I Build My Language With Rocks, 2021-2022
I Build My Language With Rocks is a choreographic project about the movements of the Northern Quarter in Brussels; a critical reading of the top-down movements (large-scale urban plans), and a focus on the local movements in the neighborhood. The notion of the swamp - one of the first forms of life buried under the asphalt in order for the city to be written - functions as a dramaturgical guidance throughout the project.
Within the context of this project, Paula and Wouter opened a space called “M33” located on the ground floor of the Harmonie building in the Northern Quarter. M33 is a place devoted to the local movements of the neighborhood.
