Accords

dance
29—30.01.2011

Dance and music

Music plays an essential role in ZOO’s work. In Accords, the dancers graft onto musical pieces as if they were instruments, the music being made ‘visible’ by a complex network of individual and supra-individual actions and reactions. The spectators might think they are seeing a choreography written to music. Yet the process of creating movement – entirely improvised – turns out to be radically different. It is a process based on individual freedom and permanent attention being paid to others. Thomas Hauert chooses to rely on the intuitive intelligence of the body and the group.

• Thomas Hauert (1967, Switzerland) lives and works in Brussels. Since he founded his company ZOO in 1997, he has, both at home and abroad, shown himself to be a choreographer with a voice of his own. Accords had its Belgian première at the Kaaitheater during the Kunstenfestivaldesarts 2008.

Matinee Kadee on Sunday, January 30th

Matinee Kadee are 5 fun children’s workshops during 5 Sunday matinees for parents: while you enjoy the performance in the theatre, the children take over the rest of the Kaaitheater building. The 4 to 12s let down their hair in workshops that are both challenging and fun; younger brothers or sisters are looked after in a cosy room.

The workshop is free; you only have to buy a ticket for the performance. As there is only a limited number of places for the workshops it is necessary to book in advance ! Call 02 201 59 59 or send an e-mail to tickets@kaaitheater.be.

On Sunday, January 30th, we organize a Bal Moderne workshop: the children learn some fun dances that they will never forget.
