Ins & outs. A field analysis of the performing arts in Flanders

Vlaams Theater Instituut

‘Ins & Outs. A Field Analysis of the Performing Arts in Flanders’ describes trends that have greatly benefited the performing arts sector. Yet these trends also raise urgent questions. Has there been further growth and hybridisation of the output? Who are the major players in an increasingly dense (co-)production network that extends throughout Belgium and abroad? What is the place of individual artists within this landscape? And is it true that there are no seasons anymore?

Numerical analyses are complemented by essays from guest contributors and interviews by and with performing artists, all of them offering new outlines for a more sustainable practice and policy in the performing arts world.
