THIS PERFORMANCE TOOK PLACE IN 2008 This is not a body is the second in a trilogy of productions developed as part of Retina’s exploration of the body. Inspired by Rene Magritte’s art work Ceci n´est pas une pipe, this piece draws its’ audience into the world of the unknown and unexpected. The mood shifts between the serene, the frantic, and the playful as weightless bodies contort through the unique choreography. The combination of Filip Van Huffel’s choreography, Brian Hartley’s visuals and six outstanding dancers topped with Axelle Kennes’ original sound score and Dave Boyd’s percussion proves an exhilarating and bold mix. The cross European artistic team serves up a delicious blend of movement, image and sound in an electric environment. 'An exhilarating journey of motion and emotions' Helen Cooper, Dance Expression Suitable for ages 14+
