The noisiness of comforting

A performance by Maarten Seghers, in a confrontation with the artists, musicians and dancers Fritz Welch, Simon Lenski, Nicolas Field and Mohamed Toukabri, for whom he wrote an invocatory song about the noisiness of comforting.

• Maarten Seghers creates objects, installations, performances and music. He has been a member of Needcompany since 2001. In Kaaitheater, Seghers staged the solo WHAT DO YOU MEAN WHAT DO YOU MEAN AND OTHER PLEASANTRIES for which he was nominated for the 2015 Prix Jardin d’Europe for choreographers.

Pull off your heads and put them on a pillO
Caress your minds, forget your sorrO

Then knock on your head, it will sound hollO
We’ll stuff it with stuff and then you try again tomorrO
Make your own flag, hang it from your windO
You know what you want, you don’t want what you knO
Like: the tragedy of PinocchiO
Is that he said ‘yes’ but meant ‘nO’
And that’s what made his little nose grO
And so, in no time, he gained a kilO
The challenge of this particular show, thO,
was to have words ending with O
