Who are the real immortal heroes?

Four dancers move in stop-motion to a steady beat. Like immortal superheroes, they continue endlessly in a cycle of attacking, defending, wiping sweat, and reloading. They seem to build their imaginary super-bodies and super-narratives effortlessly. Yet gradually small cracks begin to show in their grand gestures. Are they also trapped in a system with no way out?

In STILL / ALIVE, choreographer Mooni Van Tichel brings up questions around desire, violence, power, glory, pain, and vulnerability. Who has the right to defend themselves? Who gets to be violent without major consequences? And what violence is made (in)visible? Inspired by virtuosic bodies and the imagination of science fiction, she explores utopian and dystopian worldviews for our future.

Mooni Van Tichel has a background in hiphop, house, and breaking. In 2021 she graduated from P.A.R.T.S. with a master’s degree in contemporary dance. Her graduation solo Deep Nyx was presented at Festival Cement, Amsterdam Fringe Festival and Moving Futures Festival. She is also a member of the collective leprojetgeo, which organises activities related to physical connection, touch, and dance with the residents of care home Bellevue in Forest. Since 2023, Mooni is house artist at workspacebrussels as part of a three-year development project.
