"In “Dance of the7 Veils”, a fragment of Vanrunxt’s play “Sur scène”, Marc dances his solo in a park in Schilde. Van Kerckhoven films the six minutes choreography in one take. For three successive days, at six in the morning, at noon and at six in the evening, this scenario is repeated.  These three takes are superimposed.  The images are recast in unreal colors. The lyrical soundtrack is composed by the outdoor lowkey camerarecording of Strauss, injected with the nervous sound of the camera manipulation and the natural sound of birds chirping on three different moments on a summer day."
