Something RAW- with Rudi Laermans

"Choreographers are more and more ready to be guided by film. Not so much that they take film as their departure but they use the lens of the camera to look at everyday life. The makers have come to the realization that everything we see has been seen through the eye of a camera. performances are created that make use of a play, fast forward and delete button. And the audience is equally familiar with looking at the world not directly but via film or TV so they are not going to be worried by it. But should dance still be performed live?"
