How can we evoke empathy? Where do we find each other? And can we find a shared language that connects us
In a world defined by screens, swipes, and fleeting connections, the search for genuine human connection has become more vital than ever. Enter ISLANDS of EMPATHY (in a sea of chaos), a transcendent cross-cultural collaboration between Club Guy & Roni, Slagwerk Den Haag and Senegalese musician Pape Seck
We understand the yearning for deeper connections, the pursuit of empathy in a world filled with digital distractions, and the desire to bridge cultural divides. ISLANDS of EMPATHY is not just a performance; it’s a mirror reflecting the experiences, challenges, and aspirations of your daily life. Through mesmerizing choreography, diverse traditions, and a compelling narrative, this show is a profound exploration of the universal themes that define our generation.
Join us on this unforgettable journey, where the stage becomes a reflection of your own life, your quest for empathy, and your place in this vibrant, interconnected world.
ISLANDS of EMPATHY is a collaboration with Senegalese griots; storytellers who keep traditions and history alive with dance, music and poetry. In the summer of 2023, we headed to Senegal; to talk with spiritual leaders, dancers and artists about empathy and community. These intercultural conversations formed the blueprint for this performance.
