MU In Real Live Thursdays #6: STONEORGY x DEEPSOIL

Story-telling past the Hero's Journey

Enter the virtual grove of Jasper Griepink, who will transform MU into a digital forest for a one-night story telling experience of the tale D E E P S O I L, supported and interspersed by his recent music project S T O N E O R G Y, for which he has been collaborating with musician Giek_1.

S T O N E O R G Y x D E E P S O I L van Jasper Griepink
Door open: 19.30
Start performance: 20.00
Evening closes: between 22.00 and 22.30
Entrance fee: 5 euro / students 2,50 euro

The project S T O N E O R G Y (2019 - 2020) is based on a research into paganism, Druidry and the power of oral story telling. In the performance, a world will be created which interlaces the atmosphere of a music-gig with the telling of a story of a seemingly ancient world. Griepink will perform not only as a singer and orator, but also as the facilitator of a participatory sensorial experience in which we will download a story-world from our collective unconscious.

D E E P S O I L (2020) speaks of a subterranean layer of earth, mineral and nutrients that is said to have a consciousness of its own. The story has not been finished on paper though, and will come alive in the live performance instead. As a hybrid between a nature priest and a sassy musician, Griepink will guide us on a collective world building journey in which our feeling, imagination, breath and attentive ears will help generate the reality; expect dancing, jumping, sounds and singing – and of course, listening to the cascading narrative of the world in the middle of being created.

Additionally, the performance will attempt to break the typical ‘Hero’s Journey’ that so often takes central stage within narratives: a theme of trials, violence and struggle in which one hero often prevails. Griepink wonders who raised this hero? Who took care of his food, clothing? Could the matrix of life surrounding him be brought to the fore, could that matrix perhaps become the entire narrative? A journey that leads us to the now. How would that influence the way we believe this world to be?
