Leen De Graeve & Karin Verbruggen - My Number Ones

maa 16/11/2015 > zat 21/11/2015

Leen De Graeve (RITCS, zie!duif) and Karin Verbruggen (DanceWEB, Olga de Soto) are researching their body and life by means of pop history. How do they relate to the thousand-five-hundres-seventy-six songs that hit number one during their lives? Leen searches for the political groundworks of seemingly shallow pop tunes and relates them to her own life experiences. Karin brings a canon of clip dance and body language out of hundreds of video clips, in which she searches for icons.
