8-12 March 2022
Stone Network is a knot of gatherings initiated by Anna Bierler and Marit Mihklepp. They begin weaving the network with a week-long residency-ritual – from March 8-12 – to connect the voices and bodies of the geologic and the human, as well as focus on modes of writing and reading as spaces for intimacy and collectivity.
Each day an invited guest will be sharing their practice as an intensive learning and playing session:
–Tuesday, 8.3. with Juliette Lizotte
–Wednesday, 9.3. with Greta Facchinato
–Thursday, 10.3. with Cocky Eek
–Friday, 11.3. with Undead Matter
–Saturday, 12.3. with Comfort Ball
From March 8–12 between 7pm–8pm the public is invited to join for interactive radio-experiments on Good Times Bad Times. Streaming live from CLOUD Danslab in The Hague, we’ll explore reading and writing as a collective practice while tending to stones and the stories they carry.
To participate, please enter the chatroom of Good Times Bad Times
Every summer I gather a few stones from
the beach and keep them in a glass bowl.
Now and again I cover them with water,
and they drink. There’s no question about
this; I put tinfoil over the bowl, tightly,
yet the water disappears. This doesn’t
mean we ever have a conversation, or that
they have the kind of feelings we do, yet
it might mean something. Whatever the
stones are, they don’t lie in the water
and do nothing.
Some of my friends refuse to believe it
happens, even though they’ve seen it. But
a few others—I’ve seen them walking down
the beach holding a few stones, and they
look at them rather more closely now.
Once in a while, I swear, I’ve even heard
one or two of them saying “Hello.”
Which, I think, does no harm to anyone or
anything, does it?
