Pieter De Buysser: Caveland, undomesticated.
While we are in this cave, and as long as we don’t see a way out yet, we have a unique opportunity to investigate our relation to the stars and the solar systems that are so eminently unreachable. The painful distance we experience here in this cave, that haunting gap that separates us from the universe, will allow us on no other way to conduct our research. The inevitable starting point will be to investigate in what sense Letizia Alvares de Toledo, the Argentinian writer that had an explosive, illuminating effect on Borges, might lead us into the most vibrant question that haunts today’s cosmologists and physicists: the Theory of Everything. It will not be the theoretical nor fictional work Miss Alvares de Toledo has produced that will lead us, it will be the striking coincidence of a pneumothorax that so unfortunately has hit a member of the audience during my previous lecture on her work at the university of Mar del Plata in September ’15, when I was still innocently and naively living outside this cave. (The similarities between this cave and a big black tongue are purely coincidental). In my attempt to assist the detective investigating the pneumothorax incident, I accidently caused the death of causality as we know it. Unable to fix it, but eager to know more, I embarked on an expedition with a mourning, jobless zombie-like detective on my heels. Despite these rather uncomfortable travel conditions, (the moment where finitude came to an end was in particular most challenging for my speech impediment) I have discovered elements of a new cosmology that I need to share with you, since it has a far reaching political impact. We will have to address this free of all spectacular speculation, as well as free of all anthropocentric empirical slavery. All we need is some acrobatics of the tip of the tongue and, for now, a cave.

Begüm Erciyas & Matthias Meppelink: Voicing Pieces (try-out)
Voicing Pieces is an active exploration of how much a voice can resonate. Guided by a simple script, the audience becomes spectator of their own voice. The own voice becomes the site of the event. Isn’t one's own voice always inauthentic and uncanny? What constitutes a voice exactly? And who is speaking, when we say something to ourselves? Voicing Pieces is an ongoing process by Begüm Erciyas and Matthias Meppelink
to 3 spectators at a time
Duration: ± 15 min
Concept: Begüm Erciyas
Artistic collaboration: Jean-Baptiste Veyret-Logerias, Christophe Albertijn

Texts: Matthias Meppelink, Begüm Erciyas, Emi Kodama, Jacob Wren
