About

SOMETIMES I TAKE PHOTOS, MY PUMA IS ALL THAT. I EAT WAY TOO HEALTHY, STILL CREATE MOVEMENTS INSIDE OF MY HEAD.


Hi, my name is Anil van der Zee. I was born in Sri Lanka and grew up in the north of Holland. I’ve studied classical ballet at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague before working in several ballet companies in the Netherlands and Switzerland. In 2007 I became ill after I contracted a viral infection to never fully recover. A few years later I was diagnosed with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis

The language of the body through dance and photography is more my thing. Nonetheless I might try to write a blog here and there about my experience with M.E. As a dancer I have been surprised by the treatments that patients receive and the controversy that surrounds this disease. I feel it’s important to share my side of the story and hope it helps to raise more awareness for M.E. Besides my terrible writing skills, English vocabulary & too often speaking my mind. You’ll hopefully still enjoy your stay.

Groetjes,

Anil van der Zee
