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

This October she will resume this talk in live Brussels and will be joined by researcher and ecofeminist activist Myriam Bahaffou. Join us for a fruitful ecofeminist dialogue between two researchers who value the place of the dirty, the mixture and the hybrid.

Social, ecological and economic crises force us to think about a radically different way of living. "The world is not about to end; we are already living with a different world," writes philosopher Bayo Akomolafe, speaker at the eighth edition of Ecopolis where artists, thinkers and doers break open our frames. This year, Ecopolis brings stories that depict an inclusive and sustainable future for this new world.

Enkidu Khaled and Joachim Robbrecht will close the evening at Ecopolis with the premiere of TANK TINK / ONE. They hijacked the format of the 'creative think tank' from its original military context. Along with artists, journalists and activists from different corners of the world, they examine the relationship between warfare and environmental crises in a hybrid and polyphonic lecture-performance.

MOLD isn’t just a performance, it’s also a farm: an environment where all elements interact as living cultures. Drawing on mycology, fashion, fermentation, dance and sculpture – Sara Manente approaches the theatre machine as a multiplicity of bodies.

Fri 16.12 - Sat 17.12.22

In Leçons de Ténèbres, four bodies, three adults and a child become the mouthpieces of stories that have been forgotten or that we have tried to make disappear. In turn, they bring forth visions and assist and challenge them. For this new creation, Betty Tchomanga continues her research on Voodoo cults and crosses them with questions of climatic and social emergency.

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.
