ABOUT THIS SITE >>> This site is a blog as well as an archive. It gives visibility to the continues working of radical_hope, its current move to radical_house, the research project Distraction As Discipline (2016 - 2019) and the process of OTÇOE - works for passers-by, a working trajectory (2013 and 2014).
radical_house is a long term project and has a threefold nature: it presents a physical place, a framework and a logic. When in 2013 teaching and mentoring became an extension of Langsdorf's artistic practices now radical_house stems from her pedagogical experience where 'being in dialogue' with others is her main principle.
Distraction As Discipline is
an investigation into enactivist principles in art and education
(research trajectory at KASK School
of Arts Ghent 2016-19). It considers the potential of performance art and
pedagogy in general, in resisting the current and massive
desubjectivation, by critically reclaiming both, attention for the moment and participation in a process.
OTÇOE - works for passers-by was the development of radical_hope's artistic practice in the city and questioned how and by whom this practice (and its bodily, social and economical aspects) is perceived. The title refers to the public of a city and to how we encounter and register most things on our way through the city: Out of The Corner of Our Eyes. OTÇOE.

11th hour is a piece created and performed by Davis Freeman and his invited guests. Its centre revolves around the question "What do you pass on"? The interest is in the idea of legacy and questions what transfer is made with each meeting that occurs between two people. 11th hour can be seen as the movement we embrace evolving as a species and community with the lines of flight of our conscious and subconscious. With every interaction through out the day we send out force that others respond to. We search for missing links and give or receive physical and emotional information where either we teach or become taught. This piece confronts the audience and performers with questions of transformation by drawing attention to what a person thinks they present and what people actually see. >>> Random Scream
