Daidalos

'Daidalos' is an encounter between Wolf Govaerts and Belinda van der Stoep. While both literally and metaphorically building a stage for each other, they immerse themselves into some archetypes of Greek mythology and the opera 'Ariadne auf Naxos' from Richard Strauss. Rather than literally bringing them to the stage - even though that briefly happens - they want to reflect on both dwelling as on moving forward.

'There are no more deserts. There are no more islands. Yet there is a need for them. In order to understand the world, one has to turn away from it on occasion; in order to serve men better, one has to hold them at a distance for a time. But where can one find the solitude necessary to vigor, the deep breath in which the mind collects itself and courage gauges its strength?'

Albert Camus, 'The Minotaur or, the stop in Oran'
