Douleur et Rébellion (working title)
Residence: 3 – 16 februari & 3 – 16 APRIL)
Open Club: 14 april

During her residency at DansBrabant, choreographer / dancer Elisabeth Borgermans (BE) investigates the relevance of political cinema for the development of her choreographic and scenic work. She wants to expose the interaction/exchange between spectator and political reality and depict it scenically-choreographically. She chose 3 filmmakers – Fassbinder, Pasolini and Schroeter – to investigate which models and strategies they offer for making a political dance. She thus balances on the intersection of politics, film theory and choreography, hoping to find a dance with a direct, real impact.

Open Club – Elisabeth Borgermans

How can choreography generate political awareness and impact? How do you make political dance or do you make dance political? Can you see the aforementioned filmmakers in a tradition of queerness? And: how does all this relate to making aesthetic, scenic choices.

During the Open Studio on April 14 at DansBrabant, these questions will be discussed in a talk, after which we will watch the film Die Ehe der Maria Braun (1979). We happily invite you to attend.
