Karel Tuytschaever - STRANGER

A tribute to the vulnerable man today



Karel wants to pay tribute to him: the man.

Who and where is he? The man is looking for himself. How do we get in touch with him? The man seems to have disappeared today. What does it mean to be him?

STRANGER flirts with the different sub personalities of the phenomenon man, and is an attempt to focus the man image again. This installative dance performance exposes the perspectives of one male fragile body.



Karel Tuytschaever (°BE, 1985) graduated from the Royal Conservatory Antwerp in the Drama, an acting education led by Dora van der Groen. He is an actor, teacher and founder of the platform for his own hybrid work, BARRY. Starting from a passion for the body, BARRY produces work in between performance and visual arts, with attention for sound and image. The hybrid oeuvre includes next to (dance) performances also installations, theatre texts, publications and film.



Note: The performance STRANGER connects dance and film. This work-in-progress presentation gives a foretast of the dance solo that will be part of the actual performance, and in the end will create a dialogue with the film. The performance will have its Belgian and Dutch première in September 2019. Stay in touch via www.platformbarry.be.
