DANCE SHOWS

TOGETHER ALONE
 

PERPETUUM MOBILE (27).png

13.08 

20h

Together alone is a solo in dancing together, which encounters the individual loneliness with the power of being together.

 

Deprived of all the external concealments and decorations, the two of them return to the primitive in dance and face each other with the most naked selves, in this intimate space and time, they communicate with each other and learn to move forwards thought compromise and cooperation.

Through constant giving and receiving, they explore the invisible border between their seemingly close bodies. By consistently linking up and the separating, they find harmony in conflicts and again trigger conflicts in harmony. 

By unceasingly merging, transferring, destroying and then reconstructing, they eventually face each other's loneliness together.

CREATIONS
MORNING SONG

21.08

14h

Three young women with very distinct characters try to get dressed despite the pitfalls.


This is a play that is joyful, funny, poetic and surprising. Humor is the order of the day, but so is tenderness, discord and benevolence. These three young women are surprised by the public in their nudity as soon as they enter the stage. Their only goal is then to get dressed and to tune up before their departure. Disorder, gags, mischief or misunderstandings, our characters are determined to pursue their goal at all costs. As the play progresses, the audience will get to know our three protagonists with their strong personalities. One is rather maternal, the other a killjoy, while the last one is quite naive and clownish. These characters influence the staging and participate in the twists and turns of the play.

Between contemporary dance, physical theater, dance-theater and acrobatics.

CREATIONS
PHANTASTICUS SUITE

PERPETUUM MOBILE (35).png

26.08

20h

Suite of dances; suite of moments.
The scenes follow one another and the bodies intertwine.
Music and dance fill the space, mingle and undulate together.

Movements and sounds converse in intimacy


For this first creation, the Trio Résonances seizes the music of the German violinist of the end of the XVIIth century J. J. WALTHER in order to incarnate it in an original way.

Their explorations of the Suite for violin n°1 in D minor bring a more personal dimension and make it a work of today. The piece is the starting point of a journey that plunges the spectator into the stylus phantasticus - a baroque aesthetic combining invention, virtuosity and surprise effects - during which the suite of dances is embellished with improvised moments and solo pieces. The dance meets the violin and the violone by venturing into the baroque gestures and, above all, into the textures of a universe enamelled with classical dance, hip-hop and jazz.

A complicit dialogue is created, styles and periods intermingle and a universe is formed, poetic and intimate where music is no longer a concert but a show.

20h

Are There two people? the same place? What can determine the dimensions of time and space? The other side of an alternative dimension, or may be the games of his own psyche, makes him feel how vulnerable his existence is, just because he doesn't feel his actions as his own, in the darkness and loneliness of his house, and the haunting call.

About

Being born and discovering.

Growing up and learning.

Being mature and sabotaging.

Getting older and not understanding why.

Carrying the heavy backpack all along.

 

About

Being kind. To the child. To you.

And maybe understanding why.

RESONANCE

PERPETUUM MOBILE (28).png

19.08

20h

"Onko chishin" is a Japanese expression that describes an attempt to discover new things by studying the past. This phrase informs the mission that Miki Orihara, former principal dancer of the Martha Graham Dance Company, has set for herself in creating the performance series Resonance:

Exploring the Connections Between the Worlds of Modern and Contemporary Dance.

CREATIONS
"IN EACH PASSING MOMENT..."

PERPETUUM MOBILE (33).png

21.08

14h

IN EACH PASSING MOMENT… was inspired by trying to understand a broad range of interpersonal relationships through a physics concept; the arrow of time.

 

The arrow of time describes the perceived unidirectionality of time and how, at a microscopic level, all material is moving toward an increasingly disorderly state. Relationships, too, seem to adhere to this principle of imminent entropy. We are bound to loss just as we are bound to time; but the sensitive, vulnerable, and sometimes even brutal parts of relationships we hold onto seem to circumvent time's arrow. While family members, significant others, friends, and acquaintances inevitably come in and out of our lives, the imprint they leave is enduring; pointing to the central question of this work, are we truly tied to the arrow of time?

CREATIONS
"There was a time when leaves were green, the sky was blue and roses were red"

20h

"Did we really do everything we could? What’s the reason behind the things we do? Are you able to survive without being corrupted?

Or will the story repeat over and over again, and will it, until we understand what really matters? Is there worth in understanding where we come from?"

CREATIONS
uesugi

PERPETUUM MOBILE (39).png

27.08

20h

A dance in honor of a summer that has ended,
Friends left and lost, hoping to meet again,
Dreams pursued, and desires unfulfilled.
To keep hope
is to contemplate a cedar in a high place
or to be the cedar
and looking down as the world passes elegantly by, but stuck in one place.
Even if he wanted to, he can't express it.

TRIBUTE

PERPETUUM MOBILE (29).png

20.08

20h

Each dancer is a pop star directly inspired by monuments of pop music. The marble of the costumes weaves the link between the eternity of the idol and the movement of each dancer. TRIBUTE shows the joy of the teenager who dances and sings freely to the music of his favorite Pop stars. Their music touches us at different moments of our lives and is part of our history, our identity. And above all, they invite us to do what we love most: dance. With TRIBUTE, DE GENOTEN are in the street, close to their audience, to relive with them these extraordinary lives: Let's dance!

14h

From the age of 0 to 28, I met several dances. They and I got along more or less well. We stayed together for hours, sometimes years. Some have never left me and stick to me. Others, at first sight, took their legs to their neck.

In this first solo, I am interested in the notion of the body as an interface of encounter and construction of different gestural representations. What are these dances that cross us and how do they meet our bodies?

On the stage, I decide to place my body at the intersection of the movements I have crossed during my journey. Whether they have been truly experienced, fantasized or totally projected onto me, these different gestural materials will be welcomed within the space that this solo proposes to open.

CREATIONS
STORIES & NONSENSE

PERPETUUM MOBILE (37).png

26.08

20h

Created in Central Park during the midst of the pandemic, Stories & Nonsense is an invitation to dream, remember,  smile and to feel. 

 

From a stark and minimal setting, the piece takes the audience through an imaginary journey where playfulness and challenges meet. Boundaries become open doors and a ladybug hums from a forgotten attic in the light of a Sunday afternoon. 


Created as a reflection of solitude, and how we paint our dreamscapes inside of realities,  Stories & Nonsense ultimately celebrates the infinite joy and richness of human relationships.

CREATIONS

27.08

20h

Every interaction starts with a movement, ours is unique. Unique in the interaction.

We share our passion through dance, but mostly through space.

Our intense connection, pushed to the limit, is broken by discontinuity.

Perhaps we will find something unique in our disconnection.

DU BATTEMENT
DES JOURS

PERPETUUM MOBILE (45).png

24.08

20h

The result of a constant dialogue between image, dance and text,

 

Du battement des jours offers a sensitive immersion in a universe orchestrating, with textures and contrasts, daily life both lived and dreamed. Poetry, imagination and aesthetics characterize this short film that takes the spectator on a quest that is both intimate and collective: that of rhythm.

Du battement des jours is the story, in images, in movement and in words, of three young women in search of rhythm.

With the passion and powerlessness of a child, Maya strives to make her will prevail over the course of things. Incisive and mechanical, Apolline has joined the order of the Great City and abhors her fellow creatures. Romane, lost between two ages and wounded, has withdrawn into a world populated by memories and has become a stranger to her own reality.

In turn, then together, these characters are confronted with their impossibilities, learn to overcome them and gradually find the path to their freedom. In a poetic world at the edge of imagination and reality, Marilou accompanies them in their escapes.

ODE À DEMAIN

86.png

24.08

20h

How to find the essential? What allows us to leave passivity, to explode the expectations of the norm, to place ourselves in the right?

We have to lose our footing in order to regain our balance. It is this vital impulse towards emancipation that Ode to Tomorrow is about. 

Emancipation as a path towards oneself, as a return to the essence, but also as the collective construction of a sustainable future for us and the environment in which we evolve.

This requires perseverance, but also creativity, collaboration and empathy to think, together, of a new world. 

A musical, dance and film work by Brussels artists with a strong environmental and societal commitment. After a long period without the possibility to practice their activity, these artists propose a tribute to Art and freedom. They remind us how human collaboration can be a vector of renewal, beauty and meaning in a sclerotic world that is struggling to reform itself.

To Whom It May Concern

24.08 

20h

To whom it may concern,

Spencer is dead, lying on a wet restaurant floor surrounded by broken glass. No-one in sight, only the open window blowing in the winds of doubt, guilt and circumstance. Six truly unique characters, intertwined by all being in the wrong place at the wrong time, plead their innocence through unconventional language, actions and dance movements while seemingly implementing the other suspects
in this unusual crime narrative. Can you solve the riddles and unlock the
mysteries to find the truth about what happened?


Yours sincerely,


The Owner, The Waitress, The Chef, The French Lady, The Delivery Guy & The Stranger

iuSui is an ode to the visceral power of beauty, nature, freedom,
and the vulnerability of the human psyche. You will be taken on an
aesthetic and kinaesthetic voyage to what might be a very tangible place
on earth or the most hidden site within the mind. From dark underwater
depths to soaring above the clouds of Sweden, our female protagonist
explores what it means to be human.
