‘Prélude à la mer’ in a yurt near a pond?
You’ve missed those showings of Thierry De Mey’s recent dance film Prélude à la mer, based on a choreography by Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker and shot near the Aral Sea? Well, you can go and watch that triptych whenever you want, this summer… in a yurt near a pond. The only thing you have to do is drive to the castle of Seneffe (near La Louvière). Parc en mouvement/Park in beweging is the title of a parcours, set up by Thierry De Mey and Charleroi/Danses in the lovely gardens of that castle. The walk leads you to a couple of installations/films, artworks and labyrinths by the Belgian composer/filmmaker. A nice try but much more could have been made of this. I’d expected more of it. But if you go: be sure to bring four friends. It might be fun to follow those five coloured tapes along that one path and see how you end up performing a little choreography (and bumping into one another) while walking.
