Postcards from the Future: De kaart voor het Noordstation
This season, the C&H collective will be creating eight postcards in eight Brussels neighbourhoods. The series started in Molenbeek during Festival Kanal. These postcards foretell a situation which will take place in the future, at the appointed time. During Spoken World it will be the turn of the North Station.
The card for the North Station pays tribute to the station as a complex urban space where many social worlds tolerate and cross each other's paths. At the invitation of C&H, people who use the North Station every day (travellers, the homeless, people with no papers, tramps, youngsters, etc.) worked on a number of scenes in which they themselves act. For the North Station card, C&H is joined by Christiane Huber.
The postcards are available free at the Kaaitheater and other places.
