The global Covid crisis brought healthcare into the spotlight. But care extends beyond the strictly medical: it includes everything we do to preserve and restore the world. Can care be a new starting point, based on connectedness and generosity? Can care, as an emancipatory principle, underpin politics and economics? Ecopolis 2021 makes room for these questions, and many more, during a day of lectures, conversations, workshops, literature and performance.

Mokhallad Rasem and Kuno Bakker previously created the production De verse tijd together. In Homemade they pursue their collaboration, but this time to build a place where they can live together. The time for action and building has come. How can they create something that will make them both happy? Something that meets their needs in terms of aesthetics, safety, security. And sustainability, of course.

This last session in our Series of More-Than-Human Encounters is entirely devoted to oceanic storytelling in kinship with hydrofeminism. This form of feminism is particularly sensitive towards watery creatures and our solidarity with them. It is also inspired by music and song-making practice – songings –, believing them to be a means of interspecies community creation and resistance.

Fri 29.04 - Sat 30.04.22

What if the sounds from your living environment start to disappear? David Weber-Krebs invites you to listen collectively to a world that increasingly is going silent. Accompanied by composer Pali Meursault, a group of young storytellers will lead you through a slow process that leads to silence. Until there are no more stories to tell.

Listen Here: These Woods is a literal invitation to go into nature. Set to the soundtrack of the forest, of wind rustling through the leaves and birds zipping by in the branches, the forest is these five dancers’ home, as they draw you into feeling its dynamic aliveness. The performance becomes a beautiful exchange between forest, dance, and audience, as we all momentarily share space with other living creatures in nature. A show for anyone who wants to strengthen their connection with nature!
