First / Geert Belpaeme
First is a collaboration between Geert Belpaeme and pianist/composer Heleen Van Haegenborgh. They were inspired by Tik Tak, Barnett Newman and String Theory to reflect on the linearity of our consciousness.
First starts from the idea that we, humans, are the creators of the reality in which we live through language itself. First is a pamphlet: an ode to beginnings; a prelude danced by the first man, for the last man.
First received the Roel Verniers Prize in 2016 and played at the Antwerp Theater Festival in 2018.
