PERFORMATIK2013 - Meggy Rustamova is creating a video and a performance for Performatik. The title refers to a ‘disrupted’ place, an ‘in-between space’ that you enter on your way to somewhere else. You appear to know where you are going, yet the new place is a mystery. (dis)Location examines fiction and reality and the transition between the two. The performance is based on spontaneity, chance, and what may or not be expected.

Radouan Mriziga explores polyrhythm, a bass rhythm in African music. By looking for the social equivalent of this unusual harmony, this exercise for two dancers reminds us of the necessity and value of difference in the creative process.

Karl van Welden stages a disaster scenario for a single object. This installation arose out of his fascination with volcanoes. The Fall examines our ambiguous attitude towards imminent calamity: our belief or disbelief concerning catastrophes, our fascination with decay.

The Belgian artist Pieter Van den Bosch studied performance and… pyrotechnics. He is creating a fire construction accessible to the public, a variation on an ‘attack situation’, though without any substantive or other danger.

This curated Beckett evening presents a surprising mix of forms: a monologue by Johan Leysen; a video lecture by philosopher and mathematician Jean Paul Van Bendegem; and a performative scenography as a possible landscape for a Beckett text. Through this combination, Kris Verdonck explores a fascination that he shares with Beckett, namely technology and the increasing conflict between humans and machines.

Thu 14.01 - Sat 16.01.10

Kris Verdonck quite often combines his fascination with machines with images and concepts that owe a lot to science fiction. This certainly applies to the three-part Actor #1, a performance about evolving: about what has come into being, what is, and what may come into being. Three variations on the metamorphosis from chaos to order. The three parts of the performance are shown in separate rooms at the Kaaistudios, and a guide takes you from one to the other.

Never have so many messages been sent into the world or have we ever been as reachable. But do we still really talk to each other – or only to ourselves and our devices? In AntennA, Kevin Trappeniers constructs an antenna that is several metres high, creating a new, silent space. What might the content of this new void be?

WORKING TITLE FESTIVAL — You can’t marry for papers only. If you want to keep a foreign national in the country, you are expected to create what the Belgian government calls 'a sustainable community living’, otherwise the relationship falls into the category of a fictitious marriage. What if two artists got married, without having a romantic affair?

Wed 20.03 - Sat 23.03.19

Blind Spot is a quest to find what scarce traces remain of Epp Kotkas, an Estonian artist who was active in the experimental dance scene of New York in the 60s and 70s. Talve combines fact and fiction to tell the story of an artist who was totally unknown in her home country. What you witness is an essayistic memory that attempts to reconstruct an unrecorded past.
