How much can one imagine, feel, and how many times can one gain trust and lose trust in a voice, within only 4 minutes and 33 seconds? In the stillness and quietness of the first lock-down, while bodies are being trapped, new kinds of sounds and thoughts are finally being heard – are finally being said. In “The Last Name of John Cage”, the director tends to represent a certain kind of silence and plays with the spectators’ ability to fill in the blanks, and create their own images and stories. Silence becomes then a possibility to listen to our own patience, and look at our own sounds.

A little heads-up

We are aware that the topics we discuss on this website are very sensitive. Make sure to check in with yourself on how much you want to see and which topics are okay for you to comprehend in this moment. Remember to take a break whenever you need it. Some people feel more at ease to experience the website with someone they feel safe and comfortable with.


We use trigger and content warnings for our website. Why?
A trigger or content warning is in essence a “consent button for content” (1). We want to provide as much information and input as possible, also as an instrument in the healing processes. However, we understand that certain topics can trigger a psychological or physical response that may be overwhelming. “By putting choice back into the hands of those who have had traumatic experiences, they help create a safe space. This way, those with trauma can decide when and how to engage with the content.” (2) We want to show that we acknowledge your experience and encourage you to decide whether you want to engage in a certain topic or not.
