Intense encounter between two women of completely different perspectives

‘Sculpture’ arose from the artistic research of Quan Bui Ngoc (Les ballets C de la B) and Veronique Mees (Platform-K) into the authenticity of the human body. In their preliminary research the focus was on the body in relation to expectations, reality, the norm. What is the identity of the body? What influence does it have on our lives?

More than a ‘twisted’ body, performer Veronique Mees is another person. Her view of the world is determined in part by the dominant role her body plays in her in life. Beauty is found in the wonderment at how being different is perhaps not so different after all.

‘Sculpture’ is an encounter between two women of completely different perspectives. Veronique’s life is dominated by an extremely intense concentration on her own physical functioning; she fights a personal battle each day, fuelled by an extraordinary will and desire. She enters into dialogue with her body and with drummer and percussionist Karen Willems. Willems in turn becomes part of the dynamic, driven by her constant search for new experiences in confrontation with other disciplines and performers.
