Golem

De Warande,
Turnhout, Belgium

According to Jewish legend, a golem is a figure made from dust or clay by a man of learning and brought to life by means of a ritual incantation. The golem was intended as an assistant to its human creator, as a companion or protector of the latter's threatened community. But the experiment gets out of hand, and the creature turns against its creator.

Verein zur Aufhebung des Notwendigen - a hundred wars to world peace

Théâtre d'Arles,
Arles, France

Verein zur Aufhebung des Notwendigen is a dinner and it is about democracy. Not democracy as institutional engineering for mass organisation, but democracy as something we internalize, as individuals, at the level of our day to day existence. It is about democracy as the realisation of our individual and collective desires.

Andros Zins-Browne / The Great Indoors & Karthik Pandian

Atlas Revisited

Kaaistudio's,
Brussels, Belgium

In 2012, visual artist Karthik Pandian and choreographer Andros Zins-Browne visited the Atlas Film Studios in the desert of Ouarzazate, Morocco. There, in front of film sets from previous Hollywood productions, they hired a group of studio camels and tried to persuade them to dance. The result of this endeavor can be seen in their 2014 video Atlas/Inserts - a choreography that casts the camel both as a political animal and a technology of movement.

Omertà

Beursschouwburg,
Brussels, Belgium

Look, Stefanie Claes and Bernard Van Eeghem speak with paint. At the far ends of their arms they are singing. Because everyone who stood in between them, has been long gone. Who still knows their names? Where are the roots of unknown angers hiding? Who interrogates the magma of the boiling lava swirling? Who spares the high viscosity? Who is made of wood? Who knows the distance? Who knows the resistance? Who who? That's life. And it only lasts for a moment. Be there.

Undertone

Weld,
Stockholm, Sweden

Undertone is a choreography that focuses on the potentials of sensory perception of the audience. Stemming from the interest to challenge spectatorship and destabilize the convention of watching performance, Undertone invites the audience in a complete dark space to participate in an orchestration of fictional spaces. Hereby, the performance prioritizes mechanisms of perception other than vision by proposing an immersive experience of different kinds of stimuli.

Oh Magic

Oh Magic wanders through the wonders of theatrical magic. It is that mysterious unnamable thing we sometimes have the chance to encounter in a piece.

Somewhere between freak and fascination, Simon Mayer and his performers seek for the answers both in technological manipulation and organic oracles.

CONCERT

Christina Vantzou / Dj Maurice Ravel , Moana

Sunday 14 May at noon, Netwerk - Aalst.

Spend your sunday afternoon in Aalst (Belgium) with an exclusive concert by Christina, an Amercian composer, graphic designer and video artist who lives and works in Brussels. Her musical work is known from an earlier collaborative project The Dead Texan together with Adam Witzie (Stars of the Lid). Ever since, she created three solo albums of orchestral ambient music for the music label Kranky. Her instrumental electro-acoustic music, influenced by classic and minimalistic traditions, refers to peers such as Jóhan Jóhansson, Ólafur Arnalds of Dustin O'Halloran. Her albums are often supported by dreamy shortfilms.
