3 OCTOBER 2021

Diorama / Hanafubuki
Alles begint op een vreemde ochtend, waar er plots geen ronde maar vierkante zon opkomt. De dieren beslissen of ze voor of tegen die “nieuwe zon” zijn. In een houten mini-theater worden voorwerpen zodanig opgesteld dat er een nieuwe werkelijkheid ontstaat. Je doorloopt als toeschouwer een fantasierijke, poëtische, visuele reis. De koffer die als toneelzaal fungeert zit vol met abstracte vormen, decors en personages. Als toeschouwer maak je een reis doorheen deze uitklapbare kijkkast waarin verschillende werelden ontstaan.

Creatie: Hanne Holvoet, Sari Veroustraete, Samuel Baidoo
Spel: Sari Veroustraete / Lies Vandeburie,  Samuel Baidoo / Mathias Skole
Tekst: Tiemen Heemstra

Diorama / Hanafubuki
It all begins on a weird morning, where the sun rises not as a round but as a square. The animals decide whether they are for or against that “new sun”.
A wooden suitcase that functions as a theater is filled with abstract shapes, sets and characters. As a spectator you make an imaginative, poetic and visual journey through this fold-out viewing cabinet. Where the objects make arise different worlds and create new realities.

Sunday 03/10/2021 – For everyone aged 4 years and older
In Dutch at 10 am and at 2 pm, in French at 12 am and 4 pm

Sacrée Pagaille / Clair de Lune Théâtre
Claire de Lune Théâtre specializes in shadow theater in which music and images tell the story. Their latest performance is about the divine work of art, “La Pomme”, which in free fall causes a lot of trouble between heaven and earth!
Sacré Pagaille is shown in La Valise à Séraphin, a self-designed suitcase-theatre. The title is a tribute to Dominique Séraphin, grand master of shadow theater in France at the end of the XVIII.

Sunday 03/10/2021 – For everyone aged 8 years and older

The interaction between music and image is one of the most fascinating relationships in the arts. Numerous experiments and installations by avant-garde and contemporary artists show interdisciplinary approaches to music and sound with color, light, film, acoustics and digital technology.

In this studio you will be able to listen to paintings by Kandinsky, Klee, Mondrian or Rothko or enjoy musical Kamishibai stories such as The Town Musicians of Bremen or Mozart’s The Magic Flute. Composing, improvising or making your own songs is central, but the connections with drama, dance, design, architecture and sciences are also on the agenda. These may include drawing or painting music, designing record covers or graphic scores, creating sound figures or inventing sound poems yourself.

In our workshops you can build music machines or instruments, record the sounds for movie scenes or go on a listening walk in the garden to discover the sounds of nature.
An extensive collection of reference materials, books, web links, experimental films and video clips underscore the experience.
But the most important thing remains the pleasure of making music yourself and the wonder of looking with your ears and listening with your eyes.

Every first day of the month ABC sends a mail: “Posta silenziosa.” A powerful image, a provocative quote, a poetic thought, etc, coming from the ABC collection or the web, and sometimes linked to one of our current projects, but mainly just because we like to surprise you. An eye- or heartcatcher, or call it ‘a healthy form of emotional irritation.’

What can education learn from the arts about the practice of education? Elliot W. Eisner argues that the distinctive forms of thinking needed to create artistically crafted work are relevant not only to what students do, they are relevant to virtually all aspects of what we do, from the design of curricula, to the practice of teaching, to the features of the environment in which students and teachers live. Originally given as the John Dewey Lecture for 2002, Stanford University. Read more … WikiPedia …

Wat kan het onderwijs van de kunsten leren ? Elliot W. Eisner stelt dat de specifieke denkvormen die vereist zijn voor het creëren van kunstwerken niet alleen van belang zijn voor wat leerlingen doen, maar voor nagenoeg alles wat we doen, van het vormgeven van curricula, het onderwijzen zelf, tot het ontwerpen van de omgevingen waarin leerlingen en leraars leven. Origineel uitgesproken in 2002 als John Dewey Lecture aan de universiteit van Stanford. Lees meer … WikiPedia …
