Extra Academy 
by Laure Prouvost

In the context of the concert ‘BIOSPHERE’ on Wednesday 27 October, the lecture series ‘Extra Academy’ — curated by Nico Dockx, Helen Mauli Dowling and Teun Verbruggen and hosted at cultural center Het Bos — invited renowned French multidisciplinary artist Laure Prouvost to screen her film 'Deep See Blue Surrounding You / Vois Ce Bleu Profond Te Fondre' (the immersive installation that she developed to represent France at the 68th Venice Biennial in 2019) and to hereby create a performative sequence to the ‘BIOSPHERE’ concert and reflect upon the ecological themes of today and tomorrow.

An audio-visual, performative work will be created in close collaboration with Francisco Rojas Huertas, Emma Johnson, Lucia Mrakovcic, Maria Sawizki, Alex Smith, and Jenna Vergeynst -all students and alumni of both the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp and the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp - and will be performed live on Thursday October 28th at 7pm in Het Bos, including some food made by Charlotte Koopman.
