    assembly required / everybody included

    Love is a collaborative work of art.
    We are here to ask you:
    What do you include in your life?

    Welcome to ClubINC!

    In ClubINC, host Connor Schumacher and eight dancers take you through a whirlwind total experience of connection.
    Using everyone's knowledge and experience, this performance creates an inclusive world where you are seen, you see others and everyone can participate. Expect fun and vulnerability in an encounter with a group of people who are different from you, or is it you that’s different? We invite you to see them, in an exploration of how together we can fill the dance floor with understanding and appreciation of our differences. A sensational gathering, practicing new skills for life in dance: from opera to techno - let's go!

    There was you 
    There was the other 
    There was us 
    There is the world 
    And there is every body in it

And about yourself.

    ARK/Connor Schumacher: 
    Connor Schumacher has formed a clear vision of what he wants from his work: to move people. Under the banner of his own foundation ARK, established in 2020, Connor's broad practice takes shape with various performances where the deep connection with the audience is leading. 
    In 2019, he won the Prize of the Dutch Dance Days and in 2022 he was one of five nominees for the Giekses Strijbis Podium Prijs. It is his deep conviction that our society would be better off if we danced every day.
