Dana Michel is inimitable. Unconventional and unique, she does things her own way, overwhelms us with her instinct and intuition. Where her artistic work is concerned, this Canadian choreographer attracts the most positive of adjectives. And we are bringing her to Belgium for the first time!

In the context of our biannual Working Title Festival, we organize a series of two-day artistic workshops during which some of the artists in workspacebrussels share their experiences with the Brussels artistic community. The artists will introduce you to their practice through a series of practical exercises. The results will be presented as short interventions during the Working Title Festival. The workshops are free and open to all artists and art students. Since the number of participants is limited, reservation is required.

A break. Falling with abandon into a cascade, bathing in basins, finding events, consent to paths, let oneself succumb to the waves. Finally, sinking into the knees in algae to feel their complete vitality.

Robbert&Frank Frank&Robbert GO AWAY SORROW OF THE WORLD (working title)
FR 28.10.2016 14:00 - 17:00
SA 29.10.2016 14:00 - 17:00
The Ghent-based artist duo Robbert&Frank Frank&Robbert (BE) are currently working on a project, in which they are producing small wooden suitcases. The suitcases – the same size as hand baggage in airplanes – contain fold-out works of art and performances. In the Beursschouwburg, they will during the day unpack and set up the content of the suitcase with the title GO AWAY, SORROW OF THE WORLD. In the run-up to their new performance, we invite you to come and have a look at this budding new universe. The message of the work may seem naive, but it refers to the simple – and age-old – belief that with this text, like a mantra, one can effectively improve the world. Everyone who reads, thinks and speaks this text is sending something good out into the world.
