Cock, Cock.. Who’s There? is an unsettling, touching and private documentary-performance of a young woman’s research into intimacy and violence. Through online platforms like Chatroulette and Tinder, and through close encounters Samira Elagoz takes the audience on her journey of regaining power, reinventing autonomous expression of sexuality and attempts to relate to men.

Cock, Cock.. Who’s There? won the André Veltkamp grant for being the most promising graduation work in 2016, and the Prix Jardin d’Europe at Impulstanz in 2017. It was also nominated for the BNG Bank Nieuwe Theatermakersprijs, a competition for the most promising young theater makers in Holland.

Samira Elagoz is a Finnish born artist residing in the Netherlands. She has a BA in choreography from the School for New Dance Development in Amsterdam. In her work “Samira Elagoz weaves together performance and video, fiction and documentary, art and life, gravity and levity in an impressive and very surprising way” (Robert Kaltenhäuser, Blooom Awards). Besides Elagoz (director), the ensemble includes a Dutch technician, a Japanese actor who lives in the Netherlands, and one still unknown Finnish actor.

Tampere Theatre Festival is Finland’s leading theatre event, celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2018.

The Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux supports the performance as part of the TelepART internationalisation programme.

RE/defining Finnish Contemporary Art & Design

Our project focusing on Finnish art and design stretches across the entire year and aims to highlight Finnish designers in central Europe. Together with Brussels based Spazio Nobile gallery we will be participating in several prominent design fairs as well as organise a number of exhibitions, all the while striving to redefine the wide range of skills and expertise in design and art that can be found in Finland. The overall project is curated by the founder of the Spazio Nobile gallery, Lise Coirier, and the director of the Finnish Cultural Institute for the Benelux, Kati Laakso. The project also extends to the spaces of our colleagues at the Finnish Institute in Paris in the spring and summer of 2019.

International Women’s Day – Breakfast Discussion

Do girls and boys have equal opportunities in education and self-expression? Join the Nordic diplomatic representations and cultural institutes in Brussels for a breakfast debate on International Women's Day. In the Nordic countries, researchers and educators have been studying the subject for decades, but we still have a lot to learn. With the panel discussion, we wish to take a look at what role gender plays in education and learning in our systems today.

MYTHS AND DEMONS – closing debate

Almost 30 years after the end of the Cold War and 15 years after the accession of the states of Central and Eastern Europe to the EU, the European continent remains trapped in an understanding going back more than a century of the nation state as a territorially bounded community, and struggles to implement transnational or even de-territorialized forms of citizenship. What is the future of the European continent 100 years from now? BOZAR and Archa Theatre (Prague) invite you to Myths and Demons, the closing participative debate of the year-long project 1918 European Dreams of Modernity.

For a New European Social Contract

House of European History, Brussels, Belgium
The new EUNIC Brussels conference cycle questioning the future of Europe. The ambition of the project is to rethink the social contract, so that it no longer relies on the relationship between citizens and the state but goes beyond this by taking into account the different dimensions of life today and the crucial issues citizens are facing.
