ASSEMBLY (excerpts)
by Gabel Eiben & Tale Dolven
(20min)
tg
Assembly is a performance that uses the assembly line as a choreographic focus. But instead of producing goods for sale, the dancers are put on the line. Here they are displayed, examined, deconstructed and reassembled, piece-by-piece, as they present movements, text and their selves. What do you look at when you look at a person? Can we separate the details from the whole? Which are the details, specificities, individual qualities that make a person?
As the world becomes more connected, we are constantly confronted with our own identity: in private, public, online and so on. Are we more perfect as individuals or as participants in a group? The dancers in Assembly each have their own specialties and inclinations, but all have equal access to resources, to the material that makes up the performance. Thus their different individualities, strengths and weaknesses become all the more clear to the audience.
Assembly (excerpts) will focus on movement, text and performance, all related to the thematic focal point on identity.
This presentation is supported by the Flemish Ministry of Culture.

Grand Opening is an expansion of the work in progress formerly titled Rare Pattern – a solo study that examines the pursuit of virtuosity in a dreamscape of conflicting aesthetic desires.

OneTwoThreeOneTwo

from Albert Quesada & Zoltán Vakulya
by Albert Quesada & Katie Vickers
(45min)

In OneTwoThreeOneTwo, a pair of dancers use their bodies and their voices to ask, what is flamenco?How does this unwritten language – at once a music and a dance – create such intense, immediate communication?

Flamenco is an ancient, but a living form. From the deepest roots of gypsy music to the grand stage productions of today, its power springs from the same fundamental rhythmical sequences: 123 123 12 12 12. The intimacy and audience interaction of the flamenco tablao generates a complex web of meaning, expression and storytelling – a  unique set of rituals and techniques that continue to grow and evolve.

OneTwoThreeOneTwo breaks flamenco apart, examining each aspect of its singular magic.
