What is it?
Alexander Vantournhout and Bauke Lievens Aneckxander is on at Jacksons Lane in London, from Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th January 2016.
A tragic autobiography of the body, Aneckxander unfolds in a minimal setting with one acrobatic body, a few carefully selected objects, and music by Arvo Pärt.
Balancing on the fine line between tragedy and comedy, Alexander Vantournhout rewrites the autobiography of his own body; from subject to object to matter. It all started when someone told him that his neck was rather long, the result is a raw self-portrait in which the body both exposes itself to and tries to escape from the prying eyes of those looking at it.
There will be a post-show discussion following the performance on Saturday 23rd January. Please note that Aneckxander contains nudity throughout.
Aneckxander is part of the London International Mime Festival 2016.
Jacksons Lane is a multi-arts venue in Highgate, north London, housed in a striking red-bricked gothic church conversion. Jacksons Lane’s artistic vision is to support emerging and established artists working within the fields of contemporary circus and performance.
