During Het Theaterfestival in Brussels five beginning makers of different backgrounds will join conversations with five different directors or dramaturges. These sparring partners are professionals who look, conceive and think differently and are able to bring with them a bundle of knowledge full of texts, books, movies, methodologies en networks. In that way, the five beginning artists can test their concept on five different frameworks. Set up by Evelyne Coussens and Giovanni Baudonck.
Sparring Partners: Sarah Eisa (creator and dramaturge TARSENAAL/LAZARUS), Ellen Stynen (dramaturg o.a. het KIP and Toneelhuis), Mokhallad Rasem (director Toneelhuis), Bart Capelle (dramaturge a.o. Lucinda Ra), Mike van Alfen (NL, creator, coach and lecturer)
With the support of the Flemish Community.
