MAde in deFENIKS/artist in residence: PLAY - Marieke Berndsen en Sielke De Mulder
27 & 28.09.2014
A girl in a house. She does her own thing, making coffee and toast with jam, singing in the shower. Above the girl lives the boy. She knows him better than anyone, because she hears everything he does. She knows what he enjoys, what he does at 9.04 am, 3.57 pm and 10.22 pm. She has never seen him, but the sounds he makes make her heart beat faster.




Soup to Walnuts - Mikio Saito (JP)
27 & 28.09.2014
Artist in residence
In his video work Mikio combines hand-drawn animation, computer graphics and sounds recorded in the neighbourhood, all in a highly individual way.

Beasts and Loners - beisspony
27 & 28.09.2014
Artist in residence
A blue-pink pony with a black mane, a horn on its head and a belly full of flattened toy cars, but above all with dirty yellow and razor-sharp shark’s teeth. Cute, in other words, but dangerous too. This is beißpony, aka Steffi Müller and Laura Theis. During their residency at deFENIKS these two young German girls are composing their own songs and making up bizarre stories which, with the requisite showmanship, are threaded together with dulcet notes on the piano and odd rhythms from an electronically amplified sewing machine. Crazy but fun? Precisely! Get ready for beißpony’s contredanse. Poetry meets anarchy!
