Blending documentary, performance and video, Bart Baele and Yves Degryse, alias BERLIN, create complex multimedia works which have been presented at major arts festivals and theatres Europe wide. In their latest work they encounter an elderly married couple living in the exclusion zone around Chernobyl. After the nuclear disaster in 1986, Pétro and Nadia, both well into their sixties at the time, refused to be evacuated preferring to stay put in their old village, a ghost town robbed of its inhabitants and cut off from electricity, running water, heating, shops and companionship.

›Meyoucycle‹ (me-you-cycle) is a political science fiction fantasy concert about expression in the age of hyper-capitalism and technological mediation. Personal ads and old-school letters, chat-bots, tweets and untameable rants, poetic terrorism, sound and image collide in a rumination on contemporary and near-future life and the intense forces and interfaces that shape it.
