SPARKS is a workshop and above all a performance by the Italian artist Francesca Grilli (b. 1978). The performance is carried out by local children aged 9-12 and revolves around the simple but thought-provoking act of placing the reading of our (the adults’) future in the hands of the children. SPARKS takes place in the historic City Council Hall in the middle of Roskilde, where the adult audience is invited in one at a time to listen exclusively – to the children and to the future. Prior to the children’s encounter with the audience, the artist conducts workshops on palmistry, as well as poetic and political contemplation.
