Help rivers make themselves understood
Both the Brazilian actress, theatre maker and researcher Gabriela Carneiro da Cunha and artist collective The All Rivers and Species Act do research into rivers. During this workshop, the audience is invited to explore and amplify the ‘voice’ of water with artistic methods.
Can we develop new, collective ways of listening to, or sensing rivers? Are there legal personhood rights to be given to non-human life? This workshop explores, through various artistic methods, the possibilities for bringing non-human voices to life.
The All Rivers and Species Act is a collaboration between artists Jemma Woolmore, Cristina Napoleone, Ibelisse Guardia Ferragutti, Nayeli Vega, Jenny Handley and Lily Mccraith. A special collaboration within the workshop was developed for Holland Festival with Gabriela Carneiro da Cunha, whose Altamira 2042, about the Brazilian Rio Xingu, is featured at the festival. The workshop is presented in collaboration with FIBER festival.
It offers participants the opportunity to contribute to The All Rivers and Species Act by creating, sometimes speculatively, new laws, rights and water spirits for rivers. Bring your smartphone, camera or recording device and go on a journey through legal frameworks, artificial intelligence and indigenous philosophies to bring non-human voices to life.
