Geluid en beeld stromen samen. Studenten uit verschillende disciplines aan LUCA School of Arts treden buiten hun comfortzone. Het keuzevak Common Grounds nodigt hen uit om te experimenteren en de grenzen van hun medium te overstijgen. Het resultaat van dit interdisciplinaire project mag gezien worden en is een avondvullende performance. Muzikanten, beeldende kunstenaars en performers presenteren een nieuw en fascinerend kunstwerk.
Performance: It is essentially about trying to connect in times of disconnection, loneliness and alienation. The story is set at a place with six individuals trying to get to connect. As the night goes on the dynamic changes, the performers connect and disconnect.
Performance: I would brush my hair 100 times every night before going to sleep. My mother had told me this was the best way to keep it smooth, straight, good looking, … And the thing I wanted the most in the world was to be smooth, straight, good looking, … So I brushed and counted to 100, like a prayer.
Performative installation: Each person is going somewhere. Multiple bodies living the same experience, a feedback loop reflected back to us. What is the purpose of this moment of transition? Who are we when we are not at A or B, but somewhere in between? A moment of interference in our experience of the mundane. With Walk, we invite the audience to participate in a whimsical version of the everyday world.
This installation doubles as the performance space for the piece Clown by Elisabeth Willems and Mirjam Vesters.
Performance: Clown is a live performance of someone lost in his own world of thoughts. The character is confronted with himself in his or her thought world. In dreams you never see your own face. With this installation too, the face will never actually be seen, but you will see a reflection of how the character feels - a clown in this society.
Clown is presented within the context of the installation piece Walk by Lena Detremmerie, Max Ferguson and Warre Kempeneers.
Performative installation: A trace; a mark, object, or other indication of the existence or passing of life; a performance. But when all traces fade into blackness, only the trace of a performance remains recognizable. Traces questions our (disappearing) legacy on earth. How to leave a lasting mark?
Performative installation: Love all things weird and fun? What happens when you are faced with a rather unique game - one with no rules. Will you let the pressure of this nonsensical world get to you or fight until the last tick? In this bizarre, visually immersive experience, we take you on an individual journey accompanied by our own performers. Come, put your game face on and join us! We look forward to beating you.
Performative installation: Four colourless people aspire to bring colour into their life.
Installation: An audiovisual installation about the digital extension of a physical space.
Installation: A historical fiction about the door, about American Cold War Propaganda and a door in a post apocalyptic future repeating in a loop.
