Bianca Lurvink - Interactive Performance Designer

sitee.jpg

As an all-rounder, Bianca (1995) can be subdivided into an interactive performance designer, designer, dramaturge, audience director and experience maker.

In her work, Bianca is looking for the elusive, the split second, that the audience experiences through a performance, installation or experience. In her work as an interactive performance designer she also knows how to connect new performance technology in an experience for audience as well for performers.

Besides the fact that Bianca is interested in new technology, she also likes to learn new crafts, to work with her hands and to work with 'analog' material. She uses this knowledge and experiments in production and research processes as well as in the final work.

The Achterhoekse 'Gas d'r op' and Rotterdamse 'Niet lullen maar poetsen' mentality are a few motives Bianca uses in her workflow.  

In 2016, she graduated at the Secondary Vocational School of Performing Arts at RijnIJssel College in Arnhem.

In 2020 she graduated at the University of Arts in Utrecht (HKU) at the study Interactive Performance Design (IPD)

During the third study year of IPD she did an internship with scenographer Theun Mosk.

Scenography work, theater design, installations and interaction design were shown at Bring Your Own Beamer Festival in the Netherlands and Belgium, Betweter Festival in Tivoli Utrecht, Festival 2 Turven Hoog, Theater Festival Vuurol, Hoogte 80 festival, Theater 't Hof Arnhem, AMZAF Young Talent Festival, Carolina Festival,  Visual Theater Festival Worteldagen, Ars Electronica Festival in Austria, Rijks Museum Amsterdam, Sites of Memory, RAN festival, MAKE SPACE HKU 2020, Theater Kikker.
