Spin, Spin, Scheherazade is a humorous and passionate monologue rooted in a form of artistic barefoot anthropology. Orla Barry directs Einat Tuchman, who explores the boundaries of art, gender, and the rural everyday. Coincidence, humour and a subtle language game are the ingredients of a performance that blends oral historiography with personal memories.

Anyuta Wiazemsky Snauwaert and Kim Snauwaert sketch an ambiguous image of their position as female artists in a contemporary feminist context. The performer adopts the weak position of an objectified female, and simultaneously transcends that fragility through its cynical staging. Snauwaert made this performative installation as a graduation project at KASK.

Einat Tuchman has worked in Molenbeek for the past several years. After long insistence, she was eventually given permission to use a cellar space in a community centre: she named it ‘Espacetous’. Everyone is welcome to talk, to work or just to be. Doha, a local girl, is a regular guest. Together, they made Other Enter, which talks about the difficulties that you encounter when launching neighbourhood projects and how they nevertheless manage to create a place for ordinary people where everyone can be themselves.

Does gender have a voice, does skin have a race? Using drag, vogueing, striptease, YouTube tutorials as well as the triadic ballet by Oskar Schlemmer, seven bodies and many more objects try out new constellations, like surrealist ready-mades. With a great sense of irony, Escape Act presents hyper-stereotyped gender identities, only to deconstruct them completely.

How can we create stories, aesthetics, and spaces of experience to deal with this situation reflexively and critically? What role can the performing arts play in the climate crisis debate? This is the fourth in a series of performative conferences curated by David Weber-Krebs and Jeroen Peeters.

In this performance about information fast food, vanity, fiction and the urge for affirmation, the artistic duo Sarah & Charles goes in search of the ultimate form of submission. In an age in which social media and the internet are expanding our view of the world, our minds appear to be narrowing emotionally. The performers invite you to a creative wellness centre where you can put your decision-making on hold.
