Garden of Chance is an illusory space-time in which protagonists Kurt and Christian create a surrealistic and pataphysical garden. A space of dance and poetry to give way to wonder. Chance is the fruit that grows on our trees. Come have a taste! Chance is the living subject which guides our sensations and observations.
A Belgian multidisciplinary artist, Kurt Demey serves as artistic director for the Rode Boom company. He uses the techniques of the world of illusion and mentalism to create poetic tales and surrealistic shows and performances which reveal our desire to know the hidden meaning of things.
An Austrian based in France, Christian UBL finds inspiration in this dual affiliation and sees choreography as a collective art in which “identities and origins” mix and clash to create a work, a human experience. He is also the artistic director of CUBe, the author of nine plays, and an associate artist with La Briqueterie CDCN du Val-de-Marne until December 2020.
