Mor Shani and I invite couples of all ages, for a workshop on Sunday February 2nd. You are asked to sign up together with someone with whom you have a close relationship; your child, a friend, a parent, a love; anyone you share something special with. Of course, you are also welcome to join in the case this person is not available.

During the workshop we offer the participating couples a moment of meeting each other in a different way, experiencing movement and creating together; a creative and curious quality time and a great chance for you as a couple, to make your own human document using movement and film.

Participation in the workshop is free. Accessible for both professionals as non-professionals

Note: By signing up, you give permission for the use of the videofootage shot during the workshop.

Limited amount of places.

“De dans en de film in Love-ism zijn dichtbij en intiem zonder voyeuristisch te worden; Shani en Sixta zetten een pure en eerlijke blik op de liefde neer.” – Patricia van der Linden

The Rotterdam-based artists Jeanne van Heeswijk and Paul Sixta interviewed 25 participants from households in Goulburn and the Sydney suburb of Liverpool. They questioned these volunteers on how they have tried to reduce their waste.

The interview approach unearthed disparate responses and reasons for waste, from the practical and personal to the metaphorical. They revealed an increasing awareness of waste (or wastefulness) and individual frustrations at the enormity of this problem and its impact on their daily lives.

The artists then scripted and filmed a series of narratives based on these personal stories. The Talking Trash exhibition presents these 25 narratives in the form of three minute video fictions, alongside an installation of photographic stills and personal objects gleaned from the project’s participants.
