Benjamin Vandewalle

Studio Cité

I see I see you what you don’t see and it is… a dancer, a viewer, a curb, a passer-by, or no, it is a dancer.

Studio Cité orients, directs, diverts and distorts your view of the world.

Step inside a driving mirror cart by yourself, form a dancing circle with your fellow audience members, or stand on the side-lines watching how people with periscopic masks try to find their way. You are both a viewer and a performer.

As a choreographer of sight, Benjamin Vandewalle plays with the way we observe reality and challenges our perception. How do we observe our environment and the people within it – and do we dare and surrender ourselves to new perspectives?

In Studio Cité, Vandewalle organizes an artistic funfair that offers unexpected experiences on Brussels’ squares.
