Suze Gort and her team will put on a live performance during the Food Friction Art Research Conference. She is a fourth-year student of the Bachelor Dance in Education. After her four years of studies, Suze thinks it is essential Dance applies in different situations and is a powerful tool for solving any problems. She participated in a dance project for children in the slums of Manila, the Philippines and is now engaged with dance for patients with Parkinson's disease.
She became involved in Food Friction through a study component in her third year of the course. Students then, need to set up an educational dance production for a specific target group. Together with Johanna Ruhr and Leticia Monsengo, Suze produced output for the elderly (with or without dementia) with a familiar theme, in this case, apple pie. By using apples, smells and sounds, senses were stimulated, and memories popped up. Beautiful and memorable moments were when apples and peels fell on the floor and the recognisable and abstraction assimilated.
