With In Many Hands, McIntosh dives into a tactile and multi-sensory world. She invites you to test, touch, listen and smell. She turns her back on the stage and opts for a series of sensory ‘situations’ which give you free rein to experiment. Take your time to explore and follow your nose!

Thu 30.03 - Sun 02.04.17

How do we envision the art spaces of tomorrow? How can we reshape these meeting places and laboratories for coexistence? The artists of Damaged Goods set up camp in a former factory in Molenbeek – housing the Decoratelier of scenographer Jozef Wouters – to formulate some physical answers to these questions.

Can light be a compositional building block? The Liquid Room Series radically questions the classical concert model. The audience is free to move around among the various stages set up in the dismantled hall of the Kaaitheater. Immerse yourself in a pure experience of sound and light!

Flood is a choreography of entrances and exits. In the midst of our throwaway society and the flood of new technologies and ideas, Daniel Linehan questions the cultural domination of the new. At the same time, he considers what is disappearing, and what is becoming superfluous at an ever-faster pace.

When Vincent Dunoyer began to create performances himself it struck him that dance industry professionals would always ask him the same thing. ‘Can you send us a DVD of the performance?’ In DVD DVD he creates a montage of personal and professional memories, like a lecture interspersed with video and dance. Both intimate and universal!

Every era has its own wonders of the world: an impossible idea that then goes on to be actually built, and which is larger and more impressive than anything we have previously known. Mriziga weighs up two standards against one another: the built world, created to impress; and the ultimate wonder of the world: the human body itself.

What would hell look like today? The 500th anniversary of the death of Hieronymus Bosch, made Vasco Mendonça, Kris Verdonck and Dimitri Verhulst think. They quickly arrived at the beaches of Lampedusa: a place where while tourists were sunbathing refugees were washed up on the beach. The false paradise of the resorts and the Boschian hell on earth seamlessly flow into each other.
