AQAF wanted to do more for young queer artists. Therefore we are organizing a Queer Lab at De Studio. Six young people can experiment, create and inspire one another for 10 days. You are invited to come and see what that leads up to.
Can touch this - Mery Thi Coopman & Renata Lamenza
20:00 & 22:00
Mery Thi and Renata’s artistic practices meet for the first time in 2016 with the common urge to explore the perspectives on the female body through performance. In 2018, they collaborated in the framework of Renata’s research project: ”Talk to me: feminine conversations between body, costume and movement”. Her research brought the perspective of gender inside the act of creating costume and movement where the body was experienced as a platform of experimentation.
Mery Thi and Renata collaborated in the 7th edition of the project ”Talk to me, conversation #6.9: can touch this”, which talks about eroticism from a female perspective guided and inspired by the book “King Kong Theory” by Virginie Despentes. “can touch this” : an immersive installation and performance that accommodated a limited number of audience members per session, in a red atmosphere where light and scenography were guiding the trajectory.
