Stretch + Timemonochromes is a performance set up by director, choreographer and visual artist Isabella Soupart and musical director /pianist Guy Vandromme where the idea of their collaboration is to research into the existing biotope of a museum and more in particular the actual relation between the work of art and the public. How do we relate to our heritage, what kind of presentation formats do put the work of art in an active dialogue with the visitor, how creative the museum or the curator will involve the visitor in a search for new forms of perception?

Belgian choreographer Isabella Soupart and British visual artist Jonathan Sullam explore notions of stretching in movement from several angles within the architecture of a museum. The idea is to question the accelerated rhythms of pop culture. What happens visually, physically and audibly when we stretch those “rhythms”? What effect does that have on our perception and how can the art experience be reshaped individually and collectively through this modification?
15 dancers/performers will interact within the space of the museum. The audience is invited to come and share, within a time span of 6 hours, an hypnotic experience.
The Total Theater Awards have blazed a trail of recognition for independent artists, creating innovative theatre and performance.” We celebrate artists and companies making some of the most exceptional work at the Edinburgh Fringe -artists exploring boundaries of what performance might and can be. The creative risks and explorations made here we know will influence the sector and grow audiences for years, and perhaps decades to come.” Co-Directors Jo Crowley and Becki Haines.
