As part of the current exhibition project What is this World? by Bik Van der Pol, dance and performance artist Helena Araújo will host, together with sound designer Marnix Van Soom, a tea party with the world on Friday February 11. You are cordially invited to listen and merge with the world as a multitude of voices. And all that over a cup of tea, with something to eat provided as well. A warm and surreal setting sets the scene for an exchange of stories, thoughts, and feelings about the world we are living in. Together we imagine what other possible worlds we could construct or even shift to.
Helena Araújo is a Brazilian dance and performance artist based in Brussels. She interprets works, creates her own and shares her practices with workshops. She also writes poems and recently started writing songs. She believes in the potential of diverse expressions and collaborations, and in anything that constantly redefines itself and makes space for the poetic and political to intertwine. From February 8-11, she is working at PARK to prepare this performance, in dialogue with the world.
