the audience to discuss their experiences and to reflect on their artistic research.

Gerben Vaillant

Gerben Vaillant (1994, NL) is an interdisciplinary maker, graduated from theatre and education studies at ArtEZ in 2017 and from the mime department of Amsterdam University of the Arts in 2021. Gerben has a strong interest in mime, dance and dance dramaturgy and makes performances about the distance between human and reality, explored in a mix of disciplines such as text, dance, image and philosophy. Gerben wants to contribute to a vision of the world in which there is room for those who break the established norms: a way to feel at home in queerness.


Trevoga is a choreographic duo, consisting of Neda Ruzheva (1999, BG) and Antonina Pushkareva (2000, RU), two dance makers based in Amsterdam. ‘Trevoga’ translates to ‘anxiety’ and this duo is dedicated to countering their own escapism and using their anxiety as a creative fuel. Their work is eerie, intoxicated, flashy, sad and cool. Neda and Antonina have graduated from the Modern Dance Theatre Department and the School for New Dance Development of the Amsterdam Academy of Theatre and Dance. In addition, they are developing their rave performance “минус” (minus).
