Alexander Vantournhout & Bauke Lievens


Wednesday 17 and Saturday, June 20



Aneckxander is “a tragic autobiography of the body.” Alexander Vantournhout is a young winner of the CircusNext competition, an acrobat as much as a dancer. His field of experimentation is his body: an odd body with limbs that seem out of proportion. With his extremely long neck, never-ending arms, and incredibly flexible body, Alexander/Aneckxander twists and tests himself, violently pushing the limits while questioning ours with his sculptural, raw nudity. He’s like a Pierrot with gentle eyes who wants to break the silence, and we no longer know if the gestures he repeats are acrobatics or sacrifice. Watch out, he’s got a very strong personality!

This phase of the work in residence will precede a creation performed in April at Les Subsistances, during the creation Week_End.
