Details

“I am interested in the sense of responsibility, which I put in the hands of children: their firm belief in their visions and ideas of the future. I believe in a utopia-in-the-making as a social objective, even if it remains intangible and incomprehensible.” – Francesca Grilli

How often do you completely surrender to a child?

Sparks creates a space where the usual power relationships between the child and the adult are inverted. The children become oracles; bearers of mystical knowledge; wielders of magical powers.

As you enter the space, you encounter a community of oracles – a group of local children who have studied palmistry and the art of divination. Their faces are hidden behind masks but you can hear their voices. How does it feel to have a child tell you your destiny?

This event is presented as part of our Flanders Focus.

This is a limited capacity event and therefore is not part of the ticket discount scheme.

This event is for audiences 18+ only.
