VIOLIN FASE

Eric Pauwels - Eric Pauwels - Eric Pauwels
A solo in two movements; dance and camera. Eric Pauwels twirls the camera around the body of Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker. What we see is not the geometrical and minimalist choreographic structure, but a possessed woman, bathing in sweat, exploring the boundaries of physical exhaustion. A solo in two movements: the dance and the camera. Four uninterrupted takes...

YODEL PORTRAIT PHIL MINTON

Myriam Van Imschoot
This portrait pays tribute to the British music legend Phil Minton and the many voices that live within his wide vocal range. Originally a trumpet player, Phil Minton developed a unique approach to his voice that sings back to the hum and din of the world. Sound is paint. The moving camera — as well as the light — encircle the singer as if meditating a riddle...

PERSONA NON GRATA

Fabio Wuytack
In the 1960s, the artist’s father Frans Wuytack worked in the barrios of Caracas, in Venezuela, as a priest and social activist. His actions led to him being imprisoned and deported on multiple occasions. In 2006, he returned to Caracas with an exhibition of paintings, sculpture and other art inspired by the struggle for justice of the barrios’s inhabitants...

FACE À FACE

Eric Pauwels
‘Face à face’ is considered by many to be nothing more than a “simple recording” of a performance by Michèle Anne De Mey. The spirit of the performance is certainly sublimely reproduced, but there is more. ‘Face à face’ is to some extent the synthesis of Pauwels’s earlier experiments...

In the heart of winter, a filmmaker is at work. Her work encompasses her life, the place of her body in within the season, her past, cinema, her friends and colleagues from Brussels (Alexandra Dementieva, Boris Lehman...). These observations by André are visualised in a minimalist way, but also with intimacy and richness in emotions and detail...
