Belgian choreographer and dancer Astrid Boons started her career as a dancer at Dansgroep Amsterdam and NDT2, before she connected with GöteborgOperans Danskompani. It was here she made her first choreographic work. In 2016, she returned to the Netherlands, where she made a great impression during Here we live and now with the intense duet Rhizoma. The success of the piece was instant: together with Ryan Djojokarso and Sabine Molenaar, Astrid was awarded the BNG Bank Dance Prize 2017 and in the same year she won a Piket Art Prize for young, promising artists. In 2017, she created her second duet for Here we live and now: Vestige, which was equally well received by press and public.
