Inne Goris will be directing all of the events within Once Upon a Story which will take place from 12-21 July. For more information, please visit the event page by following the link in the left hand panel.
Inne trained as a theatre director and drama teacher at the Maastricht School of Drama – her work crosses the boundaries of art, theatre and dance and much originates from a fascination with fairy tales and their implicit, dark undertone. Inne’s theatre debut was Niet in staat tot slechte dingen (BRONKS, 1996-1997), an intriguing portrait of the hard and ruthless world of children at play. Her next three pieces Zeven (2001), Drie Zusters (2003), a collaboration with Bart Moeyaert, and Pride and Prejudice (Het Toneelhuis, 2003-2004) were nominated for the 1000 Watt Prijs. Other work includes Hersenkronkels (Villanella, 2004), De Dood en Het Meisje (2005), La petite fille qui aimait trop les allumettes (2006), Droesem (2007) and Naar Medeia (2008). Since 2009, Inne has been creating under the wings of LOD. Nachtevening (Equinox) (LOD & ZEVEN), the second part of her diptych based on the classic Medea, premièred in November 2009. For Wall (May 2010), Inne once again drew inspiration from a text by Pieter De Buysser with composition by Dominique Pauwels. Together with Dominique, Inne created musical installation Daydream (2011) for Manchester International Festival and Father, Mother, I and We (2011). They were joined by video designer Kurt d’Haeseleer for Long Grass which premièred at Kunstenfestivaldesarts in May 2012.
