Ancestral Conviviality: How I fell in love with queer critters
he performance lecture takes its point of departure in an artistic-philosophic collaboration between Nina Lykke and Risk Hazekamp.
Nina Lykke and Risk Hazekamp* found each other in their love of micro-organisms, especially Diatoms (a micro-algae with a unique coloured shell) and Cyanobacteria (also called green-blue algae).

A warm digital exchange followed, both in words and images, in which the voices of Nina and Risk eventually merged into one shared ‘I’, contemplating co becomings with the 'you' of Diatoms and Cyanobacteria. Speculative, passionate conversations shaped up between these interlocutors, investigating the precarious conditions of in-between ness, life and death on the planet, and figuring out more-than-human pathways towards joyful, ethical co-existence with the planet body beyond anthropocene extractivism and binary separations of human and non-human bodies. The performance lecture will invite audiences to engage in these conversations.

Register before March 20!
