Prèmiere of Letters 2 Dance


Set design / BE

In a danced analysis of the alphabet, the dancer and choreo­grapher Femke Gyselinck investi­gates the relati­onship between movement and typography, dance and the shape of letters. The produc­tion is a choreo­graphic extension of Gymnastics of the Mind (2020), a research project inspired by the book ABECEDA (1926). That resulted in her own dance.

Gyselinck invited Aslı Çiçek for the scenography of the project. Following the prèmiere on 3rd & 4th of March in Kunstencentrum Nona, Mechelen, Letters 2 Dance will be on stage of several venues in Belgium during 2022.
