In 1957 two enthusiastic teachers, Frans Sunaert and Robert Bollen, wished to pimp the annual end-of-schoolyear party with a few flag-dance pieces. Not much later they found they were out of inspiration and they called in the help of dance-teacher Alicia Borghten from Antwerp. She managed to put the only-boys dance group on the tracks of time with choreographies inspired by classic and contemporary composers. In 1982 girls were admitted to dance with Imago Tijl, thus opening new perspectives but also doubling the numbers of members to an odd 200 dancers. In 1988 the younger ones spinned off into Imago Junior with their very own dance show entitled Early Cadenzas. Meanwhile Jan Imants and Luc Morren had taken over from retiring Alicia. Together they created new and adventurous choreographies for Imago Tijl.
Luc Morren is already several decades a very active man in the art world of Belgium. He is connected as choreographer and/or dance teacher to Imago Tijl, Art school of Northern-Limburg, Pantarei, Musart and the choir Scala. He was also active as host choreographer to several dance ensembles abroad. He created dances for the Dance academy in Tilburg (The Netherlands), dance group Sidharte of Strombeek-Bever (Belgium), flags dance group Symbolica from Genk (Belgium), the ballet school Stowarzyszenie Przyjaciól Tanca of Lublin (Poland) and a masterclass contemporary dance in Guadalajara (Mexico). In 1995, Luc won the prize for cultural achievement of the city of Lommel. For the city of Lommel he directed several projects as ‘A Christmas carol’, ‘Sirk the Soeverein’, ‘Amoureus’ (an art project of 10 days). And also for this art project he created the solo dance ‘Amoureus’ for Wim Vanlessen, principal dancer of the Royal Ballet of Flanders.Back to the list of ensembles
