Can we find consolation in the horrific fact that we are food and that we belong to an ecological cycle of life and death? Be prepared to delve into a landscape in which humans do not play the main role.

In 2015, an X-ray scan revealed that beneath the layers of paint on Kasimir Malevich's famous Black Square hid a racist inscription. Even the supreme abstraction does not appear to be free of politics. Within the lines of a highlighted square, three black performers now turn this tension on its head, seeking an incantatory counterbalance to sharp binary oppositions such as light and dark, reason and feeling, certainty and uncertainty.

Le Théâtre Royal des Galeries
Thu 01.06 - Sat 03.06.23

EXÓTICA is an exuberant ritual conceived as a séance through which dancers re-appear as ancestors, as queer and femmes of colour from the past and the present, and come into conversation with the gaze of the audience. Their performative presence opens a space for reenactments; initiating invocations, exorcisms, and a celebration.

With this new creation, Anne Teresa De Keersmaekers shifts her exploration of the relationship between music and dance back to pop music. Creation 2023 not only encourages dance, but also emphasises the need for stories and music that we can relate to and recognise.
