09.12 – 10.12.2022

Elkaar samen ontmoeten in een afgebakende tijd en ruimte
Samen rituelen ontwikkelen
Opgaan in de ervaring, naar een verandering toe, naar een transitie
Zoals een overgang

We hervormen het ecosysteem, we komen samen, we gaan de nacht door

Tijd en ruimte om ceremonies te delen
Nood aan geruststelling, nood aan contact, aan bescherming
We zoeken naar manieren om zorg te dragen voor onze energie en onze kwetsbaarheden
Laat ons onze eigen fetisjes zijn

FATSABBATS is een veelzijdig zelfbeheerd platform dat ‘safer spaces’ wil creëren met en voor Brusselse queer en geracialiseerde communities. Via concerten, performances, tentoonstellingen en memorabele zweterige nachten, wordt de brede knowhow van deze gemeenschappen zichtbaar gemaakt, gedeeld en gehuldigd. FATSABBATS neemt de Kaaistudio’s in voor twee volle dagen en twee al even volle nachten.

"Let’s take the time to meet, to share our practices and questions a whole night long. Let’s try to create a community, to connect, to taka care. We have 12 hours together inside the walls of an institution. We’ll eat, talk, play, laugh, write, prey, sing, cry, rest… Fatsabbats creates the setting, the rest is up to you to invent."

With a yoga session: In this capitalist system that feeds itself with broken bodies, how do we work out health practices to support us in social struggle? How can we feel good, when our bodies are discriminated? Capucine Légelle, journalist and activist, offers a restorative yoga lab to reclaim ourself, to honour our holy intimity, to transcend our traumatic experiences, in order to (re)construct and embody with strength the figure that pleases us, in a peaceful way.
