(DON'T) COME CLOSER
Performance & Discourse
Fears of contact and insecurities in confrontation with the unknown form barriers. In encounters between people with and without disabilities, between different cultures and ways of life, in everyday life. And in the confrontation with uncomfortable topics such as death and dying. We want to confront these individual and socially shaped insecurities, address them freely and dissolve them.
Fears play a significant role in the development of racism. Differences, diversities, the unknown and the foreign can trigger feelings of fear. These fears usually remain abstract, but lead concretely to exclusion and demarcation. What is the root of discrimination and how can we counter it?
(DON'T) COME CLOSER explores fears of contact with performances and conversations.
