#danceday

Dance Day is a initiative by Flemish and Brussels dance organisations to make a broader public more aware of contemporary dance and thereby spotlight Belgium’s vigorous dance culture. Dance has always been closely associated with the history of the Kaaitheater – it’s in our DNA. The programme takes a look at the range of dance today: from virtuoso dance to performance art.

Jonathan Burrows, dancer and choreographer. Matteo Fargion, musician and composer. Always the two of them… but not this time! They invite four local artists – Mette Edvardsen, Dounia Mahammed, Lili Rampre and Andros Zins-Browne – to address the subject of ‘the possibility and impossibility of community’. The ingredients? 72 clay objects created by the performers, group singing and Indian drone sounds on smartphones.

Anneleen shares some tools she worked with when creating The moon is the moon is the moon. These tools are not based on technique, but on imagination and sensations. Guided improvisations allow you to discover your personal movement language and to create simple dance phrases that are unique to your body. No dance experience required!

The moon is the moon is the moon deconstructs the structure of a dance trio and exposes its building blocks. Just like the preparatory sketches for a painting, the performance begins with various perspectives and movements. The individual layers that you discover in the choreography invite you to see things in new ways.

How does your perception of a dance or music sequence change when it is combined with a different choreography or a different musical composition? What meanings, impressions and images are conjured, and what unexpected relationships to listening and looking are stirred?

Within the context of Dance Day, Mette Ingvartsen gives a lecture on the relationship between sexuality, pleasure, performance, and economy. She reflects upon the way borders between private and public space are dissolving and how this process is fueled by an increasing demand for self-performance and self-exposure.
