In (Dis)placed interventions, Elly Van Eeghem stimulates your imagination with video footage, voice recordings, music, and colourful projections. She collected all this material over the past several years in various neighbourhoods in Ghent, Paris, Berlin and Montreal. Join her on this trip to what a city is and can be – and be amazed, confused and inspired by the spaces that we share with one another.

Since its première at the Kaaistudios, Radouan Mriziga’s first creation has caused a furore. His very characteristic dance style provokes confrontations between physicality and strict concepts, between the sensual and the rational. Using his own body as a measure, he constructs an architectural form, subtly playing with your expectations.

Every age has its own wonders of the world. An idea of the impossible that gets built anyway, bigger and more impressive than anything that preceded it. In 7, Radouan Mriziga juxtaposes two benchmarks: the constructed world, built to impress, and the ultimate wonder of the world, the human body itself.

Radouan Mriziga explores polyrhythm, a bass rhythm in African music. By looking for the social equivalent of this unusual harmony, this exercise for two dancers reminds us of the necessity and value of difference in the creative process.

Visual artist Fabrice Samyn installs his seven Breath Pieces around a waiting room. Performers do various things that intensify your awareness of time and focus your attention on the fundamental and uncontrollable nature of breathing. Each section follows a consultable protocol that determines the interactions between performers and audience.

How can a mental choreography give you a sense of movement? In Anatomie, Anne Juren creates a movement score for entrails and bodily functions. While you lie on a mat with your eyes closed, she uses her voice to guide you around your body and your mind.

A gleaner walks behind the harvesters and picks up the ears of grain that were left on the field. In AREN, Benjamin Verdonck takes you on a journey to the unproduced or incomplete works in his studio. You can expect to see installations, a cabinet of curiosities, and a miniature theatre.

Jed Martin – the main character in Michel Houellebecq’s The Map and the Territory – was born near Paris in 1975. When he is forty years old, he writes a letter to his dead mother. She was as old as he was then, when she decided to take her own life. The combination of his words and his visual work results in a compelling self-portrait of a contemporary artist.

In this danced dialogue, Thai dancer Pichet Klunchun and Taiwanese dancer Chen Wu-kang reveal themselves to one another and to the audience. With compact portraits of pure movement, they alternately treat themes such as fatherhood, cultural heritage, and self-reliance. In the meantime, percussionist Lazara Rosell Albear adds a third voice.

Dance and choreography leaves traces on your body, and they are often physical and concrete: growing muscles or the trauma of injuries. But the repetition and memory of movements also leave traces. The choreographies of the past continue to dwell in the dancer’s body. In the solo Body of Work, Daniel Linehan explores these traces in his own body.

Two female bodies entwine until they become only one. Or three? Or… none? Where does a body actually begin? A clear question resounds in this duet that both refers to the tropes of the genre but also transcends them. What does it mean nowadays to be two together?

For Chesterfield, Alix Eynaudi and her team were inspired by the leather collection of the Austrian Museum of Folk Life and Folk Art. The dancers apply different leather manipulation techniques to bodies and wares, and develop a maze of signs. Chesterfield is a patchwork poem woven with threads of leather… and all composed to a sensual cadence.
