Maandag 26 april openen we de deuren met de voorstelling Jonathan van Bruno Vanden Broecke en Valentijn Dhaenens. De datum is niet toevallig gekozen, precies aan het einde van deze lockdown. De voorstelling zal onder strikte maatregelen doorgaan en alle protocollen respecteren om de veiligheid van het publiek te garanderen.
From book to theatre and from there to the screen: this spring, Emma Bovary’s story is catapulted from the 19th century into 2021. Gustave Flaubert’s 1856 novel, which sent shockwaves through France at the time, has become an intense play about desire and adultery, about impossible love and the patriarchy, about life and death, in the hands of directors Carme Portaceli and Michael De Cock. Jaco Van Dormael adapted their creation into a film version, premiering on Canvas on Friday 30 April.

Still Standing, a temporary collaboration between cultural sector employees, cultural organisations and arts associations across Belgium, is launching a call for spontaneous creative actions throughout the country on Saturday 20 February. With these actions they want to bring attention to the World Day of Social Justice, as the corona crisis continues to hit the most socially vulnerable people the hardest. The action committee can no longer wait for the ‘cultural spring’ to come, so they are creating one themselves.

13 March 2021 marks the one-year anniversary of the lockdown. Hardly a cause for celebration, as the cultural sector has been almost completely shut since that day. Apart from a short period of limited easing of restrictions over summer, most public events in the past year have been cancelled. The cultural crisis group (Crisiscel Cultuur) asks the government to make (public) activity possible again from 13 March, under strict safety precautions. KVS supports this demand.
