Against Interpretation

How can we create meaning together? You are invited to take part in a reading group. A short story sets the tone for a conversation. Intervening in our perceptions, we challenge our way of interpreting the story and each other.

Against Interpretation has been performed in Ghent, Ostend and Bruges.

Everything Depends on How a Thing is Thought is a series of conversational performances and dialogues. Taking four different subjects, they explore how the individual and the community are related and how the community influences the individual and vice versa. The performances are inspired and make use of fiction, philosophical and anthropological texts, theatrical means and sculptures. They are a co-construction with other artists and/or philosophers, psychiatrist, psychologists and other people involved in the topics.
