Gaëtan Rusquet [FR/BE]
09.11 – 10.11.2016
In the run up to Performatik 2017 – the Brussels biennial of performance art – we will be reviving some of the highlights from the last edition. The French scenographer and artist Gaëtan Rusquet will once again be presenting Meanwhile. In this apocalyptic performance Rusquet has three performers build a construction. Is it a model or in fact an installation? The actors continually have to fight against the threatened destruction of what they are building up. By playing with the scale, the role of the body changes from pure power to helplessness.
Its raw materiality, physical sound and inescapable language of movement make Meanwhile a penetrating performance. The passage of time and the relationship between humans and their environment become tangible: the history of a city unfolds before your eyes.
