Tara D’Arquian is a Belgium-born (part time London based) Dancer and Choreographer, who is very excited about about the premiere of her new piece, Bad Faith, part of the In Situ TrilogyMarch 14th & 15th at Laban Theatre.

I’ve sent Tara a few questions about her premiere, her choreographic style, working between Brussels and London and how she keeps mental and physical wellbeing in check. You can follow my questions below as you listen to her fantastic responses.


  • Could you briefly describe the progression from In Situ, Quests, and now Bad Faith and its relationship to Nietzsche’s Three Metamorphoses?
  • How did the choreographic process vary within each work? How do you prefer develop work with your dancers?
  • When did you know you wanted to create a trilogy or did it seem like a natural progression artistically?
  • In terms of style, your work is brilliantly dynamic and group/partner oriented. What would you say has influenced your style over the years?
  • How often do you try to work in site specific spaces? Do you prefer unique spaces to stages encompassing a fourth wall?
  • How much time do you spend between Brussels and London? Are you also working with dancers in both places to perform your work?
  • What’s your dance background composed of … where did you train?
  • What do you love most about dancing and choreographing at the same time?
  • What are you doing to maintain (somewhat) of a balance between getting work done and having some time to yourself?
  • Lastly, what are you most excited about once Bad Faith finally premieres?
