Thérians - Louise Vanneste/Rising horses


Brussels-based choreographer Louise Vanneste loves to produce a combination of grace and instinctive casualness in her works. Proof of this can be found again in Thérians, a word that comes from therianthropy that, for the uninitiated, is the mythological ability of human beings to metamorphose into animals. From the parading and marriage rituals of birds, she retains the body’s ability to metamorphose, to adopt a different sex, acknowledged by Virginia Woolf as providing inspiration for her Orlando. Keen on the dark black of photography, with her usual associates and the young Youness Khoukhou she intends to reinvent an awakening of a mysterious nature for the stage.

After Louise Vanneste's performance "Thérians" at The Brigittines, it's possible to see in the same venue and at 8.30 pm the musical and choreographic performance "Breathisdancing" by Alban Richard with the bagpipes musician Erwan Keravec and the american experimental singer Audrey Chen.

""Breathisdancing" is a possible answer to question : "What would an enhanced recital be ?"
The project focuses on breath as the spark for movement, sound, feeling, and emotion.
Three bodies-blowers-instrumentalists come together, working from Alban Richard's charts that define temporal and physical constraints, designed with the sole objective of ceaselessly generating sound and movement. Generating means producing something, having it for inevitable result, causing it, being its source.
The performers first present themselves one by one to the audience. The recital retains a classical form. And then the concept of "enhanced" takes shape. Together their output accumulates, forming spectral music all in mass, a landscape of body and sound.
This magma, in incessant transformation, compels the audience to find its way through an uncommon cartography of sound."
