My name is Nicola van Straaten and here you can find the various films and artistic projects that I have either created or been involved in. I am a South African choreographer and artist.
I find my discovery and exploration of choreography and dance-making takes place through mediums that include writing, photography or film. Aside from an interest in zine-making and publication, I am also interested in photography and the idea of art-making through collecting. Two of my personal and ongoing photography projects include Para-pleure and Beds, the process of each of these projects are documented through Tumblr sites. I also like to write and have been writing about dance and various performances, at the blog People Are Dancing.
In 2016 I started a printed and online publication about dance, movement and bodies with my two friends Julia de Rosenwerth and Kopano Maroga. It’s called ANY BODY ZINE, go check it out!
