An historical and artistic research on improvisation, oral history & sound, catastrophe aesthetics and changing production formats in the nineties.
Crash Landing Revisited (and more) is a research project that Myriam Van Imschoot is leading since 2007 and that operates as an umbrella structure for collaborative artistic research on improvisation, oral history & sound, and catastrophe aesthetics. It was hosted in residences at Kaaitheater (2007-2008) and in 2009 at the Jan Van Eyck Academy. Its name refers back to the central case study in this project, Crash Landing, an improvisation performance series curated by Meg Stuart, Christine De Smedt and David Hernandez between 1996 and 1999.
