The Brussels-based performance group CREW, initiated by artist Eric Joris, develops art that allows us to explore self-representation in systems that cross over between installaton art, theatre and performance. In all CREW’s artworks, the participant is encouraged to give less importance to his or her cognitive senses in order to allow his or her sensations to create a representation of themselves. The overlap between identity and otherness is therefore to be found at the very heart of the sensitive body. The running thread in the work of CREW is Eric Joris’drive for a deeply rooted utopia: the search for a medium that both dissects and expands our experience. CREW creates in hybrid forms and presents in various settings (performance arts, visual arts, large public events, scientific conferences,..) all across Europe, China, Canada and the US.
