In 2017 Bára Sigfúsdóttir creates her new performance called being in which she collaborates with two Iranian artists, Masoumeh Jalalieh and SeyedAlireza Mirmohammadi.

In this performance the body serves as a poetic instrument and common ground to put in dialogue the West-European with the Iranian culture and society.

After residencies in Brussels and Neerpelt (without Alireza because of visa issues), Potstdam, Groningen, Tehran and Istanbul we are finalizing the creation in Ghent from Monday on.

If you’re curious to learn a bit more about the journey of this creation, check out the blog with contributions of the whole cast and crew here.

The premiere of being will take place at CAMPO (Ghent, BE) on 26th and 27th of October 2017. being is Bára’s first creation within her trajectory of performing arts resident at Kunstencentrum Vooruit in Ghent.

Further performance dates of being can be found in the calendar.
