Welcome!

 

This online silence lab aims to collect different visions of silence at the initiative of dramatist Lieke Benders. There is room for people who hate silent train compartments, for yoga masters, and for noise-makers. Together they are constructing a huge silence file.

Read, see, and listen to the silence experiences of others and share your own experiences in images, sounds, or words.

STIL.

This online silence lab was inspired by the real silence lab created by Hoge Fronten/Lieke Benders at the monastery in Wittem as part of the long-term project STIL. It is here that Lieke Benders and others create a growing series of performances, installations, and happenings with silence as the theme. Their work will be on display at various locations throughout the Netherlands and Flanders.

STIL. is supported by Provincie Limburg, Gemeente Maastricht, Klooster Wittem, BankGiro Loterij Fonds, Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds Limburg, Cultura Nova, Fonds Podiumkunsten and Dommelhof.
