Alexander Vantournhout & Bauke Lievens
22 - 24 Jan 2016
A tragic autobiography of the body.
ANECKXANDER unfolds in a minimal setting with one acrobatic body, a few carefully selected objects, and music by Arvo Pärt.
Balancing on the fine line between tragedy and comedy, Alexander Vantournhout rewrites the autobiography of his own body: from subject to object to matter. It all started when someone told him that his neck was rather long, the result is a raw self-portrait in which the body both exposes itself to and tries to escape from the prying eyes of those looking at it.
There will be a post-show discussion following the Sat 23 performance.
ANECKXANDER contains nudity throughout.
ANECKXANDER is part of the London International Mime Festival 2016.
"Extremely powerful performance that deals with the complex relationship of the body, the artist and performance." The Telegram
