The artist duo Suzan Boogaerdt and Bianca van der Schoot combines performance and (video) installations. They call their field of operations the ‘grey space’: the zone between the black box (theatre) and the white cube (museum).

This approach is evident in their New Body Project, which they will present in 2024 – a diptych about mourning lost bodies and embodying a new world.

The first part, called WOMBTOMBS, is presented at MU Hybrid Art House in Eindhoven in spring of 2024. It consists of a series of hiding places that are both memorial sites and incubators. These spaces can be visited by the public and will host performances at certain times.

The second part, SONGOFSONGS, takes the form of a multimedia performance which will tour across the Netherlands in the fall of 2024. Here, new forms of existence are presented which were developed in the WOMBTOMBS, merging human, technological and digital ‘bodies’.
