Tania Haberland is our current writer-curator in residence. During her stay, she created an immersive poetic shelter for the Passa Porta Festival 2021, as a part of her project 'The Technology of Tenderness'. It consists of a multilingual sound collage and a video poem.
From the North to the South Station, come and listen to murmurations to rekindle humankind kindness, body and water movements that whisper, a river of voices that pulsates to the rhythm of the city, and roads that interweave stories, shaping a refuge for hearts and minds. A poetic shelter in which to (re)discover tenderness ...
With words of tenderness from Brussels residents, mixed with sounds by DJ Coline Cornélis, dance by artist Hugo Mega, video by director Romain Boniface, graphics by Amina Saadi, the voices of Lucie Pousset and Gökhan Kızılbuğa, and translations by Maïté Graisse & and Isadora Callens.
Voice Violin Body Nature
A live collage to remember the primordial relationship between nature and human beings. A poet, a violinist, a singer, two performers and a filmmaker interweave to evoke the forest's magic.
In this historical moment many of us have realized that we are suffocating the earth, her waters and her creatures, including our very own bodies, more and more. Breath is what connects us all. This is the moment to re-member the ecological interdependence that sustains all living creatures. Nature, an often forgotten resource of strength, joy and nourishment is to be loved and protected if we wish to save the human, an endangered species.
Forest Breath is an eco-meditative artivist performance that recalls the mystery of the forest through the tenderness of poetry, the wonder of music, the enchantment of song, the fascination of bodies in movement and the serenity of ritualistic acts with natural objects.
