UNI Beautysalon is a project that is established in collaboration with children and children organizations located in the area Bockstael, Brussels. The proposition of the beautysalon is to reflect as a collective head on the meaning of beauty in our society. 

During the residency period various propositions were held in the saloon to build on its visual character. To construct a space were bodies can move as they really desire, evoking sensations that resonate deeply into the interior body by external proposed textures. At the end of the residency, a four days festival was held where we celebrated in the form of an ongoing performance and sensory installation, including one-to-one performances as well as collective actions.
