Inspiratum Festival “Per-Form the Void”
Kanaal, June 27th -June 30th.

This first edition of the Inspiratum Festival has “Per-Form the Void” as theme, based on the concept of the exhibition “Destroy the Picture, Painting the Void”. Paul Schimmel curated this exhibition in 2012 in the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles. The festival program is a musical ode and counterpoint to this maxim with contemporary work from both Eastern and Western composers, sound and video artists, including improvisation, spontaneous composition and dance in confrontation with the avant-garde music of the 15th, 16th and 17th century.

Hosokawa, Ikeda, Aphex Twin, Ralske, Capelle, Kosi Dance Group, Kee Yong Chong, Henderickx, Glass, Stockhausen,Cage, Riley, Vivaldi, Frescobaldi, Gesualdo, amongst others will be rediscovered together with world premieres, commissioned by Inspiratum.

Performers:
HERMESensemble , Il Pomo d'Oro, Minimalist Dream House ( Katia en Marielle Labèque), Ryoji Ikeda, Kurt Ralske

Special attention has been given to an extensive program tailored to children.
Klara will host a live program onsite on Friday evening.

The Inspiratum Festival “Per-form the Void” will be held at the site ‘Kanaal - A City in the Country”, the former distillery alongside the Albert Canal currently in the process of being transformed by Vervoordt r.e. into a residential area. The visitors of the festival buy a combination ticket, with the possibility to combine their concerts of choice allowing them to discover the authentic warehouses by Cousée and Goris, and also the new cubes by Bogdan & Van Broeck
