Chapel, 70’

Meet the artists after the show on 13.06

The title of the piece is a reference to Bach’s masterpiece and recalls Steve Paxton’s iconic 1980s solo in contemporary dance history. This emblematic source allows Michiel Vandevelde, accompanied by Audrey Merilus and Oskar Stalpaert – a dancer with Platform-K, a Ghent-based company of dancers with and without disabilities – to immerse us into forty years of the history of dance. This journey questions the evolution of this art form and its various forms of physicality.

A surprising musical transposition for accordion played by Philippe Thuriot joins the polyphony of bodies and its multiple variations.

As the result of this fascinating cross-pollination, the performance is a testament to time and a receptacle for it.
