Construction of a wilderness/walking route


Construction of a wilderness/walking route

During her residency Salomé Mooij will be working on a preliminary study for her new work: ‘Construction of a Wilderness’. In this work, she wants to look at the city as a natural biotope. A teeming habitat where the plants between the paving stones, the moss on the roof and the city fox live together with the car, waste and drinking water.

In the preliminary research, she collects all kinds of shelters for nature in the city and is curious about our attitudes and relationships to them. How and where do plants and animals live in the interstices of our constructions?

Salomé Mooij

1990 NL
Salomé Mooij is a performer and theatre maker, born in Den Haag on 10th of December 1990. After she graduated from High School Salomé moved to Belgium to study Philosophy at the University of Ghent and Theatre direction at RITCS (Brussels).

In 2018 she started touring in Belgium with her own collective Dividu. In Europe she toured with Dying Together from Lotte van den Berg. The coming years Salomé will develop and work on her own artistic practice, supported by SoAP, C-Takt, De Brakke Grond, wpZimmer, De Nwe Vorst en METROPOLIS/KIT.

Salomé makes insitu work on the cutting edge of performance and artistic research: physical thinking exercises that are characterized by a longing for scanning, unfolding and connecting the micro and macro levels in our existence. In this way she tries to understand the world around her and to approach it as openly as possible. Within these theatrical frameworks, she examines the connections that are possible between different realities in the city, paying special attention to what is hidden from our view. By enlarging the details, she hopes to make visible a field of force in which the public, as a partner, can explore its own relationship.
