About

Ellis van Veldhuizen was born in 1996 in Terneuzen, a small city in the Netherlands. After 21 years of life experience and movement research, she graduated from the Fontys Dance academy in 2017. Here she developed a fascination for the human ‘being’ and started to focus on the question: What does being alive mean and how can this be captured? By her work she tries to capture the invisible awareness of ‘living’ and ‘understanding’. She wants to create readable embodiments, to represent the feelings of ‘being a conscious and living being with deep and complex experiences’. In her exploration she finished a second bachelor degree in Psychology and is now completing her master degree. With this study, she wants to enrich her insights in the hidden worlds of our individuality and find the different places where body and psyche will meet as a being.
