Please note that Inter-view is performed at the Bagarmossen square.

With Inter-view, Benjamin Vandewalle brings the theatre back to its essence, its roots, its
etymological meaning: “to watch, to contemplate”. Placed in the public space, three boxes looking like puppet theatres or fairground stands, offer themselves to the passers-by’s curiosity. A simple opening enables to put the head inside each box. What happens next is a big surprise… It will surely be a poetic and sensory encounter.

Choreographer Benjamin Vandewalle is fascinated by observation. His creations are guided by the actions of looking and being looked at. In Inter-view, Benjamin explores the essence of the gaze. There is no script, only the magic of a spontaneous visual encounter.

Benjamin Vandewalle studied at the Royal Ballet School of Antwerp and graduated at P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels in 2006. Since early on, the central theme in his work is perception. He creates movement – not only in the performer’s body but also in the spectator’s. His work is about sharing new experiences and perspectives with a large audience.

The poster is partly made by hand and is an original poster that is only available in one copy in this particular version.
