ARE WE NOT DRAWN ONWARD TO NEW ERA
17/09/2014 — Alexander Devriendt, director of Ontroerend Goed is working on a new project with 6 actors and 6 musiciens (SPECTRA ensemble). The composer William Basinski is also collaborating on the project and also choreographer Jan Martens.
ARE WE NOT DRAWN ONWARD TO NEW ERA is a palindrome. Like the title, you can look at the performance forward and backward. In the middle, there’s a ‘point zero’ – the ‘O’ in the title. The first part is a physical movement piece, the second part a contemporary classical video performance. Both parts mirror each other.
The composition Disintegration Loops by William Basinski serves as a source of inspiration and a musical vehicle for the show.
