lightdesign, technical coordination



In Portraits, Aline Breucker and Quintijn Ketels portray two very different circus artists: Camille Paycha and Sander De Cuyper. The underlying idea is quite simple. The audience enters a studio where people are busy working and philosophising. In the meantime, the performers try to structure their ideas and to find a place for things. Portraits questions the links between movement and traces, between work and life. Existential questions such as “When you look at me, who am I looking at?” and “Is this a portrait of a person, a process or a relationship between two people?” float to the surface. A surprising portrait of the situation is created with circus techniques, drawings and monotypes.
