After the success of Tornar (2015) and INVITED (2018), dancer and choreographer Seppe Baeyens is continuing his research into forming a temporary community with Birds. For this new creation he steps outside the walls of the theater building and enters the public space together with a group of performers and musicians. The normal course of things is interrupted there – sometimes invisibly, then again clearly. In playful interactions between spectators, participants and chance passers-by, surprising compositions are created time and again, in which everyone appears to have an influence on the whole. Birds is a generous social choreography in search of connection and imagination.

Seppe Baeyens

The work of Seppe Baeyens moves on the border of what is traditionally regarded as theater and dance. He turns that border into a fertile one
artistic research space for a social experiment that focuses on connecting. “There is a whole world outside the theater walls that is still
does not have access to dance and theatre”, according to the choreographer.
With this statement he summarizes the core of his own work.
