Performance 'Fasnacht' Sachi Miyachi

04/12/2014
19:00

In het Oog

Sachi Miyachi, the winner of the Theodora Niemeijer Prize 2014 has created a wooden construction that transformed Het Oog (The Eye) into an active space where she will hold several performances. These performances are inspired by spring festivals from around the world which drive negative spirits away.

The first performance starts on Thursday 4 December and is inspired by the night of Carnival ‘Fasnacht’ in Basel and ‘Morgenstraich’. This festival announces the time of fasting since the 14th Century. Miyachi wants to demonstrate how people then used ‘ritualistic stupidities’ to break the normality of every day life.

Programme:
18:30-19:00: Welcome drinks
19:00: Performance
19:30: Talk with Sachi Miyachi
