DAGEN ZONDER DATA / DAYS WITHOUT DATES
In this new performance, Jessa Wildemeersch is looking for the connections between testimonies of nurses and soldiers serving in WWI and stories about army-conflicts in more recent times like WWII, Vietnam, Irak, Afghanistan, South-Africa, Ukraine. The traumas inflicted now don’t seem to differ so much from those left by WWI. Days Without Dates is about the common traumatic experiences, the healing and the re-integration process throughout the last century.
Days without dates is intertwining WWI and present-day testimonies into a mixed media performance in collaboration with an actress, a filmmaker and the Belgian multiple award-winning theatre company Het Nieuwstedelijk (coaching and dramaturgy).
