Parade of Horribles

Mish Weaver

Parade of Horribles is a roaming devised work, combining performance, spoken word and projection to celebrate differences with empathetic humour and amplify consciousness around the psychological effects of Climate Crisis. Going from City to Town, spending time with community groups in each area to better understand their lived experience, their fears and desires to translate into imagery for the street. Audiences will happen upon, share, and remember images designed to start conversations. Parade finds ways to create empathy between people and rejoice in the vibrancy that difference brings to our lives.

Transforming Energy, by berru

Collection Europe

The synergies and challenges that the encounter between the biological and technological worlds imposes us today have been the focus of this collective’s attention. Their works tend to combine living and non-living structures, whose interaction allows us to understand the complexity of these same structures and to speculate on their potential collaborations in creating sustainable systems. For the exhibition at Culturgest Porto – within the France-Portugal Season Croisée, and in close collaboration with the French partner, COAL, which will host the exhibition afterwards – the collective is preparing a work that reassesses and seeks alternatives to the use of batteries.

Multispecies Landscape, by Tery Žeželj

Artistic Research in Ljubljana

Multispecies Landscape is a two-year artistic research on alternative ways of practicing relationships with the environment and diverse bodies that are part of the ecosystems in which we operate and are being transformed. It understands the environment as the process that emerges from numerous relationships and tries to look for methods for overcoming binary oppositions such as nature and culture, dead and alive, etc. The research inspired by the concept of the holobiont as an object of thought that disables thinking through individual categories, but rather focuses on the body as a porous environment of various organisms that are enabling life.
