Danse 2000 ~ One Minute of Dance a Day


Danse 2000 ~ One Minute of Dance a Day

Dancing July 5th, starting 11h11 – all together via internet with ZOOM for the 2000th daily dance with the french performance artist Nadia Vadori-Gauthier ( @uneminutededanseparjour #oneminuteofdanceaday ) as part of Nadia’s project ‘One Minute of Dance a Day’ .
Following the Charlie Hebdo attack on January 7, 2015 Nadia Vadori-Gauthier established her project ‘Une minute de danse par jour’ and has been dancing daily ever since january 14, 2015 for a minute or a little more. A daily act of poetic resistance, involving dance and video.
For her 2000th dance she organised this extraordinary event ‘2000 danses pour la danse 2000’ together with Chaillot – Théâtre national de la Danse.

Nadia’s Motto 

…as Nietzsche once said…

« A day without dancing is a day wasted »

Or, more exactly :
“And lost be the day to us in which a measure hath not been danced. And false be every truth which hath not had laughter along with it!” From: Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche in “Thus Spake Zarathustra”.

Water Windmiller Pieter van der Burg

Water Windmiller Pieter van der Burg | 20140821 | 1-memo.com | Great-great-great grandfather ‘Pieter’ van der Burg was a water-miller 200 years ago (from 1811) on the ‘Noorddammolen’ (the North Dam Mill) of the “Oude Pijnackerse polder” (Old Polder of Pijnacker) in South-Holland. The Noorddammolen was demolished in 1861 (a few years after Pieter had died) when a steam pumping-engine was build for the job. This picture from around 1900 shows both the similar neighbouring water mills and the steam pumping engine : in the front first the Zuiddammolen (South Dam mill) – then the chimney of the steam pumping-engine at the site were that ‘Noorddammolen’ of Pieter used to be, finally the Noordmolen (North Mill).
Background on the Noorddammolen – That mill had been rebuild in 1577 after the original mill had been destroyed during the Spanish Siege of Leiden. Further note that Pieter had moved to another mill already in 1815. Image source / part of the info : molendatabase.org | Allemolens.nl.
