Getting Softer x Travelling Sources, between two cups of tea
In the frame of Between Two Cups of Tea, a storytelling evening about displacement and repair, Travelling Sources invites Espace Fxmme to exhibit the patchwork project Getting Softer at Kaaistudios on October 20th.
Guests are welcome to take an itinerary in the building, navigating between forms of storytelling. First, they gather for a cup of tea in the living room of The Kitchen and in the exhibition Getting Softer by Espace Fxmme. From there on, the public can attend the storytelling Recalling History; Sitting number 6; Conjuring A Fork of Tales by Hagar Ophir in collaboration with Juna Suleiman (invited by Ariella Aïsha Azoulay) and the storytelling installation Meuse by Navid Fayaz. (For both projects you need to reserve your spot after buying your ticket, via the service mail of Kaaitheater.be).
