Dancing Darlings is a performance labyrinth with many different rooms created by Lili in collaboration with visual artist Elise Gyshelen and the mentorship of Bart Cappelle, Ruud Gielens and Geert Opsomer.


A performance journey that reflects on the relationship between the self and the other, the interior and exterior.

Dancing Darlings talks about the desire to be loved.  The desire to structure a self. 

Stage and audience intertwine when spectator and performer get lost in a voyeuristic game of watching and being watched. 


During four days different people were invited to go, alone and for one hour, on a journey with three performers within a sensorial multimaterial labyrinth. The visitor follows and constructs a relation with the performers that tell their stories through moving images that unravel through touch with objects & other bodies, creating together with the visitor an unique ritual.
