Rataplan, Antwerpen (B)

On a beach near Calais a young refugee prepares himself to swim across the Channel, towards his new future. 
The new text by author Gaea Schoeters is mirrored by recently recovered Shakespeare-text. Composer Annelies Van Parys uses the Shakespeare-text as a libretto for a cycle of songs, which set the refugee theme in a historical perspective.

NUITNUMÉRIQUE #14 KINESTEZI

until 24 May 2017
Saint-Ex, Centre Culturel Numérique, Reims (F)

Compass 02005 is an orientation machine to wear around your waist. It directs you left and right while walking. It guides you through virtual corridors, rooms and doors programmed in the physical exhibition space, or any location. The apparatus imposes an attraction or repulsion on your waist, like you are in a magnetic field. You can explore this environment and discover a tactile architecture. The machine is programmed to make you follow an invisible map but you can choose between resisting to the machine or giving in and letting yourself be guided.

Norwegian premiere at Borealis Festival

Peer Gynt-salen, Grieghallen, Bergen (NO)

For her first opera, Private View, the composer Annelies Van Parys chose to take as her starting point Alfred Hitchcock’s thriller Rear Window, about a murder in a block of flats. 
Her collaboration with the librettist Jen Hadfield, scenarist Gaea Schoeters and director Tom Creed led to the creation of a pioneering opera that won several awards. Private View breaks with tradition, above all in the video installation by the Collective 33⅓.

Aernoudt Jacobs
The Art of Listening
WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO LISTEN? AND HOW EXACTLY DO WE LISTEN?
16 March 2017 - 12:30
Muntpunt, De Wolken +5, Brussels (B)

Aernoudt Jacobs is a sound artist and artistic director of Overtoon, a Brussels based sound art platform.

Aernoudt Jacobs' work is both phenomenological and empirical. It originates from acoustic and technological research and investigates how sounds still can yield sonic processes which will trigger the perceptive scope of the observer. Jacobs' installations focus on a central question: how can the complexity, richness and stratification of our direct, daily environment be translated into something that can really be experienced?
