Reactions from the audience

" From the first movement on, I couldn't restrain my tears. I understood every move, every symbolic reference, every expression. As I am a partner from an ex breast cancer patient this perfomance touched me very deeply. I can still not talk about it without getting emotional."

 

" True, emphatic, daring, subtle and unbelievably courageous"

 

" very touching performane, dance and music lift each other up"

Gratis Walhalla


Niet Helemaal - A performance by Gratis Walhalla

 

Created and performed by Arnoud Rigter en Hanne Schillemans

 

 

 

 

This is a dutch spoken performance with dance and poetry. No english translation available

 

Deze korte voorstelling gaat over kunst: “een artificieel trauma dat niet zeer doet, maar wel je ogen kleurt”. Of is het iets anders? Hoe dicht kunnen twee paar armen en benen komen in hun omschrijving, middels dans en poëzie? Liefst concreet als het realiteitsbesef van een driedimensionale cavia. Een kunstenaar proeft nog oerboem in zijn tandplak of is geen kunstenaar.

 

Arnoud Rigter deed als dichter zo’n vijfhonderd optredens. Hij publiceerde een aantal multidisciplinaire bundels (met titels als Het duimzuigend fossiel en Zoek de zeesnuiver). Daarnaast stond zijn werk in tientallen literaire bladen en bloemlezingen (zoals De Gids, Het Liegend Konijn, DW B, nY, DBNL en 25 Jaar Nederlandstalige Poëzie 1980 – 2005).

Madammen


Madames, you know them all.

Well-mannered, settled and distinguished

Aiming to fall into society’s grace

Though they never escaped their own dreams

Hiding behind decency and everyday things

Are the sneaky desires to the sins they’ve never committed

Performers: Sabine De Lange, Ann Wydooghe, Martine Colman, Florette Van Hecke, Simone Schillemans, Karien De Zutter, Caroline Van Haute
