A Creative Spa 

2019-2020



In a white space lit by neon lamps, a young woman sits on a rubber mat. A fragrant mist reminds you of pinecones and resin, while soft, trance-like music plays.


In this performance about information fast food, vanity, fiction and the urge for affirmation, the artistic duo Sarah & Charles goes in search of the ultimate form of submission. In an age in which social media and the Internet are expanding our view of the world, our minds appear to be narrowing emotionally. The more we know, the less we understand. The performers invite you to a creative wellness centre where you can put your decision-making on hold.


A performance by Sarah & Charles

Performed by Siet Raeymaekers

In The Hands of Puppets 



End of 2018, Sarah & Charles were residents at KAOS, a center that is connected to the St-Alexius Psycho-Social Hospital in Brussels. During their stay, they took several interviews with patients and caretakers and addressed in these the subjects of fiction and reality and their personal relationship with them. Later they interviewed friends and colleagues in their studio and questioned similar subjects.

 

In this short movie the artists use the online ‘chat form’ to research subjects like self-analysis, personality and social relations. They address how we relate to the virtual, share our intimacy with it, and how it starts taking control.





Of Not Such Great Importance



Like many others, Davide has come to Berlin to escape the depressing state of his home country, Italy. In Germany, he hopes to separate his past from his future; to find meaning in the meaningless; to turn water into glue. Instead, as many others do, he ends up in a permanent state of impermanence and indecision. Should he keep postering forever or change his course now? Move back to Liguria or stay in Friedrichshain? Order a marinara or a capricciosa? 

Wander Meander


 

At the inauguration, Sarah & Charles put in motion the first articulation of the piece in close collaboration with performer Bryana Fritz. The performance developed in the house is based on the experience of the architecture and the way in which the space relates to its inhabitants.

 

A permanent performance in a private house. A silver nail is embedded in the surface of the terrace of the house together with a task for the collectors; to activate the piece at least once a year for 20 years.

A Day Will Come My Future Will Be Your Past



A contemporary tale about the friendship between two middle-aged women who get trapped in a wormhole between the first and last moment they've met.

With the three contrasting film genres; fiction, documentary and making of, handled in the film, the artists create an extensive web of layers. The viewer is invited to construct the storyline himself, shifting between these genres, giving significance and meaning to the story the protagonists move trough

Suspension of Disbelief



In a colorful musical film, set against a surreal background, typical of the genre, we follow a girl trough the different chapters of her life; from a young child, towards an adolescent woman. In a staged world she enticingly sings about her own state of mind. The enchantment is brutally interrupted when the set and the camera crew become unexpectedly visible. The film draws the viewer into a story within a story, lead on by an exhilarating soundtrack, trough a world filled with impossible events.
