INVITED

World premiere February 23th 2018 . KVS . Brussels

INVITED draws material from intensive research into (stage) space and co-authorship in contemporary dance. In his new production, Seppe Baeyens formulates his artistic response to the question of how the audience can help write the choreography of a performance. Taking dance as a common language, in the space of one hour he wants to look for an alternative way of living together and thereby establish a community embracing the cast and the audience.

INVITED consists of a varied intergenerational group of performers who reflect society. The audience plays an important part. The stage design is an essential part of INVITED. It reduces the distance between the performers and the audience by making them jointly a part of a single clear (democratic) form.
