Programme Spring 2016: "You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet"

5.02 - 30.04.2016: on different ways of seeing

Performance - Theatre - Dance - Sceenings - Video art - Exhibition - Citygame

With work by e.g. Zachary Oberzan, Antonia Baehr & Valérie Castan, Nina de Vroome, Vincent Riebeek & Florentina Holzinger,  Rebecca Baron, Hans Demeulenaere & Emi Kodama, ... 


We are overrun with opinions. What is true and what is false, who is right and who is just babbling on? Even the traditional media are going under. The battleground has shifted from reality to perception. To be is to be perceived.

The artists in the focus-programme You Ain't Seen Nothin' Yet make us stop, look and question things. They make us aware of our viewing patterns. They dwell on the different ways of perceiving the world and things. What do you really see, what does a medium do with our perception, who or what colours that perception? 

Highlights ? Zachary Oberzan, the American wunderkind, is back - disguised as "the King" - with his new play The Great Pretender. In the exhibition You make a better door than you do a window, the Belgo-Canadian duo Hans Demeulenaere and Emi Kodama welcome the public  to their interpretation of ‘a home’, a place where memory and imagination are given ample time and space. Every Saturday between 15:00 en 19:00 the expo will be activited by different performers. You can also follow a guided tour throught the buidling of Beursschouwburg by Emi Kodama on separate occasions. 

EXTRA: See You! A gigantic city game, inspired by Gotcha!, that will run during the course of three months. During See You!, participants must keep an eye on each other and demonstrate constant vigilance. During this game, the eye is the main weapon. More information on See You
