Dance of the Seven Veils
Salomé has been turning heads with her infamous veil dance for centuries. Like many other female figures, her ultimate surrender to seduction was hatched by a series of male artists.
Dance of the Seven Veils strips Salomé of that dominant, sexualised male gaze and lets this incarnation of lust reveal and conceal her inner contradictions. An unveiled Salomé dances her dance: the inescapability of human primal forces on a silver platter.
Director Aïda Gabriëls invites musicians Colin H. Van Eeckhout (CHVE & Amenra) and Pieter-Jan Van Assche (Innerwoud) together with soprano Astrid Stockman for a sweltering banquet beyond the boundaries of their own genre.
Fuelled by their multilayered soundscape, German Jauregui joins the entourage for a dance, releasing primal forces, desires and fears. Visual artist Rui Barros manipulates and gets manipulated by his very own creations.
