Dancer/choreographer Charlotte Vanden Eynde and double bass player/composer Nicolas Rombouts are doing a research project this season that they will work out in a performance next year. They met in 2015 when they were invited to perform a public improvisation in Brussels. A special artistic interaction unfolded, whereby their two ways of creating proved to have many similarities. Both Vanden Eynde and Rombouts strive for an honest approach to their “instrument”, in accordance with their own being. They work intuitively while keeping mental control, as a form of thinking. Improvising together means thinking together. The concept of thinking together, as two parts of the same brain that can also function autonomously, is the starting point of Hyphen. This season, they want to do interdisciplinary research in order to create a vocabulary and test the concepts for a performance. In what way will there be room for improvisation? Is the structure fixed or is it rather a set of loose elements? What is essential, is the power and vulnerability of acting and the presence in the here and now.
