"Deceleration (that is, moving at a slower pace) is an important part of it, to be sure, but the crux of Slow research is less about a register of speed than it is about awareness—and especially about the shifts in perception and positioning that can be provoked when we commit to more expansive ways of being in and of the world. That means looking more closely and listening more deeply, noticing fine details and attuning to processes, and at the same time adopting a wider, more holistic view that situates our experiences within larger webs of relations, spaces, and times."
Carolyn F. Strauss, Slow Spatial Research: Chronicles of Radical Affection
Alice Van der Wielen-Honinckx (born 1989) works in the field of choreography, performance and dramaturgy. She studied literature at KULeuven and contemporary performance at Utrecht University. Slowness intrigues her as a means to investigate sensitive sensorial perception, and to cultivate other modes of being and relating.
Recent collaborations include Evelien Cammaert’s performative slideshow Glowachrome Garden (2021), Stav Yeini’s multi-sensorial installation The Senders (2019), and several pieces by Benjamin Vandewalle: his choreographic installations for the public space Studio Cité (2019), his dance performance for the public space Framing The Circle (2018), and his choreographed walk Walking The Line (2017). She performed Annie Vigier & Frank Apertet’s Pièce en sept morceaux, Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris, 2018. Alice lives and works in Brussels.
