Tools for Action is an artist group and functions as a collaborative
platform by giving open-source skill-share workshops on how to make inflatable sculptures and use them for political actions.
Inflatables are floating and light-weight tactical tools, ideal for sending political messages, disrupting scripted forms
of protests or blocking streets. Tools for Action has been working with social movements, schools, universities and theatres
around the world on different issues: climate justice, anti-fascism, trans* visibility and civic engagement.
van Leeuwen has a background in mime and is a co-founder of the physical theatre collective Schwalbe. Her work is characterised
by research in collective movement. Her style is minimalistic and energetic; a seemingly simple act can find a poetic depth
in the duration and interaction between individuals.
In Choreography of Assembly, both artists
will present their past works and talk about their upcoming project ræv rehearsal*: how to come together, dance and ´reclaim
the streets in times of COVID-19.
