Fleur Khani - Conspiracy Theory (working title)

Fleur Khani is een Brusselse muzikante, theatermaker en actrice. Ze studeerde theater aan het Koninklijk Conservatorium in Antwerpen en daarna vervolmaakte ze haar eigen artistieke taal in het postgraduaat programma a.pass (Advanced Performance and Scenography Studies) in Brussel. In 2013 kreeg ze de danceWEB Scholarship (Wenen) voor haar performance werk dat de voorbije jaren getoond is in Wenen, Berlijn, London en Brussel. Ze werkte ook voor kunstenaars als Ivo Dimchev, Jeniffer Lacey, Michael Roskam, Claudia Bosse en anderen. In 2016 ontving Fleur Khani steun van de Vlaamse overheid voor de theatervoorstelling Homework.

Tijdens de Zomer Academie zal Fleur research doen voor een nieuwe voorstelling die ze graag eind 2018 wil afwerken, met als werktitel Conspiracy Theory. Fleur zal samenwerken met coach Bart Capelle en focust zich op de dramaturgie van haar voorstelling. Op vrijdag 25 augustus 2017 om 15u kan je het ontmoetingsmoment bijwonen. Toegang is gratis, maar graag reserveren via magalie@lod.be. We spreken om 14u50 af bij LOD, Bijlokekaai 3, Gent.

'I want to work around the subject of the Truth and the apparent need for secrecy around it. Through text, voice and singing on stage I want to research how I as a world citizen position myself towards different religious and intellectual affiliations that all claim the truth. On a second level I want to expand that content to contemporary media and marketing where desire and mysterie are constantly created in order for to want what we cannot have. Could the obsession around truthfulness and right information be driven by the same desire to have and to know? 

The research is currently still very general and conceptual. Concretely I am currently in residency at the Fondation Boghossian in Brussel (Villa Empain) and I’m reading books about the history of freemasonry and specifically freemasonry in Belgium. I find it so fascinating, this idea that thought and human knowledge can be free or unfree, forbidden or permitted, hidden or openly shared… Simultaneously, through the readings, I get more and more fascinated by the apparent fear for these “free thinkers” that existed/exists in our society. And the implications on a political, social and individual level are numerous. I keep thinking about this quote of Jesus: “now go and tell no one” - which could also be the best marketing punch line ever.

From my readings I want to write texts and these texts I want to perform. Very simply, starting with my own voice and from an individual standpoint. Speaking, singing, possibly including some effect pedals and sending the words through Ableton Live. I want to find a deeper meaning in the texts through adding theatrical and spatial standpoint.'
