I think we need to talk (try-out)

Coproduction 2021

An interactive performance with a lot of wool and few words

Collectief Eland - I think we need to talk - try-out 16:9

I think we need to talk is an interactive performance with a lot of wool and few words by the Ghent Collective Elan(d) and Manoeuvre. You are invited to find a place in the pink wool universe that unrolls before your eyes. In this collective experience, you literally join in on a story about connection.

The day before the showing you can participate in an open atelier in which, together with other participants, you will finger crochet costumes, decor or thread. Workshop participants sometimes find a place and role in the performance. What Collective Elan(d) presents during Open Studios XL is a work in progress. They show where they stand in their research and invite the public to participate in their process.
