Transformers. Landscape sketch for the performing arts from Flanders and beyond

Vlaams Theater Instituut

The performing arts in Flanders are at a turning point. In recent times, the interplay between talented artists, organisers and intermediaries has resulted in a rich and dynamic performing arts landscape. But our society is in full transformation. Developments of a social, economic and cultural nature demand innovative answers and new working models.

How can we make the performing arts landscape a sustainable breeding ground for tomorrow’s society? This landscape sketch of the performing arts in Flanders is an appeal to both politics and the professional field to think out of the box and give shape to the artistic practice of tomorrow.
