SPA for SPIRITS // Landing Site

Ellen Vanderstraeten

During the residency at BUDA, Ellen will continue to explore the SPA for SPIRITS project. A spa that experiments with different ways of doing things and breaks with an often monotonous, normative world that tells us to behave in a certain way. She invites the expertise of actress Leonie Buysse, dramatist Mats Vandroogenbroeck, haptonomist Henny Baeken and architect Francesco Apostoli. A project for more space, small gestures, sensibility and intimacy after times of social distancing and confinement.
