Prototype is a dance performance centred around the loner Lucien Goethals (1931-2006), a pioneer of Flemish electronic music. Sound designer Daniel Vanverre, with whom Vanrunxt collaborated with for Discografie (2013), will manipulate these recordings live on stage. The performance will act as a journey through time, towards what used to sound like the music of the future back in the 70s and perhaps still does today. Koenraad Dedobbeleer has developed a set inspired by the American artist Ellsworth Kelly (1923-2015). His work has always played a crucial role in the development of Marc Vanrunxt’s work. Kelly’s pursuit for abstraction can be translated into dance as an impossible challenge; dance can never be abstract because there are always live bodies on stage. For exactly this reason, abstraction is always a fascinating challenge within dance.
