Happenings are an exploration at the VogelLab in Amsterdam Noord's Vogelbuurt. Two guests are invited to "see what happens" when they bring their expression into one space at this particular moment in time.
The audience are passer's by, peering into the windows or turning their heads to see: what is that?
Tania Zountsa (composer/performer) and Lisa van der Zande (visual artist/performer) arrived and we drank some tea together. We found ourselves speaking about the same area, street and building in Utrecht - by coincidence they live in the same place! We were witnesses to an experiment all about meeting and asking how we communicate without words.
we couldn't suppress the hug.
are they really neighbours?
are these words really my words, or the recorder?
tape and tapes and papers and music
and we were witness to the beginning of friendship.

hands surrounding ceramic,
talking about wild coincidences.
language made of folding and crumpling, keys,
stereo - pens - tape,
"today is a strange day".
