SPARE TIME WORK musically explores thoughts and ideas on (reproductive) labour and leisure. Drenched in different colour spheres, characters like Adult Hood and Young, Grown Woman and Office Worker produce a variety of (power)relations, economical desires and social realities.

Kate McIntosh's latest performance throws the work of several writers, composers and performers into the mix. Surrender to exhilarating polyrhythmic beats and the raw energy of layered voices. To Speak Light Pours Out is an invitation to enjoy the sharp energies of positive disruption and new possibilities. A shout-out to the lust for transformation, resistance and new forms of being!

Magical and Elastic
Fri 25.02 - Sat 26.02.22

Whether you want to call Magical and Elastic a musical, deconstructed musical or an anti-musical doesn't really matter. Music, choreography, images and language are dependent on each other. This performance is a space where you see to listen and listen to see. Expect a magical performance where a narrative emerges from an image, a choreography is created thanks to the music, and the music starts from the words…

Sat 10.07.21

A cosy evening with music, visuals and poetry, in which Monica Kamara invites fellow female artists to share their experiences of getting hurt and the healing process that follows. Because healing is a process which happens within, but does not have to be done alone.

Inspired by insects, climate marches and airplane traffic coming to a halt, the leitmotif in this concert/performance is not the loud collective chant, but the experience that each individual – like a link in a chain – can set a vortex of sounds in motion. In newpolyphonies, four singers of HYOID join forces with 15 performers in a curious high mass about little differences with big impact.

By any beats necessary: Palestine

By any beats necessary: Palestine
Sat 05.06.21

The new wave of Israeli violence against the inhabitants of the Palestinian territories deserves a response. By bombing Palestinian civilians, Israel again (and with the support of the US) tries to crush resistance. But the Palestinians continue to fight for their liberation. This edition of By any Beats necessary is about that resistance by artists and activists. Because here in Belgium too, decolonisation means nothing without the liberation of Palestine.

What might the musical heritage of polyphony mean today? Myriam Van Imschoot was inspired by insects, climate marches and the recent protests against budget cuts in the arts and civil society. A group of Brussels-based singers takes to the stage with the vocal ensemble HYOID. United, they move through mass singing, often on the edge of audibility.

SAFE
Sat 26.09 - Sat 26.09.20

SAFE premiered in the Kaaistudios in 2018, long before the corona-crisis. Today, Julie Pfleiderer’s performance feels strangely consistent with our lives. The current pandemic is causing waves of bacillophobia and fear of infection in our society. Based on Todd Haynes’ film Safe (1995) – in which a woman suffers increasingly intense allergic reactions – Ictus and Julie Pfleiderer sketch a picture of contemporary hypersensitivity. Join an immersive journey that will stimulate all your senses!

New Joy
Thu 30.05 - Sat 01.06.19

Eleanor Bauer loves playing with the codes and concepts of contemporary dance. In New Joy, she confronts the post-truth age: this dataistic cyber-musical knocks straight through the boundaries of various registers. From body language and spoken language to computer language and back again, from emotional to artificial intelligence, from movement to sound. Along with composer Chris Peck, Bauer engages all of your senses in her search for meaning and hidden implications.

Mette Edvardsen & Matteo Fargion

Penelope Sleeps

Penelope Sleeps
Penelope Sleeps
Fri 10.05 - Tue 14.05.19

In her new creation, Mette Edvardsen explores interfaces with opera, flanked by composer and performer Matteo Fargion. Together, they deconstruct the mythological figure of Penelope, the woman who spent years waiting for her husband Odysseus. But her apparent passivity conceals tremendous power. Be whisked away to this intimate, minimalist dream world, where new relationships are forged between women, the world, and the other.
