het Theater Festival

Join our TheaterFestivalRedactie 2024

Wed 08 May 2024

Would you enjoy interviewing directors, technicians, actors or our theatre-loving audience? Would you like to illustrate the ins and outs of the festival? Or do you prefer hitting the road with your audio recorder? Do not hesitate and join the editorial team of het TheaterFestival! 


During the festival, an enthusiastic group of editors will work with different media to interview theatre makers, reflect on performances and report. Your reports will feature in the magazine, on our blog, in podcasts, radio broadcasts and videos. Two coordinators offer you learning opportunities and guidance.  Editor and writer Sixtine Bérard guides the writers and illustrators. Audio creator Hannah Lyssens leads the audio team.
