A living mechanism that explores the essence of today’s society in real time, the performance approaches human dependency in such a way that he tests, punctuates and transforms the perception of basic human values. Bodies, states and emotions receive new meanings while the composition regenerates itself ad infinitum, deconstructing abstract ideas like teritory, rebellion, or justice.
Thomas Steyaert is a Belgian artist based in Brussels and Sarajevo. A former dancer with Wim Wandekeybus / Ultima Vez and founder of the young artist collective Ponyhill vzw, he explores various media such as dance/performance, painting/drawing, music, photography and video work — each from a different perspective.
