Performance: Spa for Spirits
just a little bit longer
sit down, lie down,
whisper me singing,
mumble and stumble
upon me you
feel with your
finger toes cheeks or chest
how soft hard this can be
nothing is not
a border the boundary the little fence
Ongoing performance and installation by Lili.
Spa for Spirits is an artistic and experimental wellness center operated by otherworldly creatures and led by Leonie Buysse and Ellen (Lili) Vanderstraeten. Visitors land in landscapes where they recharge their bodies to rituals that arise in the interaction between performer and visitor. These landscapes and rituals make room for the development of new sensory experiences.
For Murf/Murw Festival 2022 Lili will be hosting a Spa for Spirits. Lili is a performer, creator and curator. She is fascinated by co-creative ways of making art and the multiformity of textiles. Her work departs from daily routines of care such as walking, sleeping, cooking, reading … which she experimentally loosens from their monotonous patterns to create an archive of new rituals and curious objects.
