Ladies of Soul

Just wanted to say IT WAS AMAZING! It felt so good to be on that stage for 3 days in a row, 17.000 people every day. This was one of the best experiences in my life, I’ll never forget these days!

A big thankyou to Vincent Vianen, the choreographer of the show and the one who got me involved in this adventure. Also of course the ladies and the organization, you were so kind and so amazing to me, thanks! And of course thank YOU all for the support, love and all the messages!

Unfortunately I havent found any professional photos (yet), but this is what I got now.

Lots of love!

Replay Hyperflex

Remember I was in Italy earlier this year? Wondering what it was for? I am finally able to tell you!

Agency 180 Amsterdam contacted me that they were searching for a contortionist to film a video with for the new jeans called ‘Hyperflex’ by Replay. I was so excited! Such a big client! The video below is what we shot!
A few days after the shooting of the video me and a team from 180 flew to Italy to go to the headquarters of Replay. The Spring Summer ’15 fashionshow took place here and I was going to perform! After they played the video I was there live to show people my act. This was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever done! All these fashion people took out their phone, started filming and they were cheering and clapping all through my show! I loved it so much!

I hope you’ll enjoy the video! I’m very proud of it!

Sportgala Papendrecht contortion

Yesterday I had my first performance as a freelance artist. Last year the people from Sportgala Papendrecht asked me to do a contortion act during their show on the 5th of February. So yesterday was the day I premiered my very own choreographed contortion act. The music is by Yiruma and the song is called ‘River Flows In You’. I am very proud of this act and I think it is beautiful. Yesterday it went really well. My mom tried to film it, but unfortunately the quality isn’t that good. But because I’m sure a lot of you would like to see it, here it is. Enjoy and I hope you like it!

Haha just felt like showing you these funny pics where you can see that not everything goes well all the time haha 🙂

Flexible Friday

Last wednesday I’ve been training on a 1,5 m x 1 m x 1 m square. I’ll be doing an act, made by Flying Artwork, on december 21st. I wasn’t as scary as I expected it to be! These are some stills from a little clip my collegae made while I was practicing.  // Afgelopen woensdag heb ik getraind op een 1,5 m x 1 m x 1 m rechthoek. Ik zal hier een act op doen die gemaakt is door Flying Artwork, op 21 december. Het was gelukkig lang niet zo eng als ik had verwacht. Dit zijn een aantal ‘stills’ van een video die een collega maakte terwijl ik aan het oefenen was.

Flexible Friday – HGT Memories

I thought it was time to bring back some memories from already 5,5 years ago. On march 25th 2008, at 14 years old, I auditioned for Holland’s Got Talent. I was so nervous about how people were going to react on what I was showing them. Me and my family were already so used to me being flexible and doing ‘weird stuff’ that we weren’t sure about it being spectacular enough. I couldn’t wish for a better ending. A standing ovation from the whole audience including the judges, three yes’es, an overload of amazing messages and so it began. For the semi final I did a hoop/ring act and I wasn’t sure if it would draw as much attention as my audition which I did in the tissu/aerial silk. Luckily the audience, judges and viewers liked it again and I was put in first place so I immediately went to the finals. I only had 2 weeks to come up with a complete new act and costume. It was a stressfull time but we did it. The beautiful big ring I barrowed from a circus-friend and I had to bring back the tissu, because that was how the Dutch people first became to know me. It went better than I could have ever dreamt of and in the end.. I was handed over the trophy from the first season of Holland’s Got Talent. Thank you so much for voting and supporting me back then. It still means so much to me. I can’t believe that it has already been such a long time, but people still show so much love and support, I’m so thankful! Let’s go back in time and enjoy the video’s :)! // Ik vond het wel tijd om wat herinneringen boven te halen van al weer 5,5 jaar geleden. Op 25 maart 2008, toen ik 14 jaar oud was, deed ik auditie voor Holland’s Got Talent. Ik was heel nerveus over hoe mensen zouden reageren op wat ik hen zou laten zien. Ikzelf en mijn familie zijn er zo aan gewend dat ik vrij lenig ben en ‘gekke dingen’ kan en daardoor wisten we niet of het wel spectaculair genoeg zou zijn. Ik had geen betere uitkomst durven wensen. Een staande ovatie van het hele publiek inclusief de jury, drie keer ja, een overload aan geweldige reacties en zo begon het. Voor de halve finale deed ik een hoepel/ring act en ik was er niet van overtuigd dat dit minstens net zo veel indruk zou maken als mijn auditie die ik in de tissu/doeken deed. Gelukkig vond het publiek, de jury en de kijkers thuis het weer mooi en ging ik direct door naar de finale dankzij de stemmen. Ik had slechts twee weken om een geheel nieuwe act in elkaar te zetten en ook nog een kostuum te laten maken. Het was een periode met wat stress, maar het is ons gelukt. De mooie grote ring had ik van een circus vriend geleend en ik vond dat ik de doeken weer terug moest brengen omdat dat het gene was waar het Nederlandse publiek mij voor het eerst mee zag. Het ging beter dan ik had durven dromen en uiteindelijk.. Kreeg ik de troffee van het eerste seizoen van Holland’s Got Talent overhandigd. Ontzettend mega bedankt voor het stemmen en supporten toentertijd. Het betekent nog steeds heel veel voor mij. Ik kan niet geloven dat het zo lang geleden is, maar mensen nog steeds zo veel liefde en waardering tonen, ik ben heel dankbaar! Laten we even terug gaan in de tijd en geniet van de video’s :)!

Flexible Friday

I already gave you a sneak peak of this photoshoot in my ‘InstaWeek’ last week, but here you got the results! The photographer is Sjoerd Stellingwerf who needed to do this assignment for school. It’s something totally different from what I already have, so I am very happy with the pictures! Hope you like them too! Personally I like the first one the best 🙂 // Ik gaf jullie al een voorproefje van deze fotoshoot in mijn ‘InstaWeek’ van vorige week, maar hier heb je alle resultaten! De fotograaf is Sjoerd Stellingwerf en hij moest bij deze schoolopdracht met kaders werken. Het is iets totaal anders dan ik al heb, dus ik ben er heel erg blij mee! Ik hoop dat jij ze ook mooi vindt! Persoonlijk vind ik de eerste het mooiste 🙂
