Fri 09.10 - Sat 10.10.20

Each evening Khadija El Kharraz Alami invites somebody else on stage. A performer, artist, actor, writer, human being, dancer... always a woman. You witness their first meeting. Re-claiming Space is an exploration of the space of womanhood and how to transcend it. Khadija’s work process is characterized by leaving certain things undetermined, so the performance takes shape onstage.

When the 21-year-old Etouri undergoes nose surgery, she unexpectedly holds up a mirror to her mother Christine and grandmother Christa. Métisse is a tragi-comic, musical production about the existential question of ‘half-blood children’ since the 1960s. The perspectives of three generations of women, each with darker skin than the last, coalesce and reveal a piece of the hidden past and present.

Tue 24.11 - Wed 25.11.20

Gravity, inertia, resistance, momentum, action, and reaction. These are the five fundamental mechanical principles of movement we must control in order to walk and dance. Forces of Nature follows the movements of a complex organism that is constituted of five dancers, each with their own energy and ideas. From their negotiations and questions flows a score.

In 1981, Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel performed their legendary charity concert in Central Park, New York: a musical feast of friendship and solidarity. the two singers now avoid one another as much as possible. More even: they had already split at the time of that concert. Simon, Garfunkel, My Sister and Me is the ultimate re-enactment of the concert, a show about rivalry in all its forms.

‘How are you now?’ It is with this question that Rabot 2 begins. In 2010, Simon Allemeersch installed his workshop in one of the dilapidated social housing blocks in the Rabot neighbourhood in Ghent. Now he has made Rabot 2, in which he looks up the people he collaborated with at the time. Starting from individual testimonials, he zooms out to a bigger story about private and public wealth.
