hetpaleis/ Karolien Verlinden
Welcome to the FRAMED travel page. We are delighted that this show will feature on your stage. The following page contains everything you need to make the show an outstanding one, in terms of both technical requirements and communications.
To look away.
To look again.
To look more closely, longer, deeply.
Until that point where looking becomes seeing.
Or maybe listening with your eyes.
FRAMED is a passionate plea for people to look with empathy. Choreographer Karolien Verlinden introduces a unique cast of actors, dancers and musicians – eight performers, eight bodies, all examining each other and subjecting themselves to examination. Using their own lives as starting points, they show how one body can
bear an unexpected and expectant narrative, while another body simply is what it is. They explore the relationship between body and identity and use the rhythm of crescendoing beats and a trombone to reveal the question – what does the outward appearance of your body say about who you are, and what does it not say?
FRAMED creates a universe where stereotypes become fluid, where doubts are
embraced, where unity is born out of confusion. It might be an abrasive world, but it
is also a silver-lined one.
A background package is created for every hetpaleis production, an online platform packed with bonus features: interviews with the creators, drama and image-related exercises, music, videos and much, much more – all available to schoolkids and anybody else.
