Work In Progress 2016

KVS & Mestizo Arts Platform

In one day, five emerging artists (or duos/collectives/groups of artists) share each 30 minutes of a “Work In Progress” (WIP) with a small audience. The showings are immediately followed by an in-depth feedback conversation between the artists/performers and a small group of professionals (art critics, experienced artists, dramaturges, programmers…). In the meantime, the audience can attend mini-conferences on inspiring cultural projects and artistic initiatives in Brussels.

This formula has happened since several years in the context of the Mestizo Arts Festival (MAF). You can read more about it here. MAF also organizes two half days of Work in Progress on October 17 and 18 in Antwerp. On October 19 we organise the first Brussels edition at KVS, with a selection of artists from the Brussels scene. You can discover the line-up below! The following professionals are part of the Brussels feedback group: Moya Michael (dancer & choreographer), Fabrice Murgia (theater director & general director Théâtre National), Nedjma Hadj (programmer), Tine De Pourcq (project coordinator Mestizo Arts Platform), Wouter Hillaert (reviewer and editorial coordinator Rekto: Verso), Axelle De Smaele (artistic collaborator workspacebrussels), Kristin Rogghe (city dramaturge), Sonia Debal (programmer), Charlotte De Somviele (art critic Etcetera, De Standaard) a.o.

And at the end of the day, you can also attend the performance Malcolm X - a new KVS production with a large and diverse cast of (Belgian and international) performers, musicians, dancers, actors and slammers.

Be welcome!
