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

musical theatre

Théâtre Varia
Sat 25.03 - Sun 26.03.23

Three solos by three generations of women; based on the life and work of the Australian ecofeminist Val Plumwood who survived a deadly attack by a saltwater crocodile. Be prepared to delve into a scenography in which humans do not play the main role. Can we find consolation in the horrific fact that we are food?

A Forest Silent Gathering


A Forest Silent Gathering
A Forest Silent Gathering
Thu 27.04 - Sun 30.04.23

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.

Vania Vaneau


performance dance

La Raffinerie / Charleroi Danse
Thu 09.02 - Fri 10.02.23

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.

De Kriekelaar
Fri 03.02 - Sat 04.02.23

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.
