A performative game about those obligations which contemporary life imposes on us: to do multiple things at the same time, aka multi-tasking.

Society is constantly attempting to speed up its output, offering us increasingly senseless technologies that seek to influence how we behave and render our know-how obsolete. We’re becoming multi-tasking beings, assisted in performing ever more actions in a minimum of time. Trapped in this futuristic scenario, implementing with efficiency and despite ourselves a maximum of diverse and simultaneous actions, while at the same time we are forgetting the limits of the human body and mind. Following the infernal rhythms of this life-size board game where we try to excel as this multi-tasking being, to recover our place in society, while being disempowered by so many distorted options.

Tatiana Bohm (BE)

It’s the audience that will energise and embody this performances. A deck of 78 playing cards is to be found at the entrance to the room: there are four categories of actions to be executed, marked by different colours on the back of the cards… The game can be played by a minimum of three and a maximum of ten people.

Tatiana Bohm has lived and worked in Brussels since 2005. She exhibits and performs, solo or collectively, in a wide variety of venues such as ISELP (Brussels), Les Drapiers Gallery (Liège), Wallonia-Brussels Centre (Paris), Ixelles Museum (Brussels), TAMAT (Tournai), Art on Paper (Brussels), 100 Titles Gallery (Brussels), Fine Arts Museum of Arras, Damien and the Love Guru Gallery (Brussels). Irrespective of her chosen medium , each of Bohm’s works presents for her a field of action: sculpture, installation, performance, drawing, video, photo… In her latest installations, Bohm has opened up new avenues of research integrating the collective gesture, in the form of a performative and participative installation. In her work, the individual artistic gesture is being shifted toward a shared construction.

Trouble #12 « It’s about time » 

Trouble #12, « It’s about time » : it’s the question of time (and especially the time we allow for ourselves, that we give to relationships and to works so that they can resonate) that will be at the heart of the Brussels biennial of performance. To survey notions of historical time, stolen time, out-of-time, time loops, generational differences, protracted periods … or on the contrary, very brief moments. Are you losing your bearings? It is high time that Trouble comes back to trouble you!

The Performance Event in Brussels is Back!

Launched in 2005, TROUBLE has ever since been the international performance event in Brussels. As of 2019, Studio Thor has been organising and producing the Festival, with its studio and environs in the heart of the city’s popular commune of Saint-Josse serving as its nerve centre. TROUBLE is held every two years, in the odd years.

Trouble: philosophy

TROUBLE has retained the ingredients that ensured its previous successes. With its dense and wide-ranging program, the five-day long event focuses on numerous artistic proposals that are both out-of-the-ordinary and differ from routine formats. Performances involving the human body, yet created by artists whose roots are in the visual arts, contemporary dance, experimental theatre, oral poetry, music or the night scene… for a vibrant mix of artistic families and audiences. Instead of spectacle/s meant for mere consumption, real-life experiences are on offer: self-involvement, risk-taking, vulnerability, interactivity, finely balanced between local personalities and artists from elsewhere–– and often discoveries. To ensure a more diverse vision of art, our program gives pride of place to women, queers, racialized and minority groups. We also offer a platform to young artists, thanks to the collaboration with the performance course at Brussels’s renowned visual arts school La Cambre (ENSAV). While the Festival incorporates a demanding reflective aspect, it by no means excludes an engaging playful dimension!
