Geert Belpaeme

Geert Belpaeme hosted another workshop with the members of 'Performing Objects' exploring the relation between the body and architecture. 'Performing Objects' experiments with objects and their possibilities to act as an interactive performer towards its users or audience. This project researches different ways artists can anticipate this process during the conceptualisation and the conception of their work.

Geert Belpaeme is part of l'hommmm, a performing arts collective of Mats Van Herreweghe and Geert Belpaeme. Their work balances on the boundary between theatre, dance and philoshical experiment.

l'hommmm's artistic language is playful and abstract and starts from an uninhibited imagination. Mats and Geert try, with every performance, to create a new language, a new way of generating meaning and communicating with an audience.
