Between dream and reality

In the saga of Paardje Malegijs, three girls are seduced by a fabulously beautiful horse. It takes them on a two-day trip where the line between dream and reality is completely blurred.

In the project De Manen Opzij, this is translated by four musicians from different music scenes, from impro-folk over tribal jazz to sludge metal. They are active in numerous projects, including mOthA, CHVE, Amenra and MDC III.

Armed with a unique set of instruments, they alternate drawn-out improvisations with intense punches of chaotic drum rolls, fuzzy bass drones, distorted hurdy-gurdy and exotic wind instruments. Dancer Nele De Baets - Lemmens floats like a ghost through the visual elements and the sound.
