MELCHIOR

Billie & The Wheelgod

      30 Jun, 01 + 02 Jul 2017
20h30 @ Ultima Vez Studio, Zwarte Vijverstraat 97, 1080 Brussels

‘You are stupid!’, we told the watchman. We stole his key and locked him in eternal sleep. There he bathed and looked younger than we could ever be.

MELCHIOR is the imagined space in which new action is threaded by the facts of common history. The action itself is sharp and precise, a direct implication of the action that precedes. Words are spoken occasionally and reveal a poetry of place and moment, of brevity and gravitas, before they are let go of and disappear.
Billie & Wheelgod is a structure and catalyst for producing instant dances that fulfill poetic directives. It dedicates to destruction of image and in doing so it gives birth to organic and rich compositions. Billie Hanne direts the dancers with careful attention so the material can unfold into the piece.

How do you integrate music playing, your performing body and space?

Many musicians are interested in physical performance, and the combination of being a musician and a physical performer simultaneously.

This course helps to get closer to the goal – The level, where the integration of music instrument is in balance with the language of the body in space.

The course gives the opportunity for exploring this question from a theatrical view point in an abstract form, by introducing the ‘abc’, the tool box of stage performance.

The ‘abc’ is based on the mime principles, the process towards composition/ phrasing is based on improvisation (articulation of space, time, action / movement – with or without sound). It means we develop instant decision making based on the ability to trust our experience, skills, knowledge and intuition, our partners, teamwork.

It is called music-theatre, because we work on the theme: musicality in all aspects. It is based on the method MoM (Musicality of Movement).
The approach is physical.
