dance - Season 12/13
WoWmen! - Actress and visual artist Dolores Bouckaert and dancer Charlotte Vanden Eynde are fascinated by the deceptiveness of the body as an expressive medium. In this show they explore how to manipulate the theatrical body and how to unmask it.
WoWmen! - Sabina Toll describes her music as ‘electro with spacy dimensions’. Her influences range widely, from Edith Piaf through Kraftwerk to Nina Simone and Dead Can Dance. And she explores at least as many different directions in the universe with her own sound. She brings WoWmen! to a close with a big bang!
The new production by Thomas Hauert was inspired by the radiophonic pieces he used to listen to when he was a child. On stage we see seven dancers and one violist. They cause a short circuit in our rational thinking and immerse us in a sensitive and empathic experience.
A new double episode in a series of by now legendary dance and music duets by dancer and choreographer Jonathan Burrows and musician and composer Matteo Fargion: a glimpse into the creation of their work as well as a rant about structure, accompanied by live piano pieces and disintegrating cartoons.
In 1993 two young dancers, Boris Charmatz and Dimitri Chamblas, made their debut with À bras-le-corps. In 1998 they presented it in the Kaaistudio’s. Now, twenty years after its creation, we're staging their show once again: an intense, fast and virtuoso choreography.
