In 2023, Dance Reflections by Van Cleef & Arpels co-presents with French May Arts Festival BSTRD by Katerina Andreou at the Kwai Tsing Theatre as part of a Dance Festival in Hong Kong.

BSTRD is an energetic and minimalist solo performance featuring Katerina Andreou and a single vinyl turntable, based on the notions of impurity and transformation. What if the idea of purity is an illusion and everything was made of a much more complex material?

She is accompanied by a pounding soundtrack and inspired by house culture. Pressed onto vinyl and activated at the beginning of the piece, this score is a backdrop to an exploration of both political and poetic issues focusing on a dramatic bastardised figure. Katerina uses this hybrid music to explore the very origin of gesture.
