The Penelope video installation is a unique collaboration between Voetvolk and Dirk Braeckman: a visual reconsideration of Lisbeth Gruwez’ magnetizing 20-minute solo in which she conjures up in dance all the sidelined women of the Odyssey.

Two inextricably connected silent black-and-white films gently transfer Gruwez’ choreography into a new medium and aesthetic, approached from different angles. Yet, the underlying friction between movement and standstill is preserved, as the very act of turning is all about finding an unmoving center in your being: the watchful state.
