[Event] Collectif Faire-Part

@ DANSAND! 2023

BREAKFASTCLUB is a  meeting with an artistic proposal and people to share it with at an unusual time. In this extraordinary energy other ways of sharing, looking and experiencing become possible.

Gouvernement’s concept combines artists’ presentation moments with a moderated public conversation on the thematics evoked by the works on show. In the context of DANSAND!, the first edition of BREAKFASTCLUB will be kicked off in collaboration with Belgian and Congolese filmmakers Collectif Faire-Part. The starting point is their project SOKL: a replica of the pedestal of the statue of colonial ruler Leopold II in Brussels supporting decolonial actions during DANSAND!.

From that project, BREAKFASTCLUB invites two makers. First, dancer and curator Simomo Bouj will do an intervention at the SOKL. Then we will go inside for multidisciplinary artist Brahim Tall’s short film ‘Tukuleur’.

Both interventions, like the framing of the SOKL project, work around the notion of representation, (de)coloniality and cultural gazes. Under the expert guidance of Laura Nsengiyumva, we will talk through these themes in an open conversation with the artists and the audience. That conversation will of course include breakfast, because without coffee and croissants there will be no BREAKFASTCLUB.
