The extended human body
Dolores Bouckaert – Galop, biography of a body
On Tuesday 20th of March 2018 Redelijk Eigenzinnig / Reason and Engage (VUB) invites Robert Riener for his lecture <Human-centered technologies for movement assistance and rehabilitation>. After the lecture Redelijk Eigenzinnig / Reason and Engage (VUB) invites to you to Galop, a performance/theatre play by Dolores Bouckaert.
Galop tells the bizarre story of the life cycle of a body in ten tableaux. It is a chronically ill body that has reached a turning point after forty years, and often seems to have a life of its own. Its service fails and resistance loses.
Dolores Bouckaert researches the complex and ambiguous relationship between her body and spirit, in which an irrepressible desire to move often conflicts with reality. Alongside Dolores Bouckaert on stage are a bed, ten record players, and – via film and audio – a fast and powerful horse. The two are one another’s opposites until they become interchangeable, when the horse’ gallop coincides with the rhythm of her heartbeat.
Redelijk Eigenzinnig / Reason and Engage (VUB) has a limited number of tickets for this performance.
