Lunatics and Poets is an interdisciplinary dance company and creative studio based in Amsterdam and founded in 2017 by Anna Jacobs and Hanna van der Meer. They create work for theatre, film and installation, in which choreography, visual art and fashion merge.
Lunatics and Poets reflect the current temper of time and make work that is deeply rooted in society. Through movement and fashion, they give form to impermanent identities, emotions and beliefs. These two disciplines merge into a new universal language that is poetic and absurd, light and dark. It is a language of gestures, movements and visuals that are directly taken from daily life. Lunatics and Poets brings audiences together, instigates a diverse dialogue and envisions a collective future.
