Time Loop is a physical thought exercise in which we travel through time together. We meet the parents of the parents of our parents. In other words, we take a deep dive into the past. But we also travel to the future: to the children of the children of our children. What questions would you like to ask your ancestors and descendants?

Diederik and Anna have been investigating the future for about two years. To imagine different futures, they learned many tricks and methods, sometimes magical, sometimes scientific. Now, the time has come for them to ask some help from children. Come find clues, dig tracks, and sniff the future – al while playing of course.

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.

Fri 04.12 - Sun 06.12.20

Advertising, film, magazines, the internet: we are constantly surrounded by images of sexualized bodies that display the intimate and the erogenous. Flesh, fluids, skin, breasts and asses belong to our everyday surroundings. The Blue Piece is a museum version of Mette Ingvartsen’s to come (2005), performed by two dancers at KANAL – Centre Pompidou.

In 2016, Beyoncé unleashed her music video Hold Up on the world. It was remarkably similar to the 1997 video work Ever is Over All by Pipilotti Rist. In a dreamlike, associative performance, the young makers at buren playfully subvert the clichés that continue to dominate representations of women.
