PERFORMATIK 2015 DOUBLE BILL - Body Not Fit For Purpose is the first overtly political work of choreographer Jonathan Burrows and musician Matteo Fargion. Its starting point is the uselessness of dancing to express anything of any real concern and at the same time the inherent, gloriously foolish radicality of the attempt. With sequenza, artist Manon de Boer and violinist and composer George van Dam present a programme of live performances and films around four compositions for solo violin

Wed 19.01.11

For two years the Austrian film-maker Nikolaus Geyrhalter focused his camera on the European food industry to show us what happens to our food before it reaches us. Geyrhalter deliberately does not comment, but allows the images to speak for themselves by focusing only on the monotonous drone of engines. What price are we willing to pay for our daily bread? The Antwerp band DAAU composed a soundtrack for Our Daily Bread and plays this live at the screening.

Fri 03.04 - Sat 04.04.09

Russia in 1920: the artistic and social revolution are flourishing but the bewilderment is total when Stalin’s merciless trials start. The lyrics in this musical theatre show consist of a literal transcription of the final minutes in the trial of Fyodor Bukharin interwoven with extracts from the work of Daniil Harms, another victim of Stalin’s terror. William Kentridge is responsible for the animated film and the directing, and François Sarhan, whose fantastic L’Nfer was performed at the Kaaitheater earlier in the season, wrote the music.

Waste and excess seem to be fundamental to modern man’s definition of himself. Can we turn our urge to waste in a more immaterial direction? And can art, as a form of symbolic waste, play a part in this?

Since the legendary Chambres d’Amis (Ghent, 1986), art, and increasingly live art, has sought out the intimate setting of the private home. In Intimate Parcours you can see performances, installations and visual work by 14 artists. You start out from the Kaaitheater, visit private lofts and flats and end up at the Beursschouwburg. The whole route takes about 2,5 hours.
