Time and progression of society allows us to question traditions and preconceived social constructs that seem natural ways of living. As a childish game, we revisit the places where we grew up and the moments in life that made us realize our own queerness. The house, the room or a piece of furniture remind us of these moments and through performance, we queer these artifacts and aim to celebrate the today and the possibilities for a queerer future.

Openings-show 'Flemish Week' - Expo2021 DUBAI
Mobility District Expo2020 - DUBAI

Chokri Ben Chikha and Flanders Investment & Trade look at the world exhibition in Dubai as the perfect opportunity to bring the broad creative economy to the fore through the positive migration story of Flanders. The Flemish Xperience multimedia dance theater project fits into each of the 3 central sub-themes during this expo: sustainability,opportunity and mobility.
In Flemish Xperience, visitors witness a multimedia dance theater performance by young talented Flemish performers. In a series of multidisciplinary tableaux vivants (dance, image, word and music) they confront the audience with the past and present of creative entrepreneurial Flanders. On the one hand, they bring the long history of Flemish mastery to life through movement. On the other hand, also contemporary Flemish Masters from the arts and the corporate world will be integrated in this performance.
Based on contemporary dance, high-tech projections, and a mix of Arabic and Flemish music, the visitors will be virtually immersed in an extraordinary experience that responds to the many successful migration stories in Flanders.
In this multimedia dance theater performance, Action Zoo Humain and Chokri Ben Chikha guide the international audience to distill the ingredients of the 'Flemish mastery' from these success stories. In this way they put Flanders on the world map as an excelling and creative region.
