Two alternate worlds on the boundary between dream and reality

On the first day of EASTERN DAZE we’ll be heading over to our good friends at KASK Cinema, where we’re screening the utterly unique animation film ‘Chronopolis’ with a soundtrack by the legendary Luc Ferrari. Followed by Maika Garnica and her musical companion and explorer Aika Devriendt, a duo fond of dreamlike performances with abstract shapes and flowing sonic forms. Two alternate worlds for the price of one.

Screening ‘Chronopolis’

Chronopolis is a gargantuan city somewhere in the vastness of space. The immortal inhabitants of the city, bored by their endless existence, one day decide to manipulate time itself. They do so by manipulating atomic particles and electricity and constructing bizarre objects in step with a repetitive rhythm. Ultimately they hope to come in contact with a human being.

This utterly unique animation film from 1982 is an original meditation on the notion of time. Director Piotr Kamler worked his claymation figures for no less than five years to create this film, and the result still stands up today, almost forty years later. ‘Chronopolis’ is a futuristic sci-fi fable that remains breathtakingly poetic in 2019.

The soundtrack for ‘Chronopolis’ is by none other than one of the godfathers of electro-acoustic music and musique concrète, Luc Ferrari. Ferrari, who would have turned 90 this year, was a legendary composer, who set a musical milestone in 1970 with his ‘Presque rien No. 1 - Le Lever du jour au bord de la mer’.


Maika Garnica & Aiko Devriendt

As an artist, Maika Garnica is most at home at the intersection of environment, viewer and artist. She attempts to understand the complex relationship between form and substance through the use of sculptural prototypes, with the body as the driving force behind social connections. At EASTERN DAZE, Garnica will be accompanied by musical explorer Aika Devriendt. Devriendt has followed courses in music therapy and composition and is active as a multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer for theatre, dance, film and installations. The duo will investigate the sonic spectrum of ceramic objects. They will follow their feelings and intuitions in translating this into atmospheric, almost dreamlike performances with abstract shapes and flowing sonic forms.

Online presale ends at 17h! There will be tickets available at the doors (€5).
