Theater of Artist Performance

From doubt to resolution: the audiovisual performance A Year in Dark Shades reflects the maelstrom of our inner thought.

Sound artist Vincent Caers has been a resident in BAC ART LAB for a few years and is finishing his PhD in the arts. For this performance he is joined by fellow resident and usual partner-in-crime Klaas Verpoest.

Sound and image intertwine order and disorder. Vincent and Klaas continuously attempt to balance both, only to fail graciously. In doing so, they create an overwhelming audiovisual experience.
