Haushka’s Ghost Piano show in collaboration with filmmaker Jeff Desom, is a unique commisioned project by Plazaplus. Artist in Focus of this second PLAZAPLUS edition is Sophie Clements. Sophie will show her mesmerising awarded piece ‘Evensong’ and will perform live with her band. Italian artist Quayala presents STRATA2, a cinematic and surreal installation work . Natures is an audiovisual performance that explored the relation between nature and technology, performed by Quayola with Mira Calix and Oliver Coates. Recoil performs an interactive dance piece with motion-detection technology and stunning organic movements. Other curiosities such as Francien van Everdingen, Ilan Katin, Raquel Meyers& Goto80 and Culture TV are not to be missed either. Hans Beekmans will be sharing his thoughts about the history of Live Cinema, and a special screening-programme. The best of Optofonica’s live cinema is to be experienced every day in a one hour screening. Last but not least, there will be live music in the cafe every night, and the Sjansmachine will be able to let you make new friends for life!
