a dance made for a friend, Niels Benoot.
his choice was to make a work on belgian identity and was looking for new symbols that could be more relevant then the old ones. he proposed me to do a dance inspired on a iconic belgian choreographer.
after Anne-Teresa Dekeersmaeker "achterland" and "rosas danst rosas" was plagiarised by Beyonce, my intention was to re-do the dance with a similar attitude but the movement not defined, there was no clear structure to rely on and an attempt of deformation. the film is shot with an i-phone,the room is an abandoned internat in the centrum of bruges,
the dance was done in silence. afterwards the music, from the books was added for personal purpose.
this is not a work of art.
this is a set of movements around 18h performed by jonas vanhullebusch on the music of "the books"
