Marc Vanrunxt creates a dance performance based on the work of the solitary Lucien Goethals, pioneer of Flemish electronic music. The result acts as a journey through time, towards what in the 1970s was still the music of the future, and which quite possibly still sounds like that now.

History is always partly fiction. Starting from this premise the American choreographer Trajal Harrell reinterprets our pasts. He installs an encounter between the pioneer of early modern dance Loïe Fuller, the instigator of butoh Tatsumi Hijikata and the Comme des Garçons founder Rei Kawakubo. He also introduces the hoochie coochie shows: seductive belly dance spectacles.

In this piece for three dancers, Ola Maciejewska draws her inspiration from Loïe Fuller, one of the pioneers of modern dance and performance art. She explores the relationship in the arts between human beings and physical matter by creating movement in large pieces of fabric. She plays with the confluence of bodies and objects and the battle that these wage.

How do we envision the art spaces of tomorrow? How can we reshape these meeting places and laboratories for coexistence? The artists of Damaged Goods set up camp in a former factory in Molenbeek – housing the Decoratelier of scenographer Jozef Wouters – to formulate some physical answers to these questions.

Heine Avdal and Yukiko Shinozaki experiment with light as a measurement of time: using black outs they create an illusion of darkness within which one can sense subtle shifts and changes in brightness and temperature. Light thus takes on almost tangible forms.

Flood is a choreography of entrances and exits. In the midst of our throwaway society and the flood of new technologies and ideas, Daniel Linehan questions the cultural domination of the new. At the same time, he considers what is disappearing, and what is becoming superfluous at an ever-faster pace.

When Vincent Dunoyer began to create performances himself it struck him that dance industry professionals would always ask him the same thing. ‘Can you send us a DVD of the performance?’ In DVD DVD he creates a montage of personal and professional memories, like a lecture interspersed with video and dance. Both intimate and universal!

Every era has its own wonders of the world: an impossible idea that then goes on to be actually built, and which is larger and more impressive than anything we have previously known. Mriziga weighs up two standards against one another: the built world, created to impress; and the ultimate wonder of the world: the human body itself.

Boris Charmatz and Emmanuelle Huynh pay tribute to the French choreographer Odile Duboc. They dance two versions of her boléro 2 (1996), once in an extremely slow interpretation, and then in its original form. According to Duboc, “In the slow form, the pair sculpts a common substance.”
