BAL MASQUE FRIDAY 16 & SATURDAY 17 APRIL MODENATIE – ANTWERP Bodies, masks and a party Performances, installations and video A project by wp Zimmer in association with MoMu and FFI, presented as part of the ‘Driemast Festival’. Throughout the building, performances, installations and video can be seen, created by young performing artists and a film-maker. They are fascinated by masks. Because they have such a direct and powerful impact. Because they can be both odd and liberating. Because they make bodies speak. Because they make the many hidden aspects of identity tangible. In the meantime you have a drink in the central space on the ground floor (Forum), which will be transformed into a ballroom with bar. With a strict dress code: black. Every visitor wears a mask, which has to be worn all evening and night. The masks are to be designed by several Belgian designers. Seeing and being seen here take on a completely different meaning. • The designers who have agreed to design masks include: A.F. Vandevorst, Veronique Branquinho, Bruno Pieters, Haider Ackermann, Lieve Van Gorp, Tim Van Steenbergen and Christian Wijnants. • The artists participating are: Davis Freeman & Lila Mestre, Liesbet Adriaensen & Katja Dreyer, GisPle Vienne & Etienne Bideau-Rey, Maria Clara Villa Lobos & Inneke Van Waeyenberghe. • Set designer: Geert Peymen I really like this idea.
