Welcome to Caveland!

installation — premiere

Les Brigittines

Welcome to Caveland! is a two-part project in two stages. Firstly there is poetic fiction, with the performance La nuit des taupes. In a second phase, the cave becomes a stray installation. Like a travelling circus or a fairground attraction, Welcome to Caveland! treks from town to town seeking refuge in theatres and at festivals, finding room there for performances, workshops, and other activities. In Brussels, Caveland makes its first stop, taking up residence at Les Brigittines, this year’s festival centre, where an extensive programme of activities is proposed. The cave is an ideas laboratory, a safe and private microcosm, an open space for furrowing, excavating, and digging; a utopian place where dreams can come to life and the world can be viewed with fresh eyes. Come and have a look!
