KATRIEN OOSTERLINCK: CONCEPT & PERFORMANCE | INGE VAN DEN KROONENBERG & GRIET PAUWELS: FIELDRECORDINGS & SOUNDDESIGN | NYIRA HENS: VOCAL
Audience capacity: 26 people per workshop!
You close your eyes ... Rain falls on your head, hands kneed your shoulders, a snake zigzags across your back, your arm is squeezed out like toothpaste from a tube. You open them again ... Yellow spheres around your head, green rectangles on your shoulders, a red line down your spine, blue triangles round your arms.
People taking part in MASSAGE/COLLAGE give each other a short massage on circular carpets. Instructions appear on the screen in the form of drawings, and a guide demonstrates the massage movements. You give shape to the sensations by placing stickers on craft paper. The collages become a colourful collection of experiences.
MASSAGE/COLLAGE is a safe installation involving image, sound and a guide who brings you in contact with your body and each other. An oasis of calm in an otherwise bustling BIG BANG festival.
