Eddy Roos

Eddy Roos was born in 1949 in Amsterdam. He studied sculpture and theatre at the Academy of Fine Arts of Amsterdam, student of prof. Paul Gregoire.
From the start of his career as a sculptor Eddy Roos became immensely fascinated by dance and motion, which also is expressed in his constant interest in choreography. Of great importance of his development as a sculptor were afterwards his intensive contacts with modern dancer Pauline de Groot. At the end of the seventies he began to draw in sturdy crayon-sketches his own choreography of a ballet. He interpreted the Greek word choreography literally: in hundreds of drawings from an improvising model in motion he 'described' the desired dance figures. He arranged those drawings into a motion sequence, after which his model and he danced the successive figures. This dance was then recorded photographically. In cooperation with Cultureel Centrum de Klinker in Winschoten it was possible to perform the choreography on a stage in 1981. Since then Eddy Roos had to spend all his energy on carrying out his monumental commissions and especially on the realisation of his bronze sculptures for the Verhildersum Manor.
