Why is it important to cast a spotlight on the marginalized history of feminism in Romania and Eastern Europe? And what might this mean for our collective, historical consciousness? With a collage of feminist voices, artistic gestures, historical avant-garde, and traditional songs, Eszter Salamon focuses on Romanian histories.

Philosopher Bruno Latour and theatre maker Frédérique Aït-Touati reflect on the relationship between human beings and their environment. Can we change our perception of the earth? No longer from a great distance, like a blue marble flying through space… But from the inside out, from the wafer-thin outer layer of the globe on which all life, human activity and resources are concentrated?

Jonathan Burrows, dancer and choreographer. Matteo Fargion, musician and composer. Always the two of them… but not this time! They invite four local artists – Mette Edvardsen, Dounia Mahammed, Lili Rampre and Andros Zins-Browne – to address the subject of ‘the possibility and impossibility of community’. The ingredients? 72 clay objects created by the performers, group singing and Indian drone sounds on smartphones.
