WIPCOOP conquers Brussels for the seventh year in a row. An unmissable chance for the arts sector and audiences to get a sneak peek of what’s buzzing and developing on the Brussels performing arts scene.

This year, six artists will be showing their new creations to an audience of professionals and culture buffs at KVS, on Wednesday 26 and Thursday 27 October. They each present an extract of 30 minutes from their works in progress, followed by a one-hour conversation with a group of dramaturges, workplaces, producers and programmers about their work.

WIPCOOP – the Work In Progress Cooperative of Mestizo Arts Platform – is a year-round development track in Brussels, Antwerp, Ghent, Mechelen and Leuven. Its 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. The following artists are already preparing: Désirée Cerocien, Eli Mathieu-Bustos, Lorena Spindler, Alex Masgutov, Naïm Belhaloumi en Emiliano Cedillo. Additionally, an evening programme with fully-fledged productions will be organised, showcasing creations by artists who took part in former WIPCOOP editions.
