batard2017

From 31/10 to 4/11 Bâtard Festival pours the work of emerging artists through the fissures and ventricles of the Beursschouwburg. Five days long, artists from all over Europe create a frame of sensuous space and analytic time and invite you to move through the thick of their layered pieces. Pushing ideas and experiences out of their predictable bubbles and making them burst into pores in your brain. Reaching through you, letting them seep into your thoughts.



Ogutu Muraya —
Because I always feel like running
(*)
Through historical, documentary and personal narratives, Muraya investigates the runners body both as a political repository and a vulnerable, vital and resilient biological organism.


Wotjek Ziemilski/Nowy Teatre —
Jeden Gest

“The limits of my language mean the limits of my world” Wittgenstein once said. If language is the only reality we have access to, what can we learn about the world from the languages of the Deaf?


Micha Goldberg —
Micha´s Amateur Theater Group (for professionals)

Micha’s Amateur Theatre Group is a group of professionals from the Brussels arts field that have been meeting each other in the time concept of amateurs — 1,5 hours a week, for two months. At Bâtard Festival they show three creations.


Oneka Von Schrader —
SHE
(*)
SHE is a solo performance exploring multiple — female — manifestations of spirituality. We are SHE, and you are SHE, and SHE is inheriting the HE, and the phallus is female, a soft, soft snake.


Dounia Mahammed —
w a t e r w a s w a s s e r

What would happen if we were to look at every living being the way we look at an enigma, something that wants to be solved? How would we deal with reality?


Emilie Charriot —
King Kong Theory

In a simple but never simplistic way, Charriot uses the strength Virginie Despentes book King Kong Theory, its paradoxes and its complexity, to highlight its universality.


Wiebe Moerman & Max Pairon
Pairon and Moerman walk/look/talk/work since the summer of 2014 together. With Goudsoekers they move a sculpture from the stairs of Le Bourse to the seats of the golden space of the Beursschouwburg.


Caroline Creutzburg —
Nerve Collection

As a spy within her own nervous system, Caroline Creutzburg comes upon bizarre landscapes, the perpetual pumping of aggression-veins, outdated moral principles and sacred auto-bio-matter.


Anne Lise Le Gac & Élie Ortis —
Grand Mal

It started with a collection Glocal Danses: a collection of non-professional dance videos found on the internet. This collection has become an endless and joyful conversation: Grand Mal.


Ruben Desiere —
La fleurière

In the back room of a flower shop, Tomi, Rasto and Mižu are digging a tunnel in order to break into the safe of the National Bank. After heavy rainfall, they are forced to stop working.


Oliver Zahn —
Situation mit ausgestrecktem Arm

Situation mit Ausgestrecktem Arm deals with the (art-)history of a contaminated gesture: the saluto romano, the Olympic salute, the Bellamy-salute, the German salute, the Hitler salute.


Slow Reading Club
Slow Reading Club is a semi-fictional reading group initiated by Bryana Fritz and Henry Andersen, that will lead the public through a number of late night choreographic reading situations.


Linda Blomqvist —
The Sound
(*)
For her performance The Sound, the Swedish choreographer and dancer Linda Blomqvist has invited Sound to take her, Madeleine Lindh and Sandra Lolax on a trip. You are also welcome to take part in this experience.


Camille Picquot —
Hollow Hours

Two kids live as adults. Quite casually, they manage by themselves. In this big chaotic city, their independence could have something in common with freedom. But around them, nobody wonders about their precocity.


Augustas Serapinas —
Jõusaal

During his residency at the Estonian Academy of Arts in Tallinn, Serapinas came across a number of abandoned sculptures. Now, you’re welcome in his absurd gyms, for your daily work-out.


Don’t worry, this isn’t all: from 8/11 to 11/11, the week after Bâtard Festival at Beursschouwburg, we move to the Veem House for Performance in Amsterdam. Some artists will present the same work as they present in Brussels, some will present other work.
