performance - Season 12/13
The right to be lazy! Paul Lafargue, son-in-law of Karl Marx, was already advocating this in 1880. However, it will still take a lot of effort to have this recognised as a human right. In recent years our world has become even more agitated and hectic. There is one consolation: the quest for rest plays a central role in EXIT. A performance that is like a beneficial rest cure!
During Working Title Platform (WTP) the public can see the results of Workspacebrussels’ residence work. WTP provides an overview of the work of these young artists and gives an insight into their work and thought processes. At the Kaaistudio's: Albert Quesada, Sara Manente, Ariane Loze and Davis Freeman.
This will be a piece about the understanding of orchestral music, its repetitions, structures and the play with time. A group of dancers will guide the audience through a listening experience, and rhythmically conduct the sound with their actions. The rhythm of their abstract movement in synchrony or asynchrony with the music will create the narrative
This place starts from the idea of displacement as motor, vector, generator of physical movement, sense and values. In their new project Sara Manente and Marcos Simoes want to apply this notion to the proximity between things and things in a relational process. For example all the elements of an artistic creation: being objects, performers, words and audience.
A better place is an attempt to solve all of the world’s problems in one 45-minute performance. Yes it might seem ambitious, but why not let art again have a chance to change the world? A better place will be the third piece of Davis Freeman & Jerry Killick’s action performances which reflect on what it’s like to live in the world today.
