L’œil la bouche et le reste
L’œil la bouche et le reste

After a series of solos, Volmir Cordeiro has created his first work for four dancers. He has created a dance that aims to express the physical movement and behaviour of the eye. The interior, the hidden and even the pre-human and cannibalistic is exposed in this intense, almost obsessive inquiry into dance, and into the ineffable itself.

As a new voice within the contemporary Indonesian dance landscape, Eko Supriyanto explores the relationship between Javanese cultural heritage and the rhythm of the underwater world – a world without gravity where new perspectives emerge. He draws from his classical dance training, his diving experience, and the Javanese agricultural tradition of carving in the ground.

Exactly one hundred years after the October Revolution in Russia, Eric Sleichim and BL!NDMAN [strings] are presenting a new sound score to the legendary film Arsenal by director Alexander Dovzhenko. Along with Eisenstein’s Battleship Potemkin, Arsenal is rightly considered to be one of the revolutionary masterpieces of Soviet cinema.

On sound and imagination

Christoph De Boeck (artistic director of Overtoon) explains how blind people perceive their environment by interpreting subtle acoustic changes. Thanks to little echoes, they are literally able to imag(e)ine the space. He also discusses several examples of artists who have also employed sounds and echolocation to create spaces. Afterwards, Christoph will sit down with Anke Van Meer and Saïd Gharbi.

Performing Death. Rituals and Spirituality of Human Finitude

How can we deal with finitude? By living with death. How can that be real? By performing death. In this lecture Thomas Quartier – a Benedictine monk and professor for Ritual and Monastic Studies at KU Leuven – ritually links life and death by reflecting on music, embodiment and transcendence.

Five dancers and five musicians perform a polyphonic piece about death and saying goodbye. Nevertheless, there is also space for lightness. From the moment you are born, death is constantly approaching: life in freefall. By acknowledging death, Croizé and Guilloteau aim to celebrate life to the full.
