Symposium: When you see me again, it won’t be me | Act 1 💭

[bodies are activated] The Grey Space is proud to introduce itself for the first time after a large-scale renovation with the first act of its ‘symposium of doubt’, in which the aim is to not only share, but to also facilitate (social) revelation by stimulating the most powerful characteristic of mankind: imagination.

You are cordially invited to this first act which explores movements as an extensive area of human experience. Philosopher Charles S. Peirce said that doubt instigates a desire to know or learn something. When the doubt is stronger than that what you believe is true, curiosity is triggered. You start to consciously use the desire to know more to redefine that what you thought was true. To end with an adjusted perception. It might change the way we look at ourselves; When you see me again, it won’t be me.

The performative event will embrace artistic installations, a conversation, a food experience and a music program. Participants:
• Lyndsey Housden (artist | tutor Interactive/Media/Design and researcher at the Design Lectorate, KABK | artist-in-residence at The Grey Space)
• David Abbink (Professor in Haptic Human-Robot Interaction at the Department of Cognitive Robotics and head of the Delft Haptics Lab, Delft University of Technology)
• Ria Higler (movement researcher, teacher and mentor at School for New Dance Development, AHK)
• Marijn de Langen (performing arts theorist and historian within diverse Dutch art educational institutions)

The project is supported by The Creative Industries Fund NL and the City of The Hague.
