Any Table Any Room
The (im)possibility of community
Jonathan Burrows, dancer and choreographer. Matteo Fargion, musician and composer. For the past decade, these gentlemen of note – and regular guests at the Kaaitheater – have been making duets that have acquired a legendary status. In their playful but rigidly composed miniatures, they combine dance, music, comedy and performance art.
Always the two of them… but not this time! For Any Table Any Room, they invite four local artists to join them onstage in each new location. For the showings in Brussels, they invited Mette Edvardsen, Dounia Mahammed, Lili Rampre and Andros Zins-Browne. They address the subject of ‘the possibility and impossibility of community’. How can we retain our autonomy and yet continue to be part of the group? Using 72 clay objects created by the performers, group singing and Indian drone sounds on smartphones, Any Table Any Room is a group journey that explores the pleasures and challenges of being and working together.
