About the position

As a dramaturgy intern, during this internship you will work closely with Kristin Rogghe, a KVS city dramaturge. You provide substantive and organisational support for various projects in theatre and dance. The focus of your internship is on the creation of the performance Mawda, dat betekent tederheid / ça veut dire tendresse (Marie-Aurore d'Awans & Pauline Beugnies), a Belgian co-production with a documentary slant that will premiere at the end of September 2021. In addition, you will have the opportunity to work with various artists who are part of the open ensemble of KVS or who will be in residence there.
