A transdisciplinary live performance.

STYX is a live installation, an encounter between visual arts, performing arts and the audience. The museum, the collection and the architecture are scenography, co-performer and point of contrast in dialogue with the performance. STYX serves as a vehicle for projecting one's reflections and contemplations: the audience is invited to walk freely through the created universe and experience it independently. For each performance location, STYX is recreated within the space. A base of 5 artists - the original cast includes Mireille Capelle (mezzo-soprano), Adriaan de Roover (electronics), Timo Tembuyser (voice & movement), Matteo Sedda (movement) & Marc Tooten (viola) - will be complemented by local performers. 

Director Aïda Gabriëls creates her work by reflecting on the opera genre in the present. STYX was originally conceived within the context of Clair/Obscur, an exhibition of Renato Nicolodi at Axel Vervoordt Gallery.
