Eleanor Bauer [US/BE]
BAUER HOUR #14 – with Michael Helland
Eleanor Bauer calls the second season of her BAUER HOUR ‘the dance season’. In April Michael Helland will be present. This Brussels-New York dancer has worked with, among others, Xavier Le Roy, Daniel Linehan, Alexandra Bachzetsis, Tino Sehgal, Marina Abramović, Big Art Group, Ivo Dimchev and Bauer herself. Together with Eleanor he prepares a very special treat for the audience.
BAUER HOUR is a talk show, variety show, shit show, parlor show, all or none of the above and also an experiment. A space and time for whatever seems most important now and not later. An occasion to practice the unknown, to share the musings and amusings that decorate life and need a place to go at night so they don't cause insomnia, a container for the things that end with "you heard it here first." BAUER HOUR is not about Bauer, it's all about the guests… within the ruckus frame of Bauer, of course.
Everybody has a story so let's hear it, and talk is cheap so let's spend it. Small talk, medium talk, big talk, trash-talk, pillow talk, hard talk, shop talk, walk talk, fake talk, real talk, straight talk, curly talk, sideways talk, and backwards talk. No talk is also an option for special guests who prefer dance or pantomime. BAUER HOUR is a fixed quantity aimed at maximum quality - quality time, of course, of an hour.
Running episodically one Tuesday per month at Kaaistudios during Bauer's artists residency (2013-2016) and sporadically elsewhere, each performance is unique, according to the current time, place, guests, and interests.
