The philosopher Vinciane Despret asks 26 intriguing and pertinent questions about what animals do, want and ‘think’. This yields marvellous and sometimes hilarious stories, told by scientists, animal-tamers, zookeepers, etc. Stories that make us think. We are screening two short documentaries made in 2005 by film-maker and activist Didier Demorcy, to which Vinciane Despret also contributed, one on sheep, one on wolves.

PERFORMATIK2013 - John Wood and Paul Harrison are sometimes described as the artistic equivalent of Laurel & Hardy. Their short videos examine the relationship between the human figure and its surroundings. In their playful actions they revel in the comical consequences of standing still, gravity and moving bodies.

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.

PERFORMATIK2013 - Visual artist Jimmy Robert and choreographer Maria Hassabi will present an extended version of their collaborative work, Counter-relief. Hassabi’s choreographic experience directs and experiments with various ways in which the body engages with the established formal elements from Robert’s previous iterations: a black and white 16mm film, a collection of wooden planks, and a non-linear abstract text. Following the performance, these elements remain precisely in the place they were left, revealing a movement-inscribed installation.

PERFORMATIK2013 -
The artist Sarah van Lamsweerde started tattooing the map of the world on apples some time ago. She wanted to make the world shrink. This all had to do with a broken heart, but equally with globalization and the economic fiasco. The tattooed apples, at various stages of shrinkage and in several forms, can be seen at a number of Performatik locations.

The intention behind nothing’s for something is to make the
hidden moments in life visible and expose the reality behind the visible
world. Their sources of inspiration are Paul Klee, who danced while he
painted, Rainer Maria Rilke, the perfectionist of form and method, and
Georges Perec, the master of stories of everyday life. In nothing’s for something,
Avdal and Shinozaki go back to their roots and allow the experiences of
their site-specific projects to permeate this production for larger
theatres.

The fresco ‘Porte de Namur ! – Porte de l’Amour ?’ by artist Chéri
Samba represents an imaginary gathering of members of the local
community on the Chaussée d’Ixelles in Brussels, near Porte de Namur.
Since it was first exhibited in 2002, this image has been widely
disseminated and has sparked a great deal of controversy. On 25 June
2011 this fictitious scene will become reality, as the 80 or so people
who posed for the artist create a tableau vivant in the very place where
the painting was originally conceived.

Apainting by Lucas Devriendt, was the inspiration for Performance of A Portrait. In it the painter and his model, the dancer Vincent Dunoyer, looked back on their collaboration. The painting and the performance have now resulted in Pairforming, a collection of videos, dances, photos and drawings.

This new circuit performance by the theatre-maker and artist Kris Verdonck exudes the atmosphere of Franz Kafka’s writing and of the German expressionist film. We recognise several of his recurring themes: the Unheimlichkeit of the world, the tension between man and machine, between the living being and dead material.

Christoph De Boeck approaches sound as a visual and tactile medium. His interactive installation Steel Sky confronts the visitor with an acoustic representation of his electrical brain activities : a ceiling of steel segments responds to his state of consciousness in real time. The intimate topography of the cerebral cortex of each person walking under the roof, is mirrored as pins hit different locations on a matrix of steel in shifting rhythms and combinations.
