'Deceptive Bodies' in Cc Strombeek 15 October 2015
'What seems to be an innocent game, soon becomes a manipulative and sensual power duel.' *** De Standaard
'Deceptive Bodies' is a collaboration between Charlotte Vanden Eynde and actress/visual artist Dolores Bouckaert made in 2014. Who missed this show or wishes to see it again, gets the chance the 15th of October at 20:30 in Cc Strombeek (BE).
Starting from a shared fascination with the body, Vanden Eynde and Bouckaert put on view the ambigeous play of representation and perception of the theatrical body. Therefor they explored the phenomenon hysteria. They closely observed and manipulated their own and each other's body, setting out in search of a common physical language related to both dance and the visual arts. By exposing themselves in an accumulation of physical transformations, a highly personal iconography is being (dis)played.
