An OPEN EXCHANGE WITH CHRISTINA VANTZOU

Electro-acoustic composer Christina Vantzou works on the new project N°5 during her residency at STUK and presents the first results during an intimate try-out on 24.01. For her upcoming album N°5, Vantzou integrates sound, space and architecture into a multi-dimensional installation-performance.

CURRENTS BY KAREL BURSSENS

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 meets and confronts the moving sculpture in an effort to reconfigure the relationship between man and machine. On 05 & 06.02, Brakke Grond will host Currents during Beyond the Black Box.
