During this third edition of the arts festival of slowness, we give you 36 hours to stop and reflect in a society that is all too often rushing forward. Inspired by ancient and other cultures, we experience a different notion of time, by stopping the clock and getting maximal enjoyment from minimal resources.
SLOW has plenty to reflect on: from Zen music in an installation by Lawrence Malstaf in the Concert Hall, to trance with Gnawa music and Indian Dhrupad in the Chamber Music Hall, to tranquil performances in Bruges’s churches and chapels. One eye-catcher will undoubtedly be the complex sand mandala four Buddhist monks compose grain by grain during the weekend. Follow your intuition and forget the clock!
