Plat(e)form(e): visitors programme performing arts @Kunstenfestivaldesarts

18-20 May 2022
Visitors programmeLes Brigittines, Brussels

(c) Michiel Devijver

Discover the unique performing arts scene of Flanders, Wallonia and Brussels. Plat(e)form(e) was born from a desire to support and highlight the local scene by drawing on the presence of international artists and the increased visibility created by the festival.

By presenting performances, works in progress and pitches by artists, Plat(e)form(e) acts as a temporary space for mutual learning, and a place to reflect on what it means to create today. Also within this framework, SACD will host an open seminar discussing writing in the field of documentary theatre.
