residency Lisa Vereertbrugghen at STUK
In the frame of the Creative Crossroad activity, Lisa Vereertbrugghen was selected by STUK to receive a 2 years structural support by the LLB network to work on her latest production "Disquiet":
"DISQUIET is a continuation of my research on hardcoretechno bodypolitics. By looking closely at and experiencing hardcore techno dances, I investigate what it means to be hardcore and what its political potential is. Politics refers to bodypolitics: how an embodied experience is marked by power relations. After gabber in the pieces Softcore and Camouflaging Kelly, my vocabulary is extended with jungle, drum-'n'-bass and other techno variants that call themselves hardcore. One of the elements shared by all these subgenres (apart from their speed) is the rupture of flow, the disturbance of regularity with breakbeats, pauses and complex rhythms. I see it as an opportunity to embrace my own incoherence. With the months of isolation in my body, I want to focus more on the interaction between all those actors: sound, my body, bodies of fellow players (aka the audience) and the space in between."
