The city does not exist. The city is an entity made up of performances that are acted out every day by roughly the same people who do – or don’t do – more or less the same things. Every performer constantly creates and recreates the city. As performers, we ascribe a meaning to this stage set known as ‘the city’. If we all decide to leave the set, then the city becomes a different physical and mental space.
In MAPping, we reveal the traces of the exceptional perfectly ordinary people of Brussels: Isabel, Pitcho, Amira, Roland, Benjamin, Omar en Didier. All of them artists from Brussels. Artists from an array of different disciplines, an array of different artistic circles, and multiple generations. With all the attendant consequences. Along with them, we discover and rediscover the connective tissue of the city. Without pretention, without sensation, but all the more with warmth and feeling. Each in his or her own way, the artists map their city; their home. We jump into their skin and stroll with them through their lives and stories in Brussels.
This performance is unfortunately not accessible to people who are not easily mobile, nor for wheelchair users.
