In 2024, WIPCOOP – the Work In Progress cooperation by Mestizo Arts Platform – sets up shop in Brussels for the ninth time. What the WIP? WIPCOOP offers the arts sector and audiences a chance to take a sneak peek at what new artistic creations are brewing and developing on the performing arts scene.

Join the ride: on 16 and 17 October artists from the Brussels scene will show a mixed audience of professionals and curious viewers where they stand with the development of their new stage creations. Each of them will perform 30 minutes of their Work in Progress. They then have a one-hour conversation with a collective of dramaturges, workshops, producers and programmers about their creation and about possible support. During these breaks, other artists talk about new work, new initiatives or projects, in artist talks with the audience.

WIPCOOP – the Work In Progress Cooperative of Mestizo Arts Platform – is a year-round development track in Antwerp, Brussels, Ghent, Mechelen and Leuven. The main purpose? Using the power of the cooperative to make new artistic work visible, to set up a dialogue, and to match artists with organisations to help them further develop and perform their work.

The Works In Progress take place during the day and are free to attend. An overview of creations that have blossomed from previous WIPCOOP-editions and their play dates in various theatres can be found at www.mestizoartsplatform.be.

This year, these artists will showcase a sample of their work (more information about their work in progress will follow soon):

  • Alphonse Eklou
  • Julia Färber Data
  • Mbunga Kongi Milka
  • Souhaïla Amri
  • Impulsion Danse
  • Nastasya Kharitonova
