I am working an a new project called ‘Reach’. For my explorative research I was invited to visit surgeon Guus Bökkering and his operating rooms at the Princes Maxima Hospital Utrecht. A beautiful insight into a place where everything has its function.
Project ‘Reach’ is made in collaboration with The Grey Space in the Middle in The Hague, where I am an artist in residence this year.
A great honour to be a part of Straight Through The Wall last weekend, A guerrilla screening downtown New York City.

The shows will take place from 11-13 October 2019.
In a hypnotised state, Karel van Laere will hand over his body to a choreographer and three dancers surrounded by a live audience. He will ask the dancers to look for physical borders, to experiment, and to make him the subject of their research as the “Non-Present Performer”. Afterwards, there will be a post-show discussion with hypnotist Joris Waayer, anaesthetist Rutger van Leersum, the dancers and the audience.
11 October 2019 at 19:00
12 & 13 October 2019 at 15:00
The venue will be announced later.

Reflect gives you the chance to observe a break dancer up close. You stand on top of the work and thus become part of the choreography that takes place beneath you. With this continuous video installation, Van Laere explores whether visitors can be moved in addition to being transported. Credits: Karel van Laere in collaboration with D.o.P Peter van Til and dancer Joey Schrauwen. This installation can be seen free of charge in the Eye Arena.
