Lands of Concert
Lands of Concert is presented in collaboration with Vlaams Cultuurhuis de Brakke Grond.
Lands of Concert is a living practice by Jija Sohn in collaboration with Andrea Zavala Folache, Lucy Wilke, Oneka Von Schrader and Julia Reist. They work on a continuous reshaping of body-mind territories, an exploration to break through established personal, cultural and theatrical codes and boundaries.
They create a space where the lines between instructing and performing and between staging and witnessing are blurred. It is an ever unfolding landscape, physically exploring the notion of the other and the intimacy we can find there. Lands of Concert is inviting the audience to come on this journey of fantasies, questions and collective care. The performers propose different protocols of giving – and receiving and guide the public to be part of a topography of ‘elevated actions’ where movements, sounds and objects are continuously shifting, losing their initial formal and defined boundaries. It is an invitation to an experience of liquid roles and relationships that change the immediate present we are in.
