The boundary between spectator and performer fades

Thu 01.01 - Sat 03.10.20

Studio Cité orients, directs, diverts and distorts your view of the world. Step inside a driving mirror cart by yourself, form a dancing circle with your fellow audience members, or stand on the side-lines watching how people with periscopic masks try to find their way. Benjamin Vandewalle organizes an artistic funfair that offers unexpected experiences on Brussels’ squares.

Tue 21.01 - Wed 22.01.20

Across the span of a decade and a half, Boyzie Cekwana and Danya Hammoud have kept a nodding acknowledgement of each other’s trajectories and strategies for survival. Now they come together so they can stand, one next to the other, one on top of the other, turning, bending and entangling around each other. 'We come together so we can both reach down to the top of our boots and take out our bootlegged goods, our smuggled stories.'

In the late 1920s, Nâzım Hikmet introduced free verse to Turkish poetry, and he was thus the first modern Turkish poet. He wrote the majority of Human Landscapes, his magnum opus, while in prison. The five hundred-page epic was only published posthumously, divided into five ‘books’. Michiel Vandevelde staged Book I last year, commissioned by steierische herbst. Book II now follows.

deufert&plischke are coming to Brussels for three weeks to collect ‘letters to dance’. To end the project with a bang, they are inviting you to a veritable Bal Populaire. The collection of favourite dance moves is the basis for a great party with live music. While everybody dances, you will hear and see a selection of the best ‘Letters to Dance’.

Sat 16.03 - Sun 17.03.19

‘Death deserves our attention, not our fear. In this work, I hope to create a space in which we as a group can explore situations in which people die together.’ You take part in a physically performed thought experiment: with respect for the often true stories on which the scenes are based, human connections are unraveled and revealed.

THIS CAN'T HAPPEN
THIS CAN'T HAPPEN
Thu 29.03.18

In a stimulating theatrical game, you as the audience explore the limits of the imaginable, beyond what is true, good, or politically correct. Can the most cheerful, strange, improbable, and wild fantasies influence the world that we share together? The stakes in the game? To make time and space for our own imagination.

Wed 07.02 - Fri 09.02.18

Benoît Lachambre again asks you to listen to your senses and genuinely to experience the consciousness of your body. Borders between dance and movement gradually blur when a glance, a movement, or the touch of someone in the audience continues to resonate in the choreography.

The THING

The THING
Mon 25.09 - Fri 06.10.17

THE THING is an automated and hybrid form consisting of four episodes, in between performance, workshop, and journey. The only ones present are you, a group of 8 to 12 people who open a suitcase and follow a wild mix of different triggers as a guide. Make a leap of faith!
