Isabelle Beernaert. A one of a kind choreographer known for her ability to translate the everyday, ordinary life into an extraordinary choreography. Her choreographies express what everyone goes through and feels at some point in life. The audience is able to recognize itself with the stories being told on stage.
To Isabelle the theatre is the most magical place on earth. It enables the choreographer to combine choreography, light and stage design to create a story through dance.
