within the project "Le chant des possibles", Charleroi, BE
I asked the inhabitants of a big housing complex in Charleroi to have their heartbeat recorded and to collectively play the recording out of their windows for 20 minutes.
While I do not speak French, which sometimes made my project difficult, I had some interesting experiences with the Carolos. I was allowed to touch many different chests and I even ended up sitting in an empty bathtub with a nice old lady who I had never met before. I think Charleroi is an ideal location for courageous enterprises, as the city is both used to visionary projects and experiences of failure. Remaining in this spirit, the performance will take place without a try out, thus also constituting its own rehearsal.
