GEOFFREY BURTON & SARAH YU ZEEBROEK
Guitar player Geoffrey Burton and artist Sarah Yu Zeebroek are life partners, and have now decided to make their first performance together. They investigate how Burton's wayward guitar music can blend with the surrealistic visual language of Zeebroek. The musical compositions come from Burton's debut album Me Te Podia, released in 2020. Zeebroek starts from several drawings and shapes that she manipulates with overhead projectors.
BENJAMIN ABEL & THE UNREQUIRED LOVE - SPECTACLES
Countertenor, performer and opera director Benjamin Abel Meirhaeghe and producer Laurens Mariën are joining forces again for a performance-concert that balances between a spectacle and a love ritual. Bipolar genres and atmospheres, operatic dada blues punk-pop, a high-pitched voice, dark beats and theatricality characterize this grand intimate spectacle. Together with dancer Hanako Hayakawa and writer Louise van den Eede they cherish the hope for a different society, in which people find each other again around poppy fires, where spectacles have a liberating power, where all possible forms of love constantly change costumes.
