README.1st is the first part of Oortocht member Isabelle Stockmans solo project “Stendhalsyndroom”.

Isabelle will be locked up at Croxhapox for one week. During this period she will have no social contact and her only company will be books. If you want to know more about this project, go to her website and/or take a look at the live stream where you can observe Isabelle 24/7. If this is not enough, pay her a visit (don’t try to communicate with her), daily, between 4 pm and 7 pm at Croxhapox.

If Only I had a Heart @ Arena Festival der Jungen Künste, Erlangen

July 1st till 6th you can find the Oortocht members in Erlangen where they made a coproduction for the Arena Festival der Junger Künste. Tickets and information for the festival are still available on the website ( Arena Festival website ) or at the box office.

“Last year, the prize for coproduction was given to the Belgian performance-group Oortocht. This year, the artists Brecht Hermans, Isabelle Stockmans, Marieke Breyne and Thomas Vermaercke will prepare a performance with the support of students of the FAU. The performance is inspired by the Swedish TV series “Äkta Människor”, also known as “Real Humans”. The discussed topic is the human fear for beings that are nearly human, like zombies or humanoids. The main focus lies on the human body and its transformation to a “hubot”, its influences of speed and presence as well as the direct interposition of fear of hubots and the overcoming of it. Surreal images and humour present the body as instrument and the hidden fascination for it.”
