SOVEREIGNTY OF THE BODY / RADICAL TENDERNESS
It seems to us a fundamental basic right to have control over our own bodies. And yet, historically, this idea is quite new. Even after centuries of liberation struggles by discriminated people, this freedom is still a privilege of the few, not for all, and not everywhere.
The current crisis has brought new challenges and have shown us how quickly the right to (bodily) self-determination can be taken away. Nevertheless, there is hope, a more sustainable, ecological and collective counter-vision of a patriarchal capitalist and discriminatory society exists, gains influence and demands to manifest.
We at xplore would like to create a free space again where we can play and experiment with our bodies and where adventure in all forms of physical liveliness, creativity and freedom can be experienced. Where contact, touch and communication are once again given the space they so deserve.
A place that celebrates a radical tenderness.
It is more necessary than ever to question ourselves and explore what it means to be alive and what our bodies are for. We believe we are here to love, to care, to learn and share, to grow and enjoy.
Welcome to our playground!
