We are thrilled to present you Spider, Spit and Broken Bells – the upcoming Haperende Mens Festival: December 8 and 9, 2017 (OCCII, Amsterdam) and January 12 and 13, 2018 (WORM+V2_ Rotterdam).
This edition will explore the idea of the sacred in the context of an overly regulated society. The present time in which political polarisation, alienation and thrill-seeking diverts us from inner experience and meaning. Where are those deep, intense moments that transcend our increasingly regulated daily lives?
Through a music and arts programme we present transgression, experiment and ritual as forms of sustainability; against the backdrop of today’s ever-increasing social disembodiment.
Not your usual cup of herbal tea maybe. Rather a mixture of spiders, spit and broken bells.
Spider, Spit and Broken Bells is made possible by Gemeente Rotterdam, Stimuleringsfonds Creatieve Industrie, Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds, Amsterdams Fonds voor de Kunsten (AFK) and in collaboration with WORM Rotterdam, V2_, OCCII Amsterdam, Pantropical and Europalia.
