In Nebula, Vania Vaneau approaches the relationship between human bodies and nature as a meeting of force fields in a post-apocalyptic context. Nebula is a crossing into the unknown and a moment of eclipse that offers a glimpse at other possible worlds.
Eight dancers and a series of lines on the ground seem to trace the trajectories of a moving constellation we are about to observe. They move in a wonderful balance between extreme freedom and the idea of group unity, like leaves in the wind.
In Grinding the wind, Dina Mimi tries to fill in the missing parts in the story of her Palestinian great-grandfather who underwent medical tests and heart surgery. Fascinated by the performative nature of the operation, Mimi sets off on a journey through archives, oral histories, dreams and books.
It is 2070, 100 years after the first government reform. Belgium no longer exists and Flanders has become independent after four years of war. In the midst of all this, the last butcher in town and his disabled son try to survive.
IT'S EXTRA invites you to stay a little longer in the universe of the performance. After Grinding The Wind Dina Mimi invites you to an informal after-talk in a cosy setting.
