Since 2019 Jozef Wouters has shared his Decoratelier in Brussels with Barry Ahmad Talib, an artist from Sagale (Guinee-Conakry)

During the long winter months, they cut thousands of leaves out of fabric for Barry’s tree sculptures. Out of those sessions, they weave a tissue of stories and sounds, and eventually, a show. Together with a group of builders, musicians, performers and poets they build a world between night and day, temporality and future, visibility and invisibility.  

A Day is a Hundred Years is Jozef Wouters’ most personal work to date. With a turning stage and a scenography comprised of various layers, shadows and stories, Jozef and his team create a kind of planetarium within the space of the theatre. An infinitely mutable and negotiable space which trades the central perspective for a multitude of gazes, in which the scenography sees us more than we see it.
