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…

Imagine a tower of countless lamps and light sources. It comes to life buzzing, creaking and crackling to the rhythm of switching sounds. Named after the light designer Bruno Pocheron, BRUNO brings together series of dances oscillating between figuration and abstraction with three dancers trying on their movements as if they were clothes: every touch, every gesture, however fugitive, forever printed.

learning day

Sun 13.03.22

bodies of knowledge (BOK) considers the city as a rich source of valuable knowledge. Every passer- by could teach you something from their own background and life-experiences. BOK seeks to share this invisibilized or suppressed knowledge through oral transmission, that potentially could give rise to a socially more just society. The Big BOK Multiplication tells the story of one and a half year of BOK in Brussels. It's the gathering of a learning community, and an encounter with a living corpus of non-dominant knowledge. Feel welcome to join and learn along.

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.

Vera Tussing invites the string quartet Quatuor MP4 to join four dancers onstage for a playful encounter between movement and sound. The four musicians play passages from various quartets by Franz Schubert, Anton Dvorak and Florence Price as well as contemporary works by Georg Friedrich Haas and Caroline Shaw. At the point where the orbits of dance and music intersect, you are invited to enter the kaleidoscopic score. Lend a hand, or an arm!

What if the sounds from your living environment start to disappear? David Weber-Krebs invites you to listen collectively to a world that increasingly is going silent. Accompanied by composer Pali Meursault, a group of young storytellers will lead you through a slow process that leads to silence. Until there are no more stories to tell.

In this playful sci-fi park, the buren collective analyses the social and economic forces that regulate ‘free time’ and ‘work’ in our Western society. In an associative narrative, the makers link personal memories to the history of free time and labour, and to the evolution of women’s labour in Belgium and abroad.

The Waves is a ritual, a manifesto, an immersive experience in which feminine beauty, vulnerability and pain are central. On the wave of a feminine energy, a physical space is created in which the five players dare to look traumas of oppression and abuse of power in the eye and finally bury them and leave them behind. An urgent and uncompromising theatrical experience.
