the silencing (working title)


The Silencing (working title) investigates the relationship between collective practices of attention and a nature that is in a process of silencing. Or rather, it explores the narrations that we – as humans – create around nature and the sounds we decide to select from it. Through a performative and participatory strategy, The Silencing (working title) aims to engage the audience in a collective reflection: how can we collectively approach the sounds of a world that is silencing? How can we imagine a future beyond those sounds? For this project, I collaborate with dramaturg Simone Basani and sound artist Pali Meursault.

The Silencing (working title) – creation still in progress – will premiere at Kaaitheater, Brussels, in April 2022.
