Interdisciplinary installation-performance through which dance, song and territory meet, triggering the public’s mobility in a spirit of proximity and intimacy. Dancers and musicians are inside transparent inflatables bubbles.
Urban Distortions takes an interest in the clash of territories, speeds and movements of different scales through the exploration and the decoding of three cities: Hong Kong, Mtwapa (Kenya) and Brussels.
t.r.a.n.s.i.t.s.c.a.p.e is a Brussels-based dance company which confronts and cross dance with architecture and cinema. t.r.a.n.s.i.t.s.c.a.p.e are trying out a deciphering of the city, a system of urban reading and writing, with humour and certain strangeness brought about as a result of decontextualisation. The singer/musician Matthieu Ha develops a language without words which he ends up with his Haute Contre voice in a musical style close to minimal and baroque music.
Between performance and installation, the two sides of this dance project, with their diverging issues, meet at the perceptive distortions level.
The Kuala Lumpur Performing Arts Centre (klpac) in collaboration with T.R.A.N.S.I.T.S.C.A.P.E
