The Island by Franck Vigroux & Kurt d’Haeseleer
Franck Vigroux is back in our region with a follow-up to his 2020 tour! This August and September, he shall present THE ISLAND, his latest cooperation with Kurt d’Haeseleer in Croatia and Romania, while Festival Bitef shall host his show FLESH.
About the performance: This audiovisual concert is the most recent collaboration between composer Franck Vigroux and video artist Kurt d’Haeseleer. A prolix duo who endeavor to find common modes of artistic language and try to invent synesthetic experiences with an identity of their own. ’The Island’ is a sensorial, associative and electrifying experience, inspired by a number of stories of islands and valleys destined to be submerged by the construction of a hydroelectric dam, causing deep human and geographic upheaval… ’The Island’ questions the replacement of one world by another and our blind belief in progress.
This tour is supported through Teatroskop Touring & Capacity Building Grants 2021.
