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 is performed by the Brussels-based actress Aurelie Di Marino. You can expect a theatre evening about fragility and transience, but also about universal themes like individualization, globalization, the relationship between humanity and nature, and migration.

What happens on a fully booked airplane of people who do not know each other when it becomes clear that it is going to crash? Do the passengers become isolated within themselves or do they turn to one another for support? In Dying Together, you will take part in a physically performed thought experiment. A gradually changing constellation of people – and the physical relationships between them – creates a colourful pallet of possible relationships.

This season, Decoratelier Jozef Wouters is collaborating with Open Kunstenhuis Globe Aroma to create Underneath Which Rivers Flow. A group of women and men – builders, poets, and dreamers – meet every week at Decoratelier in Molenbeek. In this space, they build stories together, a secret garden full of wormholes to unsuspected worlds.

Fri 29.03 - Sat 30.03.19

Six actors on the stage and only one solo. There are no leading or secondary roles, but six simultaneous interpretations of the same script. How strictly will each actor comply with the stage directions? Will they allow one another a place in the spotlight? The Script simultaneously focuses on the existential loneliness that you sometimes feel in a group. How is it possible to be so similar and yet live ‘side by side’?

How can we say something about the future through the lens of the past? Michiel Vandevelde examines the recent history of western modern and contemporary dance, from Isadora Duncan to Anna Halprin. In five speculative acts about the past from the future, the present is inevitably reflected upon. This way, choreography becomes a form of science-fiction.
