From Monday 18/10 onwards Cinema RITCS is obliged to ask for the Covid Safe Ticket (CST) at the reception of the cinema. This means that they expect you to have a valid CST and to have your identity card at hand to check the validity of your CST. Once a green screen appears, you will be admitted to the cinema. You may then remove your mouth mask. In other words, you are not obliged to wear the mask. If you prefer to keep your mask on, you are of course free to do so.You can sit wherever you want, there will no longer be any restrictions, nor will any seats have to be kept free between different groups.
With the CST you will be able to enjoy a cinema experience as before the pandemic.
Gosie Vervloessem’s artistic research focuses on the position of the researcher in times of multiple crises. Her work faces the challenges that arise within this role, and looks for new ways of producing knowledge. Her practice is an ongoing quest on finding tools to relate to a world that is messy and chaotic. Therefore she juggles with and re-interprets the practices of cooking, digesting, co-digesting, immersion or osmosis, as tools to literally embody that relation. [Immersion or osmosis in comparison with digestion covers more holes than the mouth and anus and therefore it seems a richer concept.]Her work focuses mainly on the concept of nature and unravelling the ideas that underpin this concept. In doing that, she identifies herself as a Sick Detective, a character that involves the vegetal kingdom as a possible ally in her research. Her work is highly inspired by plant biology, comic books, and horror movies. It is mainly presented as lecture-performance, in the form of workshops or publications.
