Ghost Party (1)

Event Slider

The artists Manon de Boer and Latifa Laâbissi present the performance Ghost Party (1), in which they summon a genealogy of references shared with multiple voices.

In 2016, artist and filmmaker Manon de Boer and choreographer Latifa Laâbissi maintained an ongoing dialogue, addressing and summoning the multiple voices that inhabit their bodies and thoughts. By capturing and ‘cannibalising’ each other’s influences, the artists created a genealogy of shared references.

‘Animated’ by the words of artists and authors such as Beyoncé, Marguerite Duras, Pier Paolo Pasolini, Angela Davis and Sophie Taeuber-Arp, the artists present their first performance together, in which they play with and blend language, accents and voices. From this exchange, conversation emerges as a work tool and performative form.

The Ghost Party project unfolds in two parts. The film Ghost Party (2), with free entry, will be presented on 15 and 24 September.

Latifa Laâbissi mixes genres and redefines formats, bringing to the stage multiple off-beat elements that channel different figures and voices. Since 2011, she has been artistic director of the Extension Sauvage programme and festival. In 2016, a monograph on her work was published by Les Laboratoires d'Aubervilliers and Les presses du réel. Until 2019, she was Associate Artist at CCN2 and at Le Triangle – Cité de la danse à Rennes. She's currently Associate Artist at Théâtre National de Bretagne in Rennes.

Manon de Boer studied at the Akademie Van Beeldende Kunsten (Rotterdam) and the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten (Amsterdam). The artist explores the relationship between language, time and truth to produce several films in which the medium of film itself is continually questioned. Her work has been shown at the Venice (2007), Berlin (2008), São Paulo (2010), Taipei (2016) and Documenta (2012) biennials, as well as at several international film festivals and monographic exhibitions.
