Benjamin Vandewalle [BE] presented by workspacebrussels

Peri-Sphere

25.03 – 27.03.2017

Benjamin Vandewalle’s latest investigation in the realm of the visual takes the form of a one-on-one performative installation. You are invited to take place in a mobile periscope system that elicits a profoundly immersive and disorienting experience. Rethink the spatiality of seeing!

• Benjamin Vandewalle graduated from PARTS in 2006, and has since developed a series of installation performances that question your perception, such as Birdwatching (2009) and Point of View (2013).

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.

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
