Rósa Ómarsdóttir - Iceland
Language No Problem - Dutch première
20:30 - 21:30
Vlaams Cultuurhuis De Brakke Grond
Traces is an immersive installation performance in which a magical, dynamic and ever-changing landscape evolves all around you. A place where people become objects and objects come alive, grow and multiply. Traces is a multi-sensory experience that blurs the boundaries between us and our environment and questions our place within a living world. A dreamscape remembered with wonder amongst the overwhelming realities of this strange world of plants and water and sound.
A thin layer of moss covers everything; green fur covers everything.
The landscape is moving. She is moving.
Here, where we are, everyone is alive.
Here, everything is alive. That mountain looks like a jellyfish. That plant is smoking. She makes it rain – just for a moment. Nature, she sings. Nature adjacent. The humming chord between a person and a thing. An ear, an eye, an anything, a nothing, not above or outside, a fancy, a chimera.
Everything is breathing in this world.
