DISQUIET (cancelled)

Lisa Vereertbrugghen

– Update November 29: Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, the performances of Lisa Vereertbrugghen are cancelled. Ticket buyers will hear from us by email as soon as possible. –

As in her previous works Softcore, a hardcore encounter and Camouflaging Kelly, Lisa Vereertbrugghen once again explores the possibilities of hardcore dance styles. In DISQUIET her focus is on disruption and dystopia as inherent elements of hardcore subgenres. All these genres are marked by an intensified bass and drum, a minimum speed of 160 BPM and a tendency for disruption of the flow. Focussing on these sonic ruptures, pauses and bursts, DISQUIET explores how they can inform and stimulate the body. Dancing hardcore is presented as a break from structure, looking for a disquieted elsewhere.
