Immerse yourself in the creation process and themes of Jelena Kostić’s new performance Losers (premiere autumn 2023). At the Open Studio, Jelena will present work-in-progress scenes with her dancers, and we will discuss the performance’s themes with experts. 

Losers is a performance that focuses on an experience that is familiar to all of us in one way or another: that of feeling like — or actually being — a loser. For the first time, Jelena is striving to incorporate humour into her dance language, making Losers a special and exciting new project. 

The second edition of the Open Studio will take place on Sunday 23 April at 7 p.m. at Club SoDa (DansBrabant) in Tilburg, at the end of a rehearsal and workshopping period with the dancers. They will perform scenes they have worked on in the preceding days.

We will also sit down with two guests to discuss how they relate to the performance and the theme.


Evelien van den Broek
Evelien van den Broek is a composer, performer and producer. She writes music at the interface of adventurous electronica pop, sound art and contemporary classical music. For Losers, she composes the music – a first collaboration between choreographer and composer!

Twan Hendriks
Tilburg artist Twan Hendriks’ world turned upside down when he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. But he did not throw in the towel and still tries to inspire people through his art, including his art project ‘Parkinson Grass Field’ and his Parki Foundation, with which he draws attention to the debilitating disease.

The evening will be hosted by Hedi Legerstee.
