Fri 22.06 - Sun 24.06.18

To close the season, the occasional collective Lucinda Ra is organizing an open studio for three days. You are free to come in and out, join the conversations, or just to listen and watch the music, animated films, short presentations, and visual work. The kitchen – which forms the heart of the project – will be open throughout and is free. You can contribute your own ingredients: a ticket for Grondwerk costs 250 grams of food.

The young director Lisaboa Houbrechts is tackling Hamlet. She has opted for the female perspective, focusing on the destructive relationship between Hamlet and his mother Queen Gertrude. Houbrechts primarily aims to illustrate Gertrude’s innocence and thus to show the iconic play in a radically different light.

Wed 28.11 - Thu 29.11.18

Last season, Tibaldus presented an energetic adaptation of Yvonne, Princess of Burgundy by Witold Gombrowicz at Kaaitheater. They are now staging another play by the Polish author. Tibaldus enhances the musicality of Gombrowicz’ play by connecting textual motifs with Flemish polyphonic melodies. They are again presenting a surprising take on an unconventional repertoire!

Everybody will remember the photos and videos showing iconoclasts in Iraq and Syria destroying iconic monuments. These images do not only show destruction, but especially also an aspect of strategic warfare. All Inclusive juxtaposes art and war and tourists and refugees, and connects reality and imagination. This production will guide you through an imagined universe – an extension of the battlefield – where reality hits back.

Thu 28.02 - Fri 01.03.19

The artistic paths of Marc Vanrunxt and Jan Martens have crossed several times, and they are now coalescing in a solo for Jan. Vanrunxt was there in the early eighties, at the cradle of the innovative dance wave in Flanders. A few generations later, Jan Martens is adding great verve to the succession and continuation of this wave. In lostmovements, they explore lost and forgotten movements.

Thu 04.04 - Fri 05.04.19

Can dance be a tool to imagine the future? Can you make science fiction with choreography?  Starting from the abstract drawings of Valery Pavlovich Lamakh, artist-in-residence Michiel Vandevelde has created an alienating choreography that offers you a glimpse of a possible future. Whether this future looks utopic or dystopic depends on how you look at it.
