The worlds of artist-in-residence at Kaaitheater Benjamin Vandewalle, Kobe Wyffels, and Hannah Bekmans couldn’t not be more different. In Common Ground, they search for intersections and differences through movement. One moment they are performing fragile and intimate duets, but the next a competitive test of strength erupts. What can they learn from one another?

The vocal ensemble HYOID and artist-in-residence at Kaaitheater Benjamin Vandewalle are adapting Indianerlieder (1972) by Karlheinz Stockhausen, an iconic but rarely performed work. They are creating a gesamtkunstwerk that aims to reveal the vitality and timelessness of Stockhausen’s music. They are abandoning the original scenography in order to place the audience at the very centre of the three-dimensional ritual.

Can dance be a tool to imagine the future? Can you make science fiction with choreography?  Starting from the abstract drawings of Valery Pavlovich Lamakh, artist-in-residence Michiel Vandevelde has created an alienating choreography that offers you a glimpse of a possible future. Whether this future looks utopic or dystopic depends on how you look at it.
