Fluid Matters: Always coming hole + Leaking Letters with Paula Almiron & Elowise Vandenbroecke Join us on the 8th or 9th of October for Fluid Matters: Always Coming Hole + Leaking Letters.
The evening begins Paula Almiron's performance 'Always coming hole'. 'Always coming hole' is a choreographic reading space about Lake Poopó, a disappearing lake in Bolivia. This work grew out of a long-term research into the interconnectedness of bodies of water located in South America. Taking Lake Poopó as point of departure, the work investigates ways of listening to its movements and force. Two bodies on stage perform an audio guided choreography. They embody imaginary and real bodies of water being conducted, molded, and re-shaped. How and where do these aqueous bodies come together and differentiate?
Following Almiron’s performance is a further exploration of liquid knowledge as we share 4 letters addressed to ‘you’ (be it singular or plural). As a discursive companion, various viewpoints are bought forward to open up lines of thought on fluidity. The letterwriters will touch on the amniotic, liquid performances, watery thinking and the entangled and permeable nature of fluid bodies.

Paula Almiron is a dancer and choreographer from Argentina based in Brussels since 2016. Her practice unfolds at the intersection of dance, choreography and ‘eco-fiction’, a literary genre that focuses on non-human stories and the performativity of the space. Within this research she relates to fiction as movement, and to choreography in an expanded way. Through her work, she investigates the potential of choreography as a listening device, to create alternative maps of spaces focusing on the dynamic relationships that already exist between the agents themselves: the potential of choreography to write Relationships.

Elowise Vandenbroecke (1993) works as a freelance dramaturge. After her art history studies at the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven, with an exchange year at the theater institute of the Freie Universität Berlin, she studied International Dramaturgy at the University of Amsterdam with an exchange at the University of Cape Town. During this period her focus was on post-colonial studies, queer studies, new materialism and relational dramaturgy. Elowise has worked with Francesca Lazzeri, radical_hope / Heike Langsdorf, Rita Hoofwijk, Rob Smorenberg, ROTOR, and Zoë Demoustier, among others. She is also an active member of platform In De Maak, Platform Dramaturgie and writes articles for festivals and magazines.
