FRIDAY 19 en SATURDAY 20 MAY 2006

Open Circuit: iNTERaCT invites a host of internationally renowned artists, brings them together with local actors and creates the necessary space tot develop challenging collaborations on a short term. Having music as main denominator other artistic disciplines as dance, theater, contemporary art and new media are some of the possible basic ingredients.

The Open Circuit production platform answers with iNTERaCT to the international call for improvisation and cross pollination ‘within’ and ‘across’ disciplines. Since the late nineties Kunstencentrum BELGIE developed a cutting edge and highly successful program showing improvisation in all it’s layers with renewing events like Japanimprov, the critically acclaimed musicNOmusic festival and a still ongoing series of free-jazz and improv concerts (The Thing, Chicago Tentet, Aaly Trio, William Parker, Paul Lytton, Thomas Ankersmit, Sunny Murray, Peter Brötzmann, Fred Anderson, Hamid Drake, Matthew Shipp, Susie Ibarra...).

Documenting this unique event (recording, filming, photographing) is a major part of iNTERaCT. The artists will be followed closely during their short but very intense preparation time. This will result in an exposition already during but also after the two day iNTERaCT event.
