Ouder Kind and À travers l’autre at Theaterfestival
On Tuesday 28 May the Theaterfestival announced its autumn programme. Three cheers for our house, because three KVS faces were selected! Bruno Vanden Broecke will be in attendance with Ouder Kind, the performance he created with close friend and director Raven Ruëll. And sisters Nathalie and Doris Bokongo Nkume, aka Les Mybalés, will present their poetic dance performance À travers l’autre. A great token of recognition for these artists, and a great chance for our audience to attend these performances if you hadn’t managed before!
Best of the season
The Theaterfestival puts the spotlights on the very best of the Flemish, Brussels and Dutch theatre scenes have to offer for ten days each year. The organisation invites you to enjoy the most ground-breaking and interesting theatre performances of the past season one last time. The jury who created this year’s beautiful selection included Evelyne Coussens (De Morgen, Rekto:verso, …), Charlotte De Somviele (De Standaard, Etcetera), Pieter T’Jonck (De Morgen), Mia Vaerman, Karel Vanhaesebrouck (teacher RITCS & EHB), Filip Tielens (De Standaard) and Herien Wensink (De Volkskrant).
“Ouder Kind is mercilessly honest theatre, vulnerable and naked, about two friends, about theatre, and so much more: about the colonial past and present, about friendship, and about commitment." - Jury report Theaterfestival
Ouder Kind is shown in NTGent on Wednesday 11 and Thursday 12 September. À travers l’autre is shown on Monday 9 September in the Dom Hall of festival centre Vooruit.
