Directed by Linh Tuong Do with Janina Capelle
HEARTDAY explores intimate experience and asks us to re-think and re-imagine the notion of solidarity. Linh Tuong Do asks us to consider what solidarity represents in our present-day context? How does it relate to current concepts of ‘power’, ‘alliance’, and ‘difference’? The heart as the organ of cardiac metabolism functions to synthesize growth, repair and regeneration. These three processes take place simultaneously and are central to the group situations and exercises set up by Linh Tuong Do. Activities in the form of speaking, writing, listening, and movement – whatever is most comfortable for participants – highlight modes of difference that may sometimes lead to conflicts, misunderstandings and divisions. Linh Tuong Do will introduce keywords, images, and questions in order to develop a subjective and open conversation about the notion of friendship.
