We are not in balance. Not in agreement as migrating birds are. Late and overtaken, we hurriedly try to catch the wind and fall into a random swamp. (Rainer Marie Rilke)
Among Romans, birds and storms brought signs of change. Are we able, in our current situation to navigate the landscape as we perceive it and at the same time dare to imagine what comes next?
“CURRENT UTOPIA” is a commission programme, initiated by the European N.O.W network.
We were seeking artists who are ready to question the status quo; artists who are able to envision the possible and embrace the unknown. How can we transcend the already known strategies for the performing arts in order to develop further its poetic side? Which community or communities should be involved and why? How can artists apply creativity, aesthetics and style as a tool of social transformation?
The selection process took place from November 2015 to April 2016.
From July 2016. Ief Spincemaille will regularly share the DIARY of his creation process here online.
