Thu 16.01 - Sat 18.01.20

In MEMENTO MORI!, documentary filmmaker and visual artist Els Dietvorst brings two solos together. The first is performed by Dirk Roofthooft, one of Flanders’ most iconic actors, the second by the Brussels-based actress Aurelie Di Marino. The first monologue mirrors the second. As a diptych, they reflect on themes such as individualism, globalization and migration, as well as the alienation and disenchanted world to which they lead.

We live in an age in which human activity has a profound impact on our physical and ecological surroundings. Nevertheless, these transformations often go unseen. How can we create stories, aesthetics, and spaces of experience to deal with this situation reflectively and critically? Looking for answers, David Weber-Krebs and Jeroen Peeters install a series of hybrid artistic and theoretical interventions in a performative setting.

Fri 15.12 - Sat 16.12.17

What happens exactly when we fall asleep? What is it like to be a viewer watching other people fall asleep in a theatre, to witness this most intimate act? The Guardians of Sleep is a collective attempt to withdraw in a world that is always ‘switched on’ – and where an ‘off’ button simply doesn’t seem to exist.

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.

What is nature saying to us? Myriam Van Imschoot carried out research in a zoo, lay down beside a motorway with a trilling tuning fork, and discovered birds in the woods whose songs imitated chainsaws and ring tones. What Nature Says is a radiophonic performance that slowly calls into question your ideas about human beings, nature and machines.

Worktable is an invitation to destroy everyday objects. Armed with a pair of safety glasses and a range of tools, you can brutally hack to pieces or gently dismantle everyday objects.  There is no question of rubbish: further instructions, other spaces and other actions follow. There’s work to be done!

Syden means ‘South’ in all the Scandinavian languages. It evokes a Southern holiday destination: warm, cheap and with every amenity. The musician and composer Niko Hafkenscheid, the visual artist Hedvig Biong and the film-maker Pablo Castilla explore the mystery, authenticity and perversity of this parallel universe.

For ten years now, we have all been turning out the lights together during the annual Earth Hour. In Tonight, Lights Out!, David Weber-Krebs does the same thing: not on a worldwide scale but with a group of sixty people in a theatre space.
