ACT

Art, Climate, Transition

ACT is a European cooperation project on ecology, climate change and social transition. In an era of climate breakdown, mass extinction and growing inequalities we join our forces in a project on hope: connecting broad perspectives with specific, localized possibilities, ones that invite or demand that we ACT.
ACT is initiated by 10 cultural operators from 10 European countries working in the field of performing and visual arts. ACT is a project supported by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union for a period of four years (2019-2023).

The hope I am interested in is about broad perspectives with specific possibilities, ones that invite or demand that we act.’ – REBECCA SOLNIT

Four different dance landscapes are unfolding on stage: the theatre space becomes a void, an opulent dumpsite, a synthetic desert and a horizon. They are inhabited by deviant figures, inanimate, hollowed-out surfaces – strangely but precisely ‘charged’ in their body movements and presence.

In Nebula, Vania Vaneau approaches the relationship between human bodies and nature as a meeting of force fields in a post-apocalyptic context. Nebula is a crossing into the unknown and a moment of eclipse that offers a glimpse at other possible worlds.

Can we find consolation in the horrific fact that we are food and that we belong to an ecological cycle of life and death? Be prepared to delve into a landscape in which humans do not play the main role.

In Forest Silent Gathering verzamelt een kleine groep toeschouwers zich bij zonsondergang midden in een bos, en volgt een soundtrack via een koptelefoon. Er wordt een audio-sociale setting gecreëerd, die het mogelijk maakt om ‘samen alleen’ te zijn.
