In 2017 Veem House for Performance decided to transform to the “100 Day House”. 100 Days this is a house at work. 100 Days a place for art, politics, ideas and people to meet. For the remaining 265 days Veem performs a black-out. 265 days of no public programs, 265 days of ‘non-work’, 265 days a problem made visible, a house disappearing, a silence, a form of resistance. We are now in the third period of black-out as 265 days of darkness.
A situation that disorients your senses
and demands doing things differently.
An embrace of the unknown.
Half the world is always dark.
Fantasy, like poetry, speaks the language of the night.
It’s no lack of vision, but a different kind of vision.
Resist easy solutions.
How does darkness taste?
Trust as a verb.
Darkness as a verb.
Do not overproduce.
(make no) Sense.
Hold your neighbor's hand.
If you fall asleep don't fight it - dreaming might well be the way.
A fleeting presence.
A hole in time.
Making the invisible visible.
Enter a dark theater alone, take a seat and see what can’t be known yet.
Do you see that speck of light in the furthest corner?
Follow that light with your tired eyes. It’s been a long day,
I know, but keep looking at this glimpse of light.
In pitch darkness, darkness is what we see at least.
Do you remember the moment it arrived?
