As part of our Learning Together programme, Buda is embarking on a new collaboration with nadine – a brussels-based trans-disciplinary organisation – to share three works in the making with the public over the course of a day. The programme is detailed below. Everyone is welcome!
Etat des Lieux are collective showings where artists and audiences are brought together. Artists are invited to shape a programme during which they share their ongoing research or try-outs. Nadine’s role here is guiding and supporting: sensing which artists are ready to present something publicly, finding the right combination of artists around a theme, providing content and production support, and looking for the ideal cultural partner.
Etat des Lieux lands in BUDA at the end of October 2023. The artists participating are Caroline Daish, Mathilde Maillard, Emma Lee Harder, Isabel Burr Raty and Lucia Palladino. They take the audience on an (imaginary) journey along water, earth, forest. A day that aims to generate energy with song, storytelling and speculative science fiction.
12:00-15:00 | Buratinas Captains Emma Lee Harder, Caroline Daish & Mathilde Maillard: She Shanties & Other Water Stories
Sound piece | NL, FR, EN
+ vegan lunch by Dots and Bullets (optional) in Budatower | €10 to be paid on the spot
During a summer journey along the canals and rivers of Wallonia and Flanders, Captains Caroline, Emma and Mathilde collected and recorded some navigating stories as some testimonies on the digitalisation of the canal locks. They also used the water environment as tools for singing improvisations to invent some She-Shanties (an English pun on the word ‘Sea Shanties’). Inside the She Shanties project, Emma Lee Harder, Caroline Daish and Mathilde Maillard share their common love for vocal improvisation, the mix and remix of what’s being said, sound and radiophonic situations, women empowerment circles and the slowness of going along the water.
In Kortrijk, you can embark on a touristic boat and enjoy a selection of She Shanties & Other stories piece and improvisations along the Leie river with the captains Emma and Mathilde.
Thanks to: oracle /Justine Maxelon, Anna de Sutter, Alain (Bryc), Klaus, Loes, An, Phyllis and nadine vzw, all the sluiswachters, fishes, plants and ducks we met and recorded along the Belgium waterways of life.
Isabel Burr Raty is developing the research of The (Power Plant) Village, a nomadic underground community that collectivises orgasms to awaken superpowers and experience trans-dimensional travels.
During this occasion at Buda, The Village will open up quantum files containing atomic and molecular tunneling trials of the Bubble-Ponics, a hallucinogenic neurotransmitters cultivation process, carried-out in the middle of the Belgian countryside apocalypse.

18:00-19:00 | Lucia Palladino: the forest__
Presentation of ongoing artistic research | EN
Lucia Palladino is currently working on the project the forest_ that investigates verbal language from an ontological point of view, or how language becomes a producer of knowledge. Through three autonomous parts, the forest__ produces a non-linear, poetic discourse that opens different spatio-temporal portals, each with a different effect in relation to the audience.
During Etat des Lieux she will share a participative writing and reading score that create an ephemeral immersion in a multitude of fictional worlds.
