KAREL BURSSENS' NEW PROJECT CURRENTS

Currents unfolds in two parts, as an installation and a performance. The installation explores the simplest of forms, a line, turned into a light sculpture. Through repetition, it defines not only rhythm, space and light, but also the movements of dancer Mario Barrantes Espinoza. He will meet and confront the moving sculpture in an effort to reconfigure the relationship between man and machine. On 26 & 27.09, Currents will go into premiere at Vooruit during the Festival van de architectuur.
