Enough dicking around. Let’s talk about sex. Sex deserves a more in-depth conversation than it often receives nowadays. When we speak of ‘the act’ we often like to perpatuate the myth that sex is always wild, horny, epic or thrilling. And yes, we proudly share that we are into the latest trends (Poly! Pegging! Tantra-islands!), but little on what role sex plays in our lives or whether that suits us. This could be better. From 02 to 30 March, we pull out all the stops with an exhibition around the re-definition of sexual energy, sensual concerts, a repair diner on the lesser sides of sex, sexual education in the form of a performance, a literary evening on sex & the power of imagination and steamy nightlifes. Join the conversation!

Description
Do you want to slow down? Connect with your own body and others' in a low-key and accessible way? In our lives we are in a daily rush. Our nervous system is over stimulated and tired. Because of our superficial environment we are unable to connect with our sensual selves. We are unable to explore true conscious intimacy with our environment and other people.

With a broad line-up ranging from Klahrk via Golce to Dybbuk and Stella K, bass-driven nighttime encounters are promoted in a soft setting. By working on visuals and decoration, MONTAGE will try to work on the following questions:  How can we make a party that is both artistically challenging and beautifully warm at the same time? How can we make you feel safe and welcome to explore yourself and each other? How can we allow you to be multiple? Expect the unexpected, but be yourselves. To facilitate our lovely encounters, the scenery will be set by @club.derive

Description
Slow music and brunch concept in Brussels meets family owned arts and music collective. Matinée is a young collective from Brussels that found the pause button during covid and is happy to share it with us. For the occasion of PILAR ASAP The Sexual Healing/Feeling Edition, they join forces with the Ghent/Brussels family of Dauwtrip. Together they have put a pleasantly varied line-up, within which there is room to dream away in the large hall with inspiring live acts or to hang out in the bar with carefully chosen records by DJs. Brunch is served here, so you can literally roll out of bed and come. Without a worry, as fit on a Sunday. Free entrance with voluntary contribution. No reservations needed for the brunch. Bring a book, crosswords, blanket, pillow, toy, your best friend, your grandfather, … who/whatever you feel like having with you on a Sunday.
