Roel Heremans - Quartet B: Still Life

Quartet B: Still Life is a new work by Belgian radio and interdisciplinary artist Roel Heremans created for and& 2020. In this self-performative piece for four participants, Heremans invites the audience on a mental journey via headphones. Guided by a voice, the choreography leads the participants through thought, vision and movement to a state of self reflection, which is augmented by four large mirrors in the middle. The work will be presented at the inner court of STUK, while other people are passing by and triggered by this play of stillness and meditation.
