Alexander Vantournhout & Bauke Lievens


Du 1er au 3 avril 2016



Despite an extremely long neck and never-ending arms, his body is perfect.

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. Is he normal? Abnormal? A real phenomenon! Alexander Vantournhout is a young artist and winner of the CircusNext competition, an acrobat as well as a dancer who experiments with his body – an odd body with limbs that seem out of proportion. The previews of his show at Les Subsistances in June 2015 were quite an event!
