Performances without a theater / in the open air
Listen Here: These Woods is a literal invitation to go into nature. Set to the soundtrack of the forest, of wind rustling through the leaves and birds zipping by in the branches, the forest is these five dancers’ home, as they draw you into feeling its dynamic aliveness. The performance becomes a beautiful exchange between forest, dance, and audience, as we all momentarily share space with other living creatures in nature. A show for anyone who wants to strengthen their connection with nature!
Ræv rehearsal* invites you to rehearse new forms of coming together. Glow shoes, flashing lights, portable audio sculptures, a mobile speaker system and of course: you. These are the ingredients for a new kind of manifestation, a rehearsal in which the participants jointly create a movable light show to a techno beat. How do you get movement patterns going in a crowd? What movements unleash energy and a sense of freedom?
What kind of life lurks behind the façades of the apartment buildings, under the bridges, in the canal or in the clouds above the towers? Panorama Ring Ring gives you a unique 360° panoramic view of special locations in and around the Northern Quarter, which is on the eve of radical changes. Look for one of the lookouts, get up there and call one of the operators.
How can you create a safe space in public space for the exchange of various forms of repressed or underexposed knowledge? This is the basic principle of bodies of knowledge (BOK), Sarah Vanhee's alternative school, that stays in the same spot in the city for a few weeks or months, and then moves again. From September 18, BOK will be installed in the centre of Brussels for three months. You can take part in a free programme every week, whether it be a walk, a workshop, a game or a read-aloud.
bodies of knowledge (BOK) considers the city as a rich source of valuable knowledge. Every passer- by could teach you something from their own background and life-experiences. BOK seeks to share this invisibilized or suppressed knowledge through oral transmission, that potentially could give rise to a socially more just society. The Big BOK Multiplication tells the story of one and a half year of BOK in Brussels. It's the gathering of a learning community, and an encounter with a living corpus of non-dominant knowledge. Feel welcome to join and learn along.
