In their durational live project Basically, Nikima Jagudajev harnesses the choreography of play to draw visitors into the intermediary spaces of WIELS. Jagudajev's worldbuilding is shaped together with a group of artists, creating a hybrid space that incorporates live music, food, a deck of cards and nonlinear dance choreographies that fold in on themselves like portals through time. Performers and visitors share this slippery universe.
