Brandstof: Sintonia (Attunement)
12 Mar 2022 Starts at: 3 p.m. Location: Garage Rotterdam

Through body gestures, Yasmim Salim Flores’ performance deepens into the politics of sisterhood and feminine friendships as an agent for social empathy. In a state of diaspora, sprouts out a need for proximity and for a safe space to share experiences of sensitivity, strength, maternity, happiness, sadness, grief, affection, touch, elasticity, and beauty. But how can closeness be realized between strangers? Can we take motherhood as a shared ground towards social exchange?

For this performance during an afternoon edition of Brandstof, artist Yasmim Salim Flores will collaborate with (amongst others) cellist, singer and composer Chieko Donker Duyvis.
