insomnia : dreams for the end of the world – Frieda Gerson

insomnia is a trans-disciplinary project that explores metamorphosis and identity as seen through the prism of ever-changing bodies in a changing world, to share stories of transformation, aging and becoming. insomnia is about the dreams that keep us awake and those that help us get through the night. At the intersection between the stories we inherit and those we invent exists a liminal space between what is no longer and what is not yet. So insomnia stands at the frontier, a deconstruction of imagined binarities between utopia and dystopia, between euphoria and dysphoria.

‘work it’ – poetics bodies at work – Clio Van Aerde

The performancework it’ – poetics of bodies at work is a choreographic exploration of manual labor, centered around the broom as both tool and symbol of invisibilized labor. By focusing on the broom, this work challenges conventional notions of “skilled” labor by examining how humans, objects and their environment influence and shape each other.work it’ – poetics of bodies at work subverts systemic power structures and everyday performativity with a broom, promoting an idea of care and attention through absurdity and abstraction.

Lockdown Goddesses – Odile Gheysens

Lockdown Goddesses is a video-dance created during the March/April 2020 confinement.

A tribute to our inner goddesses, inspired by the book “Femmes et déesses tout simplement” by Christine Champougny-Odoux.

Odile Gheysens asked the dancers which of the 7 goddesses proposed in the book inspired them. Athena, Artemis, Hestia, Aphrodite, Demeter, Hera, Persephone.

The filming conditions at home were: white, a plant, lipstick. These videos were then edited, like bursts of spring in this confinement.
