Alexander Vantournhout & Bauke Lievens

A tragic autobiography of the body.

ANECKXANDER is a solo in a minimal setting for one acrobatic body, a handful of carefully chosen objects and three variations on a piece of piano music by Arvo Pärt. Balancing on the fine line between tragedy and comic effect, Alexander / Aneckxander rewrites the autobiography of his own body. What emerges is a raw self-portrait in which the body simultaneously exposes itself and seeks to escape the gaze of those who are looking.

Colaboration with Bauke Lievens in the frame of research project ‘Between being and imagining: towards a methodology for artistic research in contemporary circus’, financed by the research fund of KASK School of Arts, Gent (BE).
Supported by Circus Next, a Europian dispositive coordinated by Jeunes Talents Cirque Europe and supported by the Europese Commissie.
