There’s no doubting that Belgium is brimming with film talent. To help you pick the best of the bunch, the online video platform Avila has curated a careful selection, representing the best of Belgian cinema. On top of that, Avila in collaboration with KVS now sets out to match up theatre and film. Some of the performances we welcome at KVS will get a cinematographic counterpart on Avila. First on the list is Mindblowers 2022, which is all about ‘love’ this year. Avila picked out Kind Hearts, a film by Olivia Rochette and Gerard-Jan Claes.
At the end of 2020, a report gathers the testimonies of 17 trans* sex workers in the Yser neighbourhood of Brussels. One of them has accepted to speak on camera in order to shed light on the violence they suffer. We are pleased to invite you to the screening of the short film YSER on Friday 7 October.
Mawda Means Affection premiered at KVS last year. This creation tells the story of Mawda, the little girl who was killed by a Belgian police bullet in May of 2018. Because the story must continue to be heard, the creation will be performed at our neighbouring Théâtre National in December – the perfect chance to catch this moving play.
This year’s edition of the TheaterFestival has come to an end, and KVS is still basking in the afterglow. We can’t stop dreaming of how KVS face Moya Michael blew us all away with her State of the Union, of all the successful performances, and of the honour bestowed upon KVS face Valentijn Dhaenens: the actors’ guild awarded him the prestigious yearly Theatre Prize.
Our new season is about to kick off, but just before the curtain goes up, we are adding two new performances to the calendar! In Terra baixa, Carme Portaceli creates her own take of Àngel Guimerà’s most universal play about good and evil. And Neci padiri is a new creation by Michael Disanka, in which he investigates his own views on the patriarchy.
