Netherlands - Amsterdam - De Brakke Grond at the Art Pie10/05/2010
May 15- 23, 2010
Opening Saturday, 15th May, 16h00
De Brakke Grond will be taking centre stage at the eighth Kunstvlaai ('Art Pie') using performances and installations in the Machinegebouw building that break down the barriers between visual and performing arts. As theatre borrows more and more from the performance and visual arts, De Brakke Grond believes it's time for some reciprocation the other way around: after all, theatre-makers really know how to involve audiences in their work. De Brakke Grond aims to stimulate such crossovers.
During Art Pie, De Brakke Grond will be presenting performers and installation-makers who invite visitors to actively get involved. There will be installations & video by Dolores Bouckaert (co-curator) & Benny Vandendriessche, Geoffrey de Beer, Stief Desmet and Sarah & Charles, and during the two weekends there will be performances by the likes of Stephanie Claes, Bernard Van Eeghem, Hans Bryssinck & Christoph Hefti , Dolores Bouckaert & Griet Dobbels and Ief Spincemaille. The intervening weekdays will be given over to work by artists selected following an open call process.
