Soma

 PREMIERE  

30/11 – 20:00 & 1/12 – 20:30
Les Brigittines
theatre in English / 50 min. 


Soma is part three in Oona Libens’ series of poetic-scientific performances about compelling but rather unknown worlds. After the universe and the sea, in Soma she takes on the familiar yet strangely unknown microcosm of the human body. The used technique plays a big role; it is uncompromisingly tactile and analogue. The corporal and material are slow and hesitating – as opposed to the ever present and fleeting digital technology.

The history of anatomy, modern images of the body, and futuristic visions of a humanity without body are combined into an illustrated scientific lecture, a reflection about what it means to be human. During the lecture, the body becomes ill. Physical as well as mental symptoms of modern diseases and disorders show up. If we use the metaphor of the body as a mirror of society, what do these symptoms indicate? Are they signs of an unsustainable condition? Are they a protest of the body against the influence the society has upon them?

OONA LIBENS graduated from KASK Gent in 2012 and has since developed a distinctly crafted universe, often taking the shape of poetic-scientific performances. She uses different analogue projection techniques while creating a dialogue between historic and recent media. Her work has amongst other places been shown at Kråkeslottet Senja (Norway, 2014), Cinema Nova (Brussels, 2016), International Film Festival Rotterdam (The Netherlands, 2017), Malmö Live (2017) and BOZAR (Brussels, 2018).
