It includes tapping and audience rhythm exercises and is combined with extracts of her film ‘One Million Steps'.

Professional tap dancer Marije Nie is a musician with her feet, a dancing percussion player since 2005. She is fascinated by the power and the poetry of steps, and their ability to navigate many different worlds. Marije’s dancing transforms traditional tap-dance into a contemporary form; she builds bridges between different artistic disciplines, traditions and cultures. In 2007 Marije received the Dutch Jur Naessens prize for innovation in music. Sharing knowledge and working methods of artists between disciplines, with communities and with professionals from outside the arts is a main topic in her work. Ms Nie works in classical music, jazz, film and theater, creates interdisciplinary theater pieces, community art projects, interventions and workshops. She is part of Splendor, a musician-led concert space in Amsterdam. Her multi-award winning dance documentary One Million Steps places dance as a catalyst in the public space in the midst of the Istanbul protests of 2013. She co-founded the artist driven research lab Radio Kootwijk Live, which operated from 2009 until 2015 in The Netherlands.

In 2017 she was invited by director Eugenio Barba to become long-term artist in residence at Nordisk Teater Laboratorium in Holstebro, Denmark, where she works as performer and project developer. Projects include the performance ‘What Is Mine’, with director Vilja Itkonen (FIN), the yearly festival SLASH at the Slagteriet Holstebro and Urban Story Hunter projects in Gullestrup and Vinderup. As part of her residency at NTL she co-founded the interdisciplinary collective Cross Pollination together with Adriana La Selva, an international and interdisciplinary network of performers and academic researchers which focuses on the dialogue in-between practices, new ways of knowledge building and understanding collaboration, connecting theater practice with artistic research.
