For their new the­a­tre pro­ject, Silke Huysmans and Hannes Dereere focus on the topic of deep sea mining : a pos­si­ble futu­re indu­stry which hopes to extract metals and mine­rals from the ocean, and in which Belgium posi­ti­ons itself as a glo­bal lea­der. While their two pre­vious pie­ces Mining Stories (2016) and Pleasant Island (2019) focu­sed on the impact of land-mining through the lens of some­thing that hap­pe­ned in the past, this research looks towards the futu­re. It zooms in on a form of mining that has yet to take place.
