Connor Schumacher is a dance artist and artistic leader of Stichting ARK, the foundation within which he creates raves, performances, and organise movement classes, with the goal to get people moving.
Connor’s social choreographic practice has been developed through his participation in several European research projects, including Performing Gender, Dancing Museums and Empowering Dance. He has since won the Prize of the Nederlandse Dansdagen in 2019, been nominated for the Gieskes-Strijbis Podiumprijs of 2022 and collaborated with Amsterdam Dance Event, Drift Om te Dansen, and Boiler Room.
Through his research and practice he searches for new ways of interacting with an audience and the soft skills people can develop through dance. Society would be better if we danced everyday.
