Bijloke Wonderland 2024

laGeste, Muziekcentrum De Bijloke, LOD muziektheater, Kask, I.O.A. and STAM present Bijloke Wonderland for the fifth time, from 15 to 1 September at the Bijlokesite in Ghent.
Music, dance, theatre, visual arts and guided tours for young and old.

laGeste presents The Refectory on 23, 24 and 25 August. The new musical adventure of the laGeste choir conducted by Steven Prengels.

The choir with some 70 members came into existence as part of the production Mein Gent, but in the meantime also leads a life of its own. The choir sang for the birth of laGeste in De Materniteit, and participated in parades and productions.

For Bijloke Wonderland, the choir sings a brand new programme in the beautiful Abbey Refectory of the old Bijloke Convent (now part of STAM).
Steven Prengels wrote challenging new music to assembled texts by Goethe, Verlaine, Lord Tennyson and Kurt Schwitters with Liszt, Bach and more Bach and ... Sia as musical inspirations. A delightful musical mash-up!

laGeste presents Crudo on 29 (première), 30 and 31 August.

Crudo is the collaboration between dancer-choreographer Lisi Estaras, art brut curator Pierre Muylle and visual artist Klaus Compagnie.
What connects them: their interest in art brut or outsider art. Which is the name used to refer to art by people who do not consider themselves artists, art by people with mental disabilities, psychiatric patients, hermits, eccentrics, obsessive collectors, etc.

Crudo begins as a lecture but turns into a performance that seeks equivalence.
Lisi, Pierre and Klaus rehash dance, language and sign, into a playful and colourful new world.
