In the documentary theatre performance Mining Stories, Silke Huysmans and Hannes Dereere bring together different perspectives on one catastrophic event. Their starting point is the recent mining disaster in Brazil (November 2015) nearby the house where Silke grew up as a child. A mud stream, caused by a dam failure, washed away several villages. After this disaster, Silke and Hannes started to collect the stories of different voices who are all related in one way or another to the disaster and brought them together in a sound patchwork. All of them (habitants, scientists, historians, activists, neurologists, fisher men and politicians) tell their version of the story with their particular context and interest. In this performance they take a look at the different kinds of understanding which appear in the encounter of the different voices.
