Collectief MAMM - Maxime Abbenhues & Mees Meeuwsen

New Adventures 2023 #3 / Supported Artists

Collectief MAMM, consisting of Maxime Abbenhues (Netherlands, 1997) and Mees Meeuwsen (Netherlands, 1998) met at the Urban Contemporary Dance course at the Amsterdam School of the Arts (AHK), where they both graduated in 2020. They found each other in their love for partnering and acrobatics. In their work they develop partnering techniques that are not based on strength, but on sharing momentum to move another body, and therefore aspire to make no distinguishment between traditional partnering roles.   
Their performances explore the phenomenon of "the twenty-something" in all its complexity, contradiction and superficiality. Their concepts are always rooted in how they as young adults view today's world in order to provide an insight into, a still often, misunderstood generation. During their New Adventures residency in 2023, Collectief MAMM began their movement research into the use of bungee cords as a metaphor for today's inability to stop and stand still. They are currently further developing their research into a performance called No Strings Attached.   
Their work has previously been shown at Karavaan Festival, Theaterfestival Boulevard, Jonge Harten, SSBU, Korzo, among others, as well as internationally in Italy, France and England. Last year they won MittelYoung 2023 in Italy with their performance Something else. They are connected as young makers to Karavaan Festival's Makershuis.
