eXplore dance festival :: HOW HEAVY ARE MY THOUGHTS >> Sunday, October 3rd, 19h00, Round Hall„If my thoughts are heavier than usual, is my head heavier than usual too?”
In most of the literature it is stated that the weight of an adult human brain varies between 1,300 –1,500 g, depending on age and gender. The weight of a human head is between 4 and 6 kg. Is it possible that our head weighs differently depending on our mental, physical, emotional or physiological state? By highjacking the format of a lecture, the performance creates a narrative about research into the diverse qualities of thought(s), linking it to a series of events that changed the life of I.M.
Ivana Müller grew up in Croatia but most of her life lived and worked as a foreigner.

Ivana Müller is one of the founding members of LISA (2004-2009), a collaborative production and discursive platform based in Amsterdam.
