THIS KIND OF BIRD FLIES BACKWARDSPRINT THIS PAGE
“This kind of bird flies backwards” is a work in progress by Natalia Pieczuro in collaboration with Colin H. van Eeckhout from the band AMENRA.
Inspirations where taken from the moments that make one feel alive.
Natalia's choice of working with AMENRA – a Belgian post-metal band – was directed by conviction and feeling. For her this kind of music speaks about the intensity of these experiences - often too hard to describe with words. By using her body she constructs her language and confronts us with a question: 'How do we live the moments of extreme happiness and sadness'? 'Are these moments, moments of sharing or moments of loneliness'?
While there is already a 20 minute version of this performance - one that is under constant evolution - Natalia is working on a longer version. This work aimes to be both possible in a black box and as a site specific event. It has already taken place in a forest (somewhere in Switzerland), on a music festival (Copacabana Gent), and soon between dunes in RAVERSYDE.
