Bernard Van Eeghem & Catherine Graindorge & Katja Dreyer: kayak

For their new stage production Kayak-performers Bernard Van Eeghem, Catherine Graindorge and Katja Dreyer team up as a threesome for the first time. Kayak is their first collaborative research on the notion of falling and failing. The reckless kayak sea-travel by Andrew McAuley, the artistic conception of falling by Dutch artist Bas Jan Ader and Philippe Petit's rope dancing, guide them through their theatrical quest. The trio balances as equilibrists on the thin line between earnest and lightheartedness, philosophy and proverbial wisdom.

Bernard delves deeper into Fernando Pessoa's Ode Marítima by researching how this epic poem can be translated into (moving) images. During her research, Dolores invites fellow artists to encounter her and props from previous pieces, guided by Martha Nussbaum's acclaimed work The Fragility of Goodness: Luck and Ethics in Greek Tragedy and Philosophy.
