Kevin Trappeniers develops a stilled, visual and physical theatrical language in detailed, sensate work at the intersection of visual arts, theatre and dance. He creates wordless performances where acting, lighting, sound, body and scenography are equally important.
Asymptote (2015), a physical and visual theatre performance, stems from a research residency conducted and accompanied by arts work space L’L (Brussels, BE). The piece is still touring.
In 2014, Trappeniers worked at TAKT Dommelhof (Neerpelt, BE) at his the dance performance Selfed for Plesni Teater Ljubljana (SI). The year after, he reworked this choreographical debute with a Belgian crew to physical theatre: Drag Chain/Push Chain.
Before this, he created his own work in between theater and installation: Schadenfreude, Sic Transit Gloria Mundi, Darkdroom...
Parallel to this, Trappeniers works as a freelance performer: a.o. in the performances/installations of the "Saturn" series by Karl Van Welden (United Planets), the series "Monster!" by Abattoir Fermé, the exhibition dance performance "Who Makes Paintings Anyway?", "The Wind Egg Project" by Haseeb Ahmed and Egle Budvytytes‘ exhibition choreographic piece "Skateboard Prayer, or Head below the Heart".
Trappeniers also gives workshops, lectures and creates scenographies for other artists and companies, and will finalize his first video art installation in 2016.
