Improvised dances in vivid costumes,
a breath-taking patchwork clashing between myth and reality
The improvised dance performance Post Animale
is a one-of-a-kind universe with costumes whose dimensions are gleefully at odds with the shapes of the wearers’ bodies. As part of Women & Children First, the second edition of the much acclaimed festival by Vooruit, the artists showcase their bizarre moves and dresswear for two consecutive days.
With Post Animale the exceptional Walloon artists will build on the foundations of performer Barbara Massart’s artistic universe. Using her textile creations – made of dyed wool, synthetic fur and other unconventional materials – an abrupt clash between myth and reality is orchestrated.
A colourful patchwork that makes the invisible visible.
La S Grand Atelier is an artistic lab for autodidactic artists with developmental disorders and other disabilities. The great power of the atelier lies in the perpetual exchange that goes on between contemporary artists and people with mental disabilities. The atelier holds workshops, supports artistic projects and organises public presentations. The latter take the form of concerts, films, exhibitions, magazines and performances.
Post Animale is a production by La S Grand Atelier, Vooruit, Casino Luxembourg and yours truly, Gouvernement.
