Allow us to introduce VACUUM - a sound choreography combining dance, video & quadraphonic sound with music by award winning composers David Poltrock (De Mens, Poltrock, winner of a Belgian Music Industry Award) and Adriaan de Roover (fka Oaktree, winner of a Red Bull Elektropedia Award).
"Nature abhors a vacuum: it is the stage for primal forces continuously striving to fill in the void. But how does one resonate in this world of chaos?"
It is the background for a new immersive performance conceived and directed by Aïda Gabriëls and her collective OESTER. Dates for VACUUM have been confirmed for Ancienne Belgique (Brussels where the artists were offered a residency during the pandemic), STUK (Leuven) and CCHA (Hasselt) in September and October.
About the music by Poltrock & de Roover:“Sultry and intriguing ambient soundscapes where all sense of space and focus is lost. From intimate and claustrophobic textures to monumental, crushing walls of noise.
About the performance: “A unique sound choreography leaving spectators to wander in a field of constantly shifting tension. In this audiovisual landscape the dancer performs a physical battle that brings to stage both brutal forces, primeval instincts and human fragility.
