! Call to Participate !

Since January Wendy has been working in commission of the Middelheim Museum on a new performance work in which the virtues of medicinal plants growing in the park – and more specifically indigenous contraceptive plants – are central. On June 24 this work, which is a procession and an ambulatory library, will wind its way through the park – and it needs you to join in!

With this mail we are making a call to friends, acquaintances and anyone interested, to become active participants in the procession. We need fifty men and women. What will the involvement entail? For the most part we need people to carry an embroidered banner, a processional lantern or, in teams, an assembly of plants. We also need women to form a company of Midwives, a set of Scolds and a half-dozen Journeywomen.

An information moment and a rehearsal will be necessary and more information about these can be found in the registration form. The procession will take up to an hour and a half and will include halts along the way. We will look out for your comfort on the day of the procession and at the rehearsals and information moments.

To make organization easier we ask you to go to the registration form here. If you think your friends or acquaintances might be curious and interested to participate please do spread this mail!

More information on the project can be found here
