Where the fuck am I ?
A piece for the ghosts of our lives, passing through us, in our bodies void of temporality.
We dance a chaos of images, a collage of sound references.
Images never stop crossing, synchronizing, disconnecting.
We are possessed by our archives.
Monkey, Robot, Michael, Raphael, Pippi,
An incessant flow of representation that carries us away.
A multiple body created by symbols that cross us and build us,
created by remains that weigh us down,
created by the movements and sounds that make us feel good.
“Honey, I know, I know
I know times are changing
It's time we all reach out
For something new, that means you too
You say you want a leader
But you can't seem to make up your mind”
- Prince Rogers Nelson

Zoé Lakhnati is a dancer and maker based in Brussels. Graduated in ballet from the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Lyon in 2019, she continues her studies and research in contemporary dance and performance at P.A.R.T.S. Zoé is working with choreographers Robyn Orlin, Mette Ingvarsten and Leila Ka.
Always on the move between Brussels and Sète, her home town in the south of France, she likes to engage herself in creation processes and organizing projects. Her research in dance revolves around the body as a container of memory, a Mnemosyne atlas in movement, and collage as performance protocol. For two years now, Zoé has been creating De l'impertinence in collaboration with Dora Pentchev, a residency platform for emerging and multidisciplinary artists.
Per-Anders Kraudy Solli is a Norwegian/Latino dance artist residing from Sandefjord, Norway. Before arriving in Brussels, he attended “Spin Off Forstuduim I dans”, a preparatory education for contemporary dance artists in Oslo. Although his medium is performance, crucial aspects of his artistic practice are text, speech, sound, and music. Both his performances and practices deal with issues regarding: the auto biographical, imagination, emptiness, observation, reflection, and reality. Per will soon be graduating from the BA program at P.A.R.T.S (Performing Arts Research and Training Studios).
“Where the Fuck Am I?” is part of Saturday 9th July program A.
