What would happen if we were to abandon verticality after centuries of walking upright? This question is the starting point of Laurent Chétouane’s new creation. Two male and one female dancer search for new equilibriums in a disjointed setting. A violinist accompanies them live onstage with Bach’s Partita for Violin no. 1 in B-minor.

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.

Benoît Lachambre again asks you to listen to your senses and genuinely to experience the consciousness of your body. Borders between dance and movement gradually blur when a glance, a movement, or the touch of someone in the audience continues to resonate in the choreography.

As soon as you walk into House, you will discover things that usually remain hidden behind façades. Wearing headphones, you can explore the space at your own pace. Inne Goris has created a deeply personal installation/production for both adults and children about the dark corners of life. And about how everyone tries to deal with them in their own way.

Wed 21.02 - Thu 22.02.18

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?

Galop tells the bizarre story of the life cycle of a body in ten tableaux. Dolores Bouckaert’s co-stars in this solo are a bed, ten record players, and – via film and audio – a fast and powerful horse. The two are one another’s opposites until they become interchangeable, when the horse’ gallop coincides with the rhythm of her heartbeat.

La Piscine is a collective project that gathers different artistic practices and works addressed to a single spectator. Going from a walk with the eyes closed, to a conversation, to a bath, a single spectator and one of the artists will tune to each other to draw a singular path into Les Bains du Centre – at the heart of the Marolles.

Mister Linh’s Little Girl

production

Sun 14.01 - Sun 14.01.18

Seeking a better future for his grandchild, Mister Linh flees from a war-torn country. Koen De Sutter tells the story with all the means he has at his disposal: text, words, images, music, sound, projections... But this is also a play about loneliness, about the desire to communicate with the other and not least with the audience. Are we inside the narrator’s head? Are Mister Linh and Mister Bark voices in his own head?
