Following their research on the relationship between altered states of consciousness (trance, hypnosis, dream) and artistic practices, Coupé Décalé will focus on artists working on the edge of the visible and the invisible. How does the body become a medium to worlds that transcend and prolong us?
What practices can be imagined to engage us in other relationships to the real? To be sensitive and permeable to what happens?
Through the encounter of artists, artworks and researchers (choreographers, visual artists, performers, video artists and researchers in history of art and human sciences) we will ask ourselves how to amplify the perceptions of reality and summon new imaginaries for creation.
This year the Coupe Décalé festival will travel in two cultural spaces of Molenbeek; it will begin at L’ESCAUT on February 28th and will end at La Raffinerie on March 1st.
