Noa & Snow, a gentle experiment between the everyday and the event

At the crossroad between curating, writing and choreography, Noa & Snow becomes an organisation of working, studying together, an event that skirts the already established modes of artistic production and organises its own poetic encounters.

Noa & Snow wants to experiment

  • Using poetry as a common tool to welcome otherness and the unexpected into our domestic lives, our daily work activities
  • Placing art in everyday life in order to establish new relationships with the event and the exceptional (the Performances will be presented at the Volkskundemuseum, during working hours and will be for free)
  • Opening a space where art meets other ordinary work activities, in a non-hierarchical way (a co-working public art studio)
  • Producing a kind of non-attentive attention, a non-oppressive dramaturgy that allows rather than guides (art rendered “ambient” by its contextualisation, not its nature)

Noa & Snow proposes to use poetry as a vehicle to explore otherness, coexistence, hospitality, care and collectivity.

The core research team is composed of Alix Eynaudi, Paula Caspão, Lydia McGlinchey and Quim Pujol.

Conceived as a choreographic social experiment, Noa & Snow wants to gently allow rather than guide, to implicate rather than explicate. The fact that the project runs over 2 years, will allow the fellowship formed by the team and their guests to exerce various scenarios of political and social engagement via their commitment to an artistic practice.
