tele-present wind, 2018 consists of a series of 126 x/y tilting mechanical devices connected to thin dried plant stalks installed in a gallery and a dried plant stalk connected to an accelerometer installed outdoors. When the wind blows, it causes the stalk outside to sway. The accelerometer detects this movement transmitting the motion to the grouping of devices in the gallery. Therefore, the stalks in the gallery space move in real-time and in unison based on the movement of the wind outside.

Palais des Congrès - Auditoire Rops, Namur (B)

Using intersections between natural and mechanical systems, David Bowen produces unique relationships within his sculpture and installation. With robotics, custom software, sensors, tele-presence and data, he constructs devices and situations that are set in motion to interface with the physical and virtual world. The devices he constructs often play both the roles of observer and creator, providing limited and mechanical perspectives of dynamic situations and living systems. These devices and situations create a dissonance that leads to an incalculable changeable situation resulting in unpredictable outcomes. The phenomenological outputs are collaborations between the natural form or function, the mechanism and the artist.

Kris Verdonck
ICK Fest
2 November 2018
until 4 November 2018
Theater de Meervaart, Amsterdam (NL)

Kris Verdonck makes in ISOS reference to the world and characters depicted in the apocalyptic science-fiction novels by James Graham Ballard (GB, 1930-2009). Ballard portrays in his Magic Realistic stories and autobiographical works, intelligent and visionary descriptions of a future world which increasingly resembles our contemporary neoliberal society. ISOS consists of 3D videos shown in nine view-boxes where virtual sculptures perform in the strained socio-political situation that is called suburbia. The audio-visual installation acts as a short film edited in the viewer's imagination.

Liège - Brugge - Antwerpen - Brussels (B)

One hundred years on from the Great War, the Belgian National Orchestra will perform the world premiere of A War Requiem by the Flemish composer Annelies Van Parys. The war rhetoric of the aggressor resounds in the German libretto. Together with Collegium Vocale Gent the Belgian soprano Sophie Karthäuser and the German baritone Thomas Bauer will give the lost generation of 1914-1918 a voice. The concert takes places as part of the national commemorative ceremonies for World War I in Belgium.

Shell Shock - World premiere
10 November 2018 - 18:00

accentus returns to the great works of the a cappella repertory under the leadership of a recognised master of choral conducting: Marcus Creed. Figure humaine, written in 1943, was based on poems by Paul Éluard. A hymn to freedom, this cantata for mixed double choir is considered one of Poulenc’s masterpieces, and a milestone in the accentus story. Another major work in the choral repertory, Frank Martin’s Mass for Double Choir delivers a message of peace in which Gregorian inspiration and the influence of Bach combine in a dizzyingly rich language. This clarity is also a characteristic of the music of Annelies Van Parys who offers, here, her brand new work Shell Shock.

Chroniques 2018
Parvis de la Cité du livre, Aix-en-Provence (FR)

Shrink 01995 - Two large, transparent plastic sheets and a device that gradually sucks the air out from between them leave the body vacuum-packed and vertically suspended. The transparent tube inserted between the two surfaces allows the person inside the installation to regulate the flow of air. As a result of the increasing pressure between the plastic sheets, the surface of the packed body gradually freezes into multiple micro-folds. For the duration of the performance the person inside moves slowly and changes positions, which vary from an almost embryonic position to one resembling a crucified body.

At Chroniques 2018 there will be 3 Shrinks and the bodies of 3 performers.

Music Rooms 2018: Mobile-Stabile
BIG BANG Festival
1 November 2018
until 9 December 2018

The Music Rooms are an inescapable and legendary element of BIG BANG Festival. This musical voyage of discovery, which transports you into secret rooms and the forgotten nooks and crannies of the festival, is synonymous with exceptional surprises. Behind the doors of the Music Rooms, the broom cupboards, the lofts and the cellars, the classrooms or rehearsal rooms, there await three fantastic mini-concerts.

Mobile-Stabile - Tiptoe Company
Mobile-Stabile is a moving artwork, a dream machine. A musician arrives in a world where everything is loose and nothing is fixed. The sheep turn endlessly around, the guitarist sways on high with his lullaby and together we count down to a stable equilibrium. A show about that moment just before you fall asleep, that floating slumber between reality and dream.
