12 Nov 2010 – ‘Karfour 2010’ @ Campo Nieuwpoort = an evening program with several works, and a variety of media & backgrounds. Live action, home videos, interviews, dance, animated objects, songs, travel, sculpture, short films, music and small theatrical effects: These are just some of the ingredients Benaouisse Ben has composed together in a unique ‘soiree composée’. Kapotski was invited to follow the process of selection and the formation of the global evening.
We decided to make some installations that would function as markers for the different bigger parts of the evening, also forming some kind of abstract glue (since it’s the only thing that repeats during the whole evening). Each of the mini-sound -installations could work stand alone. We only manipulated the sound very subtle.
At the end of the show we played a ‘grand finale’ with the four installations together.
