My Talking Is My Dancing
Masterclass on the occasion of Golden Hours by Rosas
With Femke Gyselinck (artistic assistant Rosas)
The twin title refers to a meeting between Brian Eno’s album Another Green World and Shakespeare’s queer comedy As You Like it, a play about an idyllic golden world of the Forest of Arden into which lovers flee from a corrupt court.
Percussion’s irresistible force belongs to all times and cultures. It is the engine of celebrations and rituals. It makes people one, whips them up, and brings them into rapture. Popcorn is an irresistible showdown between three young male’s bodies and a drummer playing live on stage.

With heavy labour to surface brought
That lie and mock me in the brighter air.

The Leuven vzw Straatrijk wants to promote breakdance as a way of life / culture / sport and give as many youths as possible the chance to get in touch with breakdance. Apart from breakdance and hip hop, vzw Straatrijk supports all forms of street sports and street culture.
