With ‘Inter-View’ Benjamin Vandewalle brings theater back to its etymologic meaning: “to look, to contemplate”. Vandewalle sets up three constructions in public space, a kind of puppet show cabinets in which passers-by can stick their heads. What they get to see is a big surprise … but you can be sure it will be something poetic and sensual.

Choreographer Benjamin Vandewalle – who graduated from P.A.R.T.S. dance school in 2006 – is fascinated by observation. “To look” and “to be looked at” are the common thread throughout his work. ‘Inter-view’ examines the essence of the look. There is no script, only the magic of spontaneous visual encounters. The installation builds upon Vandewalle’s ‘Théâtre de la Guillotine’, a micro-theater for one viewer.
