If you want to know more about the friendship between Matthew and Peter,1. For how many years do you know each other?
Matthew: We met four and a half years ago when I started dancing for the ballet here, but have only been friends for three of those years!
Peter: 5 years? not good with remembering dates…
2. Memorable giggle between you two?
Peter: hysterical laughing/exhaustion/food comas in chios, greece last summer
3. Memorable fight between you two if there is one?
Matthew: We work together alot so any fighting is usually coming from a disagreement about what a choreography is or should be!
Peter: never really fought, just have irritations when we are working together, I can be very unclear as a choreographer and that causes tension. we are working on a new dance piece right now and matthew’s dancing in it,
we know each other pretty well and that can both good and bad sometimes.
4. Best souvenir/moment spend together?
Matthew: As I said we work together alot and some of the best times have come out of that- setting up for Nuit Blanche last year and our upcoming expo at Hotel Arena- and during our holiday in Greece last year with Sterre and our friend Wolfgang- there is always alot of passion and laughter around!
Peter: There isn’t one single moment. I was very humbled when he danced my piece “The Black Sea Still” for Dutch National Ballet or we have everyday moments which are priceless, being creative or being stupid or both.
5. What would you never do with him?
Matthew: He always says he’s a horrible driver, but I’ve never seen him a drive a car so I don’t know- however based on his attitude towards it I would definitely have to think twice before getting in the car when he was behind the wheel.
Peter: Something we would never do together? Eat meat…
6. Which is his flaw you prefer?
Matthew: Peter is a child- he was born on leap day and actually has only had 8 birthdays- so he has a great excuse. But anyways I’m not sure if that’s a flaw, I think it’s a feature!
Peter: I guess his need to understand everything, it’s not always necessary…
7. please transcript the last sms or email or facebook message he has send you?
Matthew: “Hope you got some good work done today, I really appreciate you!!So thanks a million, keep going…”
Peter: “PETER! Barbara want’s the answers to these questions ASAP! Thanks!”
8. Name of a place you like to hang out together?
Matthew: At the music theater where we work there is a bench outside the dressing rooms for the dancers- most days we will sit there to discuss our projects and plans, so much that people call it our office, even though its in the middle of a hallway!
Peter: It would seem …”The muziek theater”… although that’s maybe a little sad..
