“Since infinite space is empty on all sides, and innumerable seeds float in a thousand ways through all that emptiness, propelled by their eternal movement, it is in no way to be assumed that only this one world and sky are made, and beyond that all those particles of matter do but nothing.” (Lucretius, Teaching Poem on Nature, 1st E BCE)
Moddertong is a kaleidoscopic narrative that evokes the everyday life of a community in an unspecified time and place. Everything is magically connected: the sun, plants and animals, people and man-made things.
In Moddertong, a narrator sits with the audience in a circle. Gradually, a tragicomedy unfolds in which countless creatures support and thwart each other.
Sébastien Hendrickx worked for several years on this performance, which relates to the concepts of ‘mother’, ‘language’ and ‘earth’. Under the influence of continuous research and constantly changing circumstances, Moddertong takes on ever-changing forms.
