Underneath Which Rivers Flow - Globe Aroma & Decoratelier Jozef Wouters

This season, Decoratelier Jozef Wouters is collaborating with Open Kunstenhuis Globe Aroma to create Underneath Which Rivers Flow. A group of women and men – builders, poets, and dreamers – meet every week at Decoratelier in Molenbeek. In this space, they build stories together, a secret garden full of wormholes to unsuspected worlds.

• The socio-artistic workplace Globe Aroma enables people to learn about the richness of other people’s cultures and creates opportunities for refugees and newcomers with artistic abilities.
• Jozef Wouters (°1986) has been active as a stage designer and artist in the Belgian performing arts world since 2007. In 2010, he graduated from a.pass in Brussels, where he specialised in scenography. Since then he has worked with Meg Stuart, Thomas Bellinck, Benny Claessens, Michiel Vandevelde, a.o.

'One day, a large banner suddenly appeared on the facade of the Decoratelier, showing a virtual vision of what the neighbourhood might look like in the future. The studio and its surroundings had been replaced by a large park. That same day, I met a group of people from Globe Aroma and we decided to dig a hole towards this future park that, right now, is still an old factory. In the enormous void we taught each other to build out loud: a form of construction in which there is no difference between speaking, dreaming and building. Gradually an alternative park took shape, a park where memories and imagination intermingle, a secret garden filled with shadows and a jumble of grey zones. As yet I understand little of it, but it seems to be a place where people can decide for themselves whether or not to be visible or invisible, and this in the heart of the city.' – JOZEF WOUTERS
