‘Love and the Soul (for that is what Psyche means) had sought and, after sore trials, found each other; and that union could never be broken.’ ‑ Cupid and Psyche

Choreographers Felix Mathias Ott and Bahar Temiz are fascinated by a movement language that shifts between intimacy and sheer violence. How does a performance creates its own stage, its own beginning, its own onlookers on the verge between violence and tenderness?

Earlier this year they presented the outcome of a first new research phase. In the controlled space of a dance studio they created a mythological playground where two bodies were put in an unfurling state. During Performatik they will confront this material with the social context of a theater foyer.

Workspacebrussels is a workspace for live arts in their most diverse forms. During Performatik17 they unleash a series of public interventions that might change the way you look at things.

Strange figures in camouflage suits dwell through the urban space. Inspired by female shamanic practices, they shift from being a part of your surrounding to an autonomous, physical body.

Filip Berte’s current project focuses on the mechanism of inclusion and exclusion of uninvited newcomers in Western society. With the use of a camera obscura and a hidden digital camera, he installed a critical ‘moment of auto-reflection’ in several asylum centers. During Performatik he initiates a new phase of the project in an asylum center in Brussels
