video intro

Film maker Jorge Leon, member of the B-Chronicles think tank, presents a video portrait based on
an interview with the former dancer Ronald Burchi. After training as a modern dancer in the USA,
the American Burchi used to live and work in Europe in the early nineties, didn’t manage to tie work
permits to his actual working situation and ended up with an illegal status – a situation which is
actually more common in the dance world than we know or want to admit –, to eventually go
through a legalisation procedure in Belgium. Between two chairs sheds light on the many realities of
the alien resident, making the fragile balance between the artistic visibility of international artists
and their social and political rights clear in a striking way. In this work, Jorge Leon continues his
artistic research on the format of the video interview as a potential portrait.
