Decall - a musical dance theatre
The soundscape is made entirely out of sounds recorded in the streets of Brussels.
It's a wakeup call to listen and do something about the sound pollution which is present in every city.
Also the costumes of the performers reflect the dirtiness of the city where trash is lying around anywhere.

Since early 2011, Alec and Maya have been meeting regularly to create duets composed out of movement and music. They create in real time, using games and scores to develop the duet together. The result is a unique piece that can only exist as a dance and music duet, created by the specific characteristics of the situation that produced it.
Their collaboration is inspired by James Tenney's Choreogram (1965), a series of guidelines to help musicians inform their own instant composing through the dancing bodies of others. In Alec and Maya's work, however, the Choreogram is used to bring the musician and dancer into dialogue, so that no one contributor is in control at any given moment. The dancer does not surrender to the music, nor does the musician surrender to the dancer. Both are continuously trying to develop the explicit and subtle links they have established.
As they discover new sound and movement landscapes and begin to tune themselves to the tastes and differences in one another, they also uncover new ways in which to relate, slowly building a catalogue of scores to use as tools in future spontaneous duets.
