Patrick is angry and he wants to break everything around him. When attending a forced anger-management course he meets other enraged people from different backgrounds. An experimental therapist tries to force their brutal energy out through dance. Can Patrick find a way to direct his violent energy towards something that is valuable for him, or even worthwhile for others?
Thomas Bos (1988) is interested in movement, humor and authenticity. Agnes de Mille once said: ‘The truest expression of a people is in its dance and in its music. Bodies never lie.’ Words are often used to hide stuff, film can be used to show it. Thomas obtained his bachelor’s degree in Digital Video Design which he uses to make videodesigns for museums, on stage -dance performances and online teasers. This work has been performed and shown (among other places) at Centraal Museum Utrecht, Eye Filmmuseum Amsterdam, Lowlands Festival, Sziget Festival (Hungary), Lunga Festival (Iceland), Artscape (South Africa), Indonesia and Freetown (Sierra Leone). He started (break)dancing at age 12. During his studies he did an internship for multimedia artist Oliver Laric in Berlin. Before, during and after his studies Thomas has been performing on stage. Most notably for 155 (onefivefive), Dox, MAAS and de Dansers. Thomas is currently making autonomous videowork as tommie and is a dancer and artistic director at the dancecollective 155 (onefivefive) alongside his brother Erik.
