Cléo De 5 À 7 - exploring Cinema

This magnificent near real-time film is Agnès Varda’s most well-known feature and considered part of the French nouvelle vague canon.

Following Cléo, a coquettish cabaret singer, as she wanders the streets of Paris while awaiting the possibly dire results of a cancer test, Varda traces the inner growth of her female protagonist from constructed feminine ideal to more fully realized person over the course of an eventful afternoon. Featuring cameos by Jean-Luc Godard and Anna Karina, Cléo De 5 À 7 at once vividly captures the era in which it was made while continuing to resonate over time.

Opening Mosa design exhibition

An exhibition of designs by the Mosa Design team, featuring iconic designers like Edmond Baby and Pieter Stockmans. Beauty and functionality are key to these designs. In this exhibition, Centre Céramique wants to emphasise the shape and beauty of the material and the designs by placing them outside the normal context of the coffee table and into a museum setting. By approaching these pieces from another perspective, it becomes apparent that there is room for the artistic qualities of the designers to shine through. The designers created aesthetic, functional and affordable designs with a timeless style, now immortalised in porcelain.

Patricia Guerrero - Distopía

Dancer in Focus of the Flamenco Biennial 2019, Patricia Guerrero (1990) is the great flamenco star in the making. After her starring role in Andrés Marín’s Don Quixote, the dancer from Granada proves herself again in Distopía.

This is her second solo performance as one of the most talented and original dancers of her generation seeking a new language of Flamenco. Guerrero’s body sparkles with flamenco, drawing the most amazing geometric figures. Playful, light footed, but with a supernatural power in her feet. Her rhythmic body erupts in Distopía, a story about female power and vulnerability in an ideal society. The Dutch philosopher Hans Achterhuis wrote that “utopia turns into a dystopia if people are hit in their intimate being: romantic love, fear, anger.” Patricia Guerrero plays and dances from these emotions between dream and reality, truth and madness in a pulsating flamenco soundscape. Energetic, with a slight nod to Pina Bausch. “A theatrical beast, a dancer with supernatural power and appearance” wrote the Spanish press. Patricia Guerrero: A Star is Born.

It It Anita

The Liège band It It Anita with their 90s noiserock riffs and primal cries may seem fairly uncomplicated, but if you listen carefully, you’ll hear subtle nuances and intriguing sub layers. Besides a seething fire, there’s also intense desire, paralysing fear, anger and restlessness.
