What starts as a lecture about Benjamin Verdonck’s new book even i must understand it enjoyably derails into a production that introduces you to one or more table stages. He presents a playful guide to the winding road from his studio to the stage, using stories, photos, films, a little theatre in a box, a cat, and music.

Meyoucycle
Meyoucycle

Meyoucycle sounds like ‘musical’ pronounced in a strange accent. Along with composer Chris Peck and four Ictus musicians, Bauer blends together all the ingredients for a musical, producing a completely new, hybrid genre. The piece is about you and me and everything in between. That’s right, a me-you cycle.

The Making of Justice

Sarah Vanhee écrit un film policier avec sept détenus – tous inculpés de meurtre. L’intrigue s’inspire de leurs propres expériences, idées et rêves, alors qu’il est question de motifs, d’incarcération et de réintégration. À vous de deviner s’ils se servent de la fiction pour confirmer, défendre, modifier ou échapper à leur situation personnelle.

The Guardians of Sleep

What happens exactly when we fall asleep? What is it like to be a viewer watching other people fall asleep in a theatre, to witness this most intimate act? The Guardians of Sleep is a collective attempt to withdraw in a world that is always ‘switched on’ – and where an ‘off’ button simply doesn’t seem to exist.

(Re)discover Jérôme Bel’s declaration of love to the performing arts! A colourful mix of dance lovers and professional dancers from diverse genres and cultures perform a veritable New Year’s gala. But this gala radically questions the codes of the performing arts. It undermines the authority of ‘good dancing’ and celebrates the desire and pleasure of standing on a stage and sharing something with the audience. Feeling the winter blues? Come to Gala!

In the whirlwind of work, relationships, deadlines and discussions, we sometimes get distracted from the most important things in life: feeling alive and being conscious of our entire being and everything around you. The Monastery is an experimental spiritual urban community that aims to do exactly that: by performing daily rituals and making every action an intense experience.

Nathalie Pattyn researches the influence of light and dark on the quality of sleep. She spent long research periods on Antarctica during the summer, with almost permanent sunlight, and during the winter, when the sun never rises. She discusses physical reactions to the presence or absence of light, and the influence of our biological clock on sleep patterns.
