about

OFFprojects

OFFprojects is a collective consisting of former dancers of Nederlands Dans Theater and Batsheva Ensemble, gathered around the work of choreographer and musician Amos Ben-Tal. The group creates multi-disciplinary performances and events using dance, music, text and image. OFFprojects believe in work that is physical, layered and thought provoking. The team also sees it as their mission to make this work engaging and appealing for a wide public. 

Soon after their launch in 2012 the group gained a reputation for their ‘out of the box’ approach to dance and exceptional performing skills. In March 2014 OFFprojects premiered their first full-evening production OFFline. The show received rave reviews and was soon followed by their second full-length, the equally well received MIGHT. In 2016 the group won the prestigious Dioraphte Dance Prize for their production Howl (in collaboration with Spinvis). Their latest project about time-perception has spanned two years and included several short works and installations, culminating in the 2019 premiere of the full-evening choreography 60 at Julidans festival in Amsterdam.  

In its short existence the group has already performed extensively all over The Netherlands as well as in France, England, Germany, Luxembourg, Czech Republic and Russia.

The group’s other uniqueness is that every member has a secondary expertise except for dancing, resulting in every aspect of the production being done in-house and forming part of a conceptual whole. Except for Amos the core-group further consists of Aurélie Cayla (educational activities), Yvan Dubreuil (dramaturgy) Genevieve Osborne (coaching) and Milena Twiehaus (image).
