Like many right now, KVS is just about bouncing off the walls. That’s why we reinvented ourselves time and again in the last year. With KVS Breaks Out on our back square in autumn, since the beginning of this year in hospitals, schools and care homes, and on our digital platform KVS 24/7. We keep looking for ways to bring you culture. From 2 to 7 February, theatre creators Fien Leysen and Manu Siebens are exhibiting Numi Yaldati, a visual theatre installation that 4 visitors at a time can experience – safely, by reservation. And from 19 January you can rediscover (Not) my paradise by Sachli Gholamalizad on KVS 24/7 . We’ve got a whole lot of other excitement planned – stay tuned for more soon …
Michael De Cock and Carme Portaceli put pen to paper for this joint opinion piece, which was published in De Standaard and Le Soir. They hope theatre companies all over Europe will be able to get back to work soon. The protocols and expertise to do so safely are already in place.
Op 23 en 24 november vindt in Mons de rechtzaak rond de dood van de tweejarige Mawda plaats. Het kindje, nauwelijks een peuter, kwam in de nacht van 16 op 17 mei om het leven door een politiekogel op de snelweg nabij Mons. Samen met haar Koerdische familie was ze op de vlucht voor alle geweld thuis. Maar een politieagent schoot op het minibusje waarin ze reisden en raakte daarbij het kind. Ze stierf eenzaam in een ambulance.
The coronavirus is at cruising speed and it is up to all of us, as a society, to stop it. Together with you, KVS and its collaborators want to do what is necessary. This is why we must cancel all our planned performances until the end of January. Every visitor who has bought a ticket for one or more of these performances will be refunded in full.
ICE is choreographed for a body and a bunch of ropes. Bahar Temiz starts from stories about polar explorers, and their expeditions to Antarctica in the beginning of the 20th century. Driven by a desire for discovery, they expose themselves to extreme conditions and put their lives at risk, and step into an unknown world of ice.
