The Warp Fallback: Eternal Returns VI: Here Again, Ten Years After: Fall Back to the Womb
December 12, 2022, Monday, 8 pm
at the Kunstkapel, Prinses Irenetraat 19
The Fall Back: Eternal Returns program comes to an end of this date which represents ten years since the very first event connected with the CLOUD endeavour happened at the Kunstkapel (12-12-12). One of the first impressions of the space with its built-in architectural “soft”cloth walls (courtesy of former tenants Atelier 21) was that of a womb. We now imagine the ultimate Fall Back: Eternal Return imaginable would be that of the return to the womb which immediately called these reflections of motherhood both dark and light into a distinct order.
▷ Iza Pacewicz Wysocka performs 𝙃𝙖𝙡𝙛 𝙤𝙛 𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙄 𝙎𝙖𝙮 𝙄𝙨 𝙈𝙚𝙖𝙣𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙇𝙚𝙨𝙨
Iza Pacewicz Wysocka, a new mother herself, performs a reflection on lost mothers and deep connections with the help of a phonograph and a copy of the white album.
▷▷ Samm Lewis performs 𝙏𝙝𝙚 3 𝙁𝙖𝙩𝙚𝙨, 𝙀𝙥𝙞𝙨𝙤𝙙𝙚 3
Samm Lewis offers the sequel to her piece on the previous day performed on the knitting machine, reflecting on memories of her mother.
▷▷▷ Iza Pacewicz Wysocka and Estee Makampo performs 𝙇𝙚𝙫𝙖𝙣𝙣𝙖 𝙎𝙥𝙞𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙪𝙖𝙡
Levanna is the roman goddess of child care and specifically as a force which picks up and lifts the child into the air… an action which combines attraction with terror, ultimate care with huge risk. With this piece the duet of dance and music, body and violin, attempt to create a gospel spiritual on this motif combining the efforts of a new first time mother and an active healer to create a unique and authentic dialogue in the realm of the spirit.
▷▷▷▷ Barbara Philip performs 𝙈𝙪𝙩𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙨𝙚𝙚𝙡𝙚𝙣𝙖𝙡𝙡𝙚𝙞𝙣: 𝘼𝙡𝙡 𝘼𝙡𝙤𝙣𝙚 𝙞𝙣 𝙩𝙝𝙚 𝙒𝙤𝙧𝙡𝙙
An elderly woman talks to her daughter on the phone. However, one never hears the daughter answering, but only follows the mother’s minute-long monologue. The mother is represented by a ventriloquist doll who talks the whole time and reveals her omnipresence as a dominant, desperate and bitter character. The artist says “Capturing my feeling of being mutterseelenallein ( all alone in the world) in relationship to my mother figure allowed me to liberate the missing voice.”

(Performed by Simone Goslinga, Stefania Petroula, Iza Pacewicz Wysocka, and Elizaveta Kozyakova)
The Shadow Seminary School was formed in 2018 to ruminate on the actual space of the Kunstkapel, its history and its direct link to the catholic church particularly as a seminary rehearsal space designed by an architect who is singularly known as a Catholic futurist. The project grew out of Thomas de Quincey’s Three Mothers of Sorrow which we conceive as the dark absence in the edifice of the Church. This trio conjoins original members of the group with a phantasmal reunion of these three dark mothers which will serve as a prelude to the fifth part of the work which reflects on the future of the Kunstkapel one thousand years from now as a different sort of spiritual edifice.
