Some use for your broken clay pots
13.06 – 14.06.2013
A new constitution for democratic systems - that is the remarkable starting point of ‘Some use for your broken clay pots’, a tripartite project by Christophe Meierhans. A theatrical performance, a book and a film will be based on a legal text that prescribes all the institutions, organs, laws and procedures necessary for the establishment of a realistic and functional democratic regime. In December 2012, Meierhans presented the main outlines of this newly imagined political system during Working Title Platform #5, already stirring much debate. For this edition of WTP, Meierhans will offer us a first glimpse of the monologue performance, which will be staged as an election campaign meeting.
Working Title Platform #6
By organising residences, Workspacebrussels supports the work of young artists, and twice a year presents the results in Working Title Platform. Don’t expect any finished productions, but exciting work in progress that may continue to evolve. In addition to the stage presentations, there are also discussions after the shows, the Field Notes publication on the residences, closed feedback sessions, a writing workshop and encounter sessions with performing arts professionals.
