5 vragen aan… Leon Franzke

6 mei 2019

Dit voorjaar stellen wij aan de makers van Moving Futures vijf vragen. Vandaag praten wij met Leon Franzke.

Wat is onmisbaar tijdens jouw werk?

”Safety! Only a well educated and trained body can find creative capacity in extreme physically challenging situations. Only in a studio that feels safe, surrounded by open and kind colleagues I can find creativity in the sensitive and crucial topics we are working on. Usually my work relates directly and personally to my own inner being.”


Wat doe jij het liefst na een lange dag werken?

”I like to spend time with my wife or drink a beer. Outside my artistic work in NL I like a simple, rustic way of living and staying in touch with myself my family and nature.”


Wat wil jij het liefst aan mensen vertellen?

”Sometimes I want to tell people to shut up. The world is already very fast and loud, we would do good to take time and listen.”


Wat is jouw guilty pleasure?

”Everything you want to imagine. But my drugs will never be more than coffee, cigarettes, alcohol and movement. I would get lost, I tend to do things in the most extreme way possible.”


Waar zie jij jezelf over 5 jaar?

”I will still be dancing and teaching and traveling. I will probably have children and I might already be creating a new cultural institution in northern Germany. A place where artists work and exchange, residences and performances and classes. The Dwarsdriewer Performing Arts Festival (Noer, may 2019) I am organizing is a first step into that direction. I always want to continue learning, experiencing, trying, exploring, challenging. Nothing will be static, everything continues developing.”
