Dancer and choreographer Youness Khoukhou studied at P.A.R.T.S. and worked with Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker, Claire Croizé and Pierre Droulers, among others. After his previous group work Becoming, he now creates his first solo performance The Noon, with which he continues his research into the relationship of the body with its immediate environment. This project is being developed in collaboration with, among others, Les Brigittines, Stuk Leuven and Charleroi Danses.

“Even the statement ‘this is a hand’ can be mistaken. Even with calculations you can make mistakes. Only in specific circumstances is error excluded.” Ludwig Wittgenstein
Noon follows no logic. We witness the mental journey of the choreographer, who explores the meaning of movement. Fueled by doubt, movement is repeated and viewed differently, by adding text, objects or different lighting. How do we read these changes and what role does our own memory play? Is it possible to really look with an open mind?
