Film installation based on the performance Shirtology (1997), created for the opening of Centre Pompidou in Malaga in 2015. The work features one performer and a collection of T-shirts that are changed and removed to display different messages. Bel’s work explores the relationship between choreography and popular culture, and dancer and spectator, often using humour as a device to break the usual formality of a theatre setting.
