With Sara Manente and the artists of White Garden


Choreographer and researcher Sara Manente focuses on the intersection between living art and living cultures. This White Garden is inspired by fermentation techniques and the world of fungus. Especially mycelium, an underground network of fungal threads that connects all the trees and plants in a forest. For Manente, this is a symbol for the network of relationships we engage in as humans.

The various performances that are part of White Garden also connect the present (Tamar Levit & Yaën S. Levi), past (Goda Palekaité & Milda Januševičiūtė), and a yet unknown future (Norberto Llopis Segarra). 

Follow the threads to Budatoren and be transported on an unexpected journey. Sara Manente and the artists will be happy to tell you more about this concept during the festive opening.

Sara Manente studied dance and semiotics before moving to Brussels, where she works as an artist and researcher. Drawing on the imagery and matter of living cultures and mycelium brought into relation with live arts, her projects reflect on the possibility of cross-pollination between pedagogy, research, performance and publication. The result can take different forms: from an installation or performance to a magazine.
