Night Shift: from dusk till dawn, 14.09.2019 at Vooruit

Ever wondered what search results you’d have if you ever looked for fitting synonyms for Ruben Mardulier and Michiel Deprez? We’re just giving away a few hints: anecdotic circus, performative experiments and post-internet remnants. That aside, they eagerly and publicly flirt with quirky combinations of various artistic media and disciplines. Without the extra bling or rehearsals, these two always serve you a mixed platter of a first draft, idea or study. On the bright side: you’ll always witness a premier. Oord #spelen does exactly that: a public trial run by Mardulier en Deprez, now accompanied by Femke Arnouts; a series of short, individual and confronting plays substantially shaped by the spectator. With after talk and feedback!


Night Shift: from dusk till dawn, 04.05.2019 at De Studio

With their joint alias, Ruben Mardulier and Michiel Deprez mix together anecdotic circus, performative experiments and post-internet remnants. Guided by the surroundings, their interests and imagination, they instigate a dialogue corresponding to those inspirations and the spark between themselves. It’s an artistic process providing tumultuous approaches which they can incorporate in exhibitions, performances, prose… or in short: inventive crossovers. Prior to their act for Night Shift, they move their atelier to the unique De Studio-building for one week to open up for all kinds of inspirations. We don’t know what direction their residency will take, but one thing’s certain: we’re already very excited.
