In relation to their new piece, Die Ausschreitung | Le débordement | The Incident which will premiere in December 2021 in Ballhaus Ost, Cécile Bally and Emma Tricard are inviting you to explore the notions of speculation and adaptation by drawing on the narrative genre and the Science Fiction’s aesthetic. During the workshop we will share with you our toolbox of practices based on visualization, speculative practices and discourses, speech and movement games and collective writing strategies in order to unfold a multitude of possible futures.

Can we decide about the future or do we have to adapt to the future?

The aim of the workshop will be to write together a part of a Science-Fiction text that will become the base of our next choreographic work, Die Ausschreitung. This project is rooted in discussions about the political power of SF as a catalyst of social change. The participatory dimension of this project responds to our desire to understand the writing of a performance as a collective and political practice.

This workshop will be the first of a series of 5, happening in different countries (Belgium, France, Germany and Chile) and in different languages, during which the text will keep on expanding until it becomes a complete story which will be reworked by the author Clay A.D.
The collective nature of the writing process, as well as the locality of these workshops, allows us to observe what remains singular to our increasingly globalized imaginations. What would be the setting of a future, between a post-apocalyptic world and a utopian world, in Santiago, Berlin, Aix-en-Provence or Kortrijk?

This workshop is made for a group of 5 to 10 people, is for free, will be held in English and doesn’t require you to have previous theater, dance or writing skills. The location is on the ground floor and fully accessible to wheelchair users. Covid Regulation will be followed.
