Frsh (recherche d'objet dans une poche) is a critical study of the production and performance methods of discourse: from speech to song, from gesture to dance, from text to score. Far beyond any distinction between research and performance, Beursschouwburg's associated artists soto labor and nadjim bigou-fathi, focus their gaze on the power dynamics that determine how histories are produced and handed down. In doing so, they ask the audience to help think – with their ears and/or mouths – about how we can reshuffle the cards. 

"Groping, bodies, saliva and conversations from ♪ Là à là. La à là la à ici. D’ici, ici à là, si, si si, la ♪ are Frsh methods to question the way discourse is manufactured and the relationship of subordination between scores, performers, authors and audiences."

in French

nadjim bigou-fathi (1990, FR) is a designer, visual artist and performer. He is concerned with the creation of limits – from walls to words – and the normative, territorial or authoritarian dynamics behind them. Through curatorial, sculptural or performative projects, he investigates waiting and expecting situations, questioning the power relations between participants.

soto labor (1993, FR) is a poet, visual artist and performer. Strongly influenced by hip-hop as a means of empowerment, they explore different forms of telling and performing, exploring the conditions that make this (im)possible for some. Their short stories, fables, poems and rap lyrics thereby become tools for political critique.
