‘WORP’ is an cross-media improvising collective, combining musicians, visual artists and dancers. Through each performance, they explore the borders of the different media involved. Sound receives a body. Movement creates traces. Form becomes sound. A game of feedback arises, dissolving the contours between instruments, players and material.

Peter Jacquemyn (double bass, voice), Jan Pillaert (tuba, voice), Klaas Verpoest (visuals), Geraldo Si (dance), Vincent Caers (live electronics, percussion), Sofia Kakouri (dance) and Lazara Rosell Albear (dance) have been performing together in different configurations. Fundamental to their collaboration is the improvisational approach, the equality of art-forms and the transfer of each performer’s attitude into an unique interdisciplinary experience, adopting each others strategy.

By definition, music and movement are temporary, mobile and repeatable. Plastic arts are unique, static and made for eternity. The collective brings unique, not repeatable music and exercise combined and confronted with plastic arts and this with a pronounced temporary performance character. The action leads to the idea, the interaction shows the way.

The first performance of Worp happened as a closing session of the ‘Loops’ concert at Stuk, Leuven. Worp / Sichtlaut also featured the LUX showcase closing event at Vooruit, Gent. Worp #2 was presented in the Sound/Vision series during the International Rotterdam Film Festival in January 2018. Worp #3 was a performance at Lovt. Worp #4 happened at the open studios in BatimentA. Worp #5 was a performance during the Show Research #7 at Terrarium.
