TheaterFestival Antwerp 2018 professionals' programme



Are you a performing arts professional (programmer, curator, dramaturge...) with a clear interest in Dutch and Flemish work and willing to stay for a three-day programme?
Flanders Arts Institute, TheaterFestival Flanders and Dutch Performing Arts are organising Highlights from the Lowlands, an international visitors’ programme during this summer’s TheaterFestival in Antwerp. The programme will allow a group of international performing arts professionals to immerse themselves in the work of artists and arts organisations in Flanders, Brussels and The Netherlands.

In a short frame of time participants will get to see as much performances as possible, have exchanges with artists and peers, and have the chance to meet different Flemish and Dutch artists and companies in person. This programme will focus on theatre and interdisciplinary works with the potential of going international.

We are looking for professionals with an interest in Flemish and Dutch work, who can be there during the full 3 days. Contact Marijke De Moor via marijke@kunsten.be if you are interested in participating.

Programme
The programme includes reflection and inspiration on new-urban creation, a programme curated by Dries Douibi (Beursschouwburg, Brussels), Marieke De Munck (Vooruit, Ghent), Viktorien Van Hulst (Boulevard Festival, 's Hertogenbosch) and Inge Koks (Podium Mozaïek, Amsterdam), different meeting moments and performances from the TheaterFestival selection. The programme contains a selection of contemporary Flemish and Dutch performing arts with an international potential. We will also bring you to a number of inspiring art spaces in Antwerp and have a trip to Ghent. International programmers will attend a large number of performances and presentations in a short period of time and will personally get to know Flemish and Dutch artists and companies.
