Femke & Lander Gyselinck [BE]
29.11 – 30.11.2018
In addition to their genes, Lander and Femke – a brother and sister – share a great fascination and passion for one another’s profession. He is a drummer, she is a dancer. For their first joint creation, they decided to swap roles. Lander dances (musically), Femke plays music (dansant), until both become blurred and blend together. The show is based on a song by Jennifer Lopez – another shared fascination – from which they each distil a dance phrase, which the other resamples. The music likewise passes through both their hands. The goal is not to outclass one another, but to find virtuosity in each other’s imperfections. Their older brother Wannes, a dramaturg, keeps an eye on the whole work. It’s a family affair...
• Lander Gyselinck is a drummer who plays in STUFF. and other bands. Femke Gyselinck (ex-PARTS) is a dancer and the artistic assistant of Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker.
