A broken hand break is a classic ingredient of nightmares: losing control, not being able to stop, heading for a crash. On the other hand, it may also signify a sense of free and uninhibited momentum. But is movement always a move forward? If you move in a circle, you end at the beginning and begin at the end. In Ghost Writer and the Broken Hand Break, three performers spend three quarters of an hour turning around their own axis – a movement that in Sufi ceremonies is thought to lead to religious euphoria. In Miet Warlop’s version, it becomes an experiment on the fine line between maintaining and losing control. It is a combination of swirling dance, recital and concert. How can you find a balance between self-control and devotion?
• Miet Warlop studied three-dimensional art at the KASK in Ghent. Her work threads together images to create astonishing tableaux vivants. She has presented several performances at the Kaaistudios (e.g. Springville and Big Heap/Mountain). She was part of the programme of Performatik17, for which she also created the poster image.
