Essential at KMSKA

This dance film was made possible through the collaboration between Radio Klara, the Royal Museum of Fine Arts Antwerp (KMSKA), Taichi Sakai + Shane Urton representing Opera Ballet Vlaanderen. 

Premiered 14.12.2020 exclusively on Radio Klara's app.

Here, the dancer could be you.  Wondering the halls of KMSKA in search for what is missing. The dancer's thoughts keep them from reaching potentially new spaces until waves of non-verbal feelings take over. In Essential at KMSKA you jump between the historic halls to the new modern wings of the museum.
