Renowned dance dramaturge Guy Cools, producer Kathelin Gray and choreographer Jean Abreu offer in-depth presentations and performance. A pervasive sense of grief, anger and alienation has invaded every strata of human existence. Loss and separation are part of life, but now mass extinction, climate crisis, wars, breakdown of interactions and identities, genocide and forced migration impact everyone. Traditional mourning practices, shamanic traditions, trance rituals and radical performance are psychological and cultural tools that throughout history have been used to process and to heal loss and alienation. Abreu and dancers creates a physical language to articulate the beauty and power of vulnerability in the body.
