Khôra

How do we reclaim our humanity?

In today's digital age, we are increasingly turning to a future where technology is leading. Technological advances are supposed to make life easier, but practice shows us that technology controls our lives.

In Khôra, Astrid Boons philosophizes about a posthuman world and the social dissolution we are going through. Posthuman because we are increasingly turning toward a future in which technology is leading. And dissolution because the space for the body in this future is getting smaller and smaller. What is the impact of this denial of our lived bodily experience? And what does it mean for our sense of being human? In Khôra, her most ambitious production to date, Astrid Boons attempts to answer these questions. Five performers embrace different possibilities of embodiment and search for ways to re-ground themselves in our humanity. 

Want to learn more? In this interview Astrid tells more about the themes of Khôra. 

  

On 27 October from 21:30-22:00, there will be an after-talk with Astrid Boons and moderator Nitchka Wefers Bettink. Before the after-talk will begin, the audience will be asked if there is a preference to have the talk in Dutch or English. We aim for the conversation to be accessible to as many people in the audience as possible.
