KEES DE HAAN
Kees de Haan (1990) is a poet, dancer and sculptor. He is the founder of The Army of the Insecure, which offers therapeutic sessions in the streets of Amsterdam. He draws inspiration from the practice of Butoh, whereby one is able to dance with his own difficulties, and enjoy them, even. In the Anemic Tiger Dances a Symphony, Kees de Haan shows his attachment to dreams and failure- an ode to trying.
