The Power (of) The Fragile


After the consultative committee last Tuesday, October 26, tighter COVID measures have been reintroduced.
Therefore, you are obliged to wear a face mask during the performance - even in all indoor areas of STUK (venues, reception, toilets, ...).
In STUKcafé, face masks are not compulsory, but of course you can (the rules for bars and restaurants only change next Monday, November 1).

For all performances from November 1 onwards, we are still finetuning the practical measures - you'll find all info on this page or via the link below.

The Power (of) The Fragile is a meeting of two worlds, two bodies, two minds. Latifa always dreamt of being a dancer, Mohamed made it his profession. The borders of their bodies blur, making it hard to decipher where one ends and the other starts. Their lives and dreams start to merge, and only time claims its space between mother and son.

The Power (of) The Fragile is a collection of images, reflections on what the relation between mother and son can look like, on what it means to be home and to go away. It is a performance about movement, of bodies and people, about weight and what it means to carry weight, about being together and being apart. It is a tender portrait of a close relationship, and a pamphlet for our right to go wherever we want to go.

Presentation co-financed by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union in the frame of DANCE ON, PASS ON, DREAM ON
