Tactile Cycle 2012-2021

Normally we would have presented the Kaaitheater programme of the coming weeks. But then everything changed. So there is no programme this time. Instead, we are proud to present a collection of contributions by artists whose productions have been cancelled, as well as by two artists-in-residence. They each answered a simple question: ‘What would you like to say to the Kaaitheater audience now?

You probably already know that you will not see any more performances on our stages this season. Kaaitheater and the Kaaistudios will remain empty in May and June, and we have no programme to announce. And yet coordinators Agnes Quackels & Barbara Van Lindt decided to write you this letter.

Vera Tussing invites the string quartet Quatuor MP4 to join four dancers onstage for a playful encounter between movement and sound. At the point where the orbits of dance and music intersect, you are invited to enter the kaleidoscopic score. Lend a hand, or an arm!

Continuous interaction between the performers and audience is rooted in an implicit understanding. Along with your fellow audience members, you delineate the stage in an ellipsis: this is a dance of touch. Join the performers in this adventure to discover what it means to experience tactility!

Two female bodies entwine until they become only one. Or three? Or… none? Where does a body actually begin? A clear question resounds in this duet that both refers to the tropes of the genre but also transcends them. What does it mean nowadays to be two together?

How do we touch without touching one another? Four dancers explore the memory and the limits of the body and the mind’s connections. The spectator inhabits the same imaginative space as the performers and becomes part of an empathetic, imagined touch.

In a choreography that transmits itself only by means of Stine Sampers’ photos, Vera Tussing and Esse Vanderbruggen re-situate their work in the urban landscape of Brussels, and then upload it to Instagram. On Dance Day, they invite you to Kaaitheater for a discussion on the meeting of their practices, and a physical sharing of the digital material.
