BITBYBIT

MOVEDBYMATTER │ Collectif Malunés

 

With devilish pleasure, the acclaimed circus ensemble Collectif Malunés knocks down the walls between various disciplines. This is something the collective has in common with performance artist Kasper Vandenberghe’s MOVEDBYMATTER. For BITBYBIT, their first joint production, Kasper and the Bruyninckx brothers find themselves moreover in the balancing act between connection and resilience on the one hand and the inevitable fall on the other, the loss experience that lurks around every corner. You can take that quite literally: under Kasper’s richly imaginative direction, the brothers experiment with a particular circus technique where they are completely dependent on each other for their own safety. It is the culmination of a year of artistic research and physical training, but for the brothers it is also the culmination of a lifetime of sharing love and suffering. They grew up together and later became circus artists together. They have spent more time together than many couples of the same age. They then let go of each other little by little, which led them to experience a great loss. BITBYBIT is the ultimate attempt to get closer. This is the first time the duo of brothers is performing together in the ring.

BITBYBIT is the physical dissection of a brotherhood. Reduced to a mischievous look of recognition or magnified on the contrary to mythical proportions like Cain and Abel (brotherly hatred) or Castor and Pollux (brotherly love). They fashion themselves according to each other’s virile image or try to escape from it precisely. They openly confront who they have become both thanks to and in spite of each other. As brothers they remain condemned to each other anyway.
