Reconstruction of a shelter

PROJECT

Reconstruction of a shelter

Imagine a space where the functional noise briefly silences. Or perhaps resounds mutedly. A space where a heartbeat slows down. As if there were another time, another rhythm and other things suddenly matter. Such as flickering of light and shuffling while outside there are other worlds at the same time.

This performance is more deeply rooted in the hiding places of the metropolis: spaces and places where you can stand back without having to justify yourself. Where can you hide in the city? What can shelter be? An exercise in thinking together about the importance of shelters in our urban environment.

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.
