The year is 2020. From Australia to the Campine, nature is on fire. There is rapid deforestation, constant building projects, and millions of species of plants and animals are under imminent threat of extinction. How long can we continue to saw off the branch on which we sit? For this sixth edition, Ecopolis is again inviting a broad range of writers, academic experts and thinkers from civil society.

Fri 09.10 - Sat 10.10.20

Each evening Khadija El Kharraz Alami invites somebody else on stage. A performer, artist, actor, writer, human being, dancer... always a woman. You witness their first meeting. Re-claiming Space is an exploration of the space of womanhood and how to transcend it. Khadija’s work process is characterized by leaving certain things undetermined, so the performance takes shape onstage.

Tafukt/The Sun/Athena is a dance solo and the first part of a trilogy focused on epistemologies and mythologies of the Tamazigh – the indigenous population of Northern Africa. How can we challenge the current canon? Can performance function as a tool of resistance? Radouan Mriziga seeks to create a space for reflections on the past in order to strive for a more inclusive future.

‘I resist the laziness of resistance. I am disgusted by how rage imagines itself to be a valid argument. I am ashamed of the dullness of the screamers. After Otaku, In Onaanvaardbare Staat and Habeus Corpus Joost Vandecasteele is returning with this new solo.
