Departures and Arrivals



Vooruit, Trafó

‘Hear’ is an aural choreography around and between the spectators. Performers Benjamin Vandewalle and Yoann Durant developed a physical soundscape that explores the evocative power of sound. For each edition of 'Hear' the creators work with a choir of local volunteers, making each performance a unique visual composition.

Former P.A.R.T.S. student Benjamin Vandewalle was a guest at Vooruit a few times before, with the performances ‘We Go’, ‘Point of View’ and last year during SMELLS LIKE CIRCUS with 'Inter-view’. With installations like ‘Bird Watching’ and ‘One / Zero’ Benjamin explored our perception of space and movement. His work plays with observation and with our way of looking at reality.
