13 December 2016 20:00 - 22:00
In collaboration with _The Life Fair_ at Het Nieuwe Instituut this 'dilemma-evening' looks at the other in our beds and in our hearts. "An inquiry into our modern way of being with each other, sex, and ofcourse the ultimate relationship: romantic love."

We have enough trouble sorting out our own lives so how much space is there for the other?
