Come and meet a group of artists from various contemporary performing arts disciplines (recently) exiled in Europe and currently based in France, Germany and Belgium, where they create exciting and engaging work.
Meet the Makers is an opportunity for performing arts programmers to exchange ideas with contemporary artists whose exciting and engaging work has not yet integrated international stages.
Following artists will present his or her interests, current projects and future plans:
- Muddar Al Haggi – theatre (Syria/Germany)
- Wael Ali – theatre (Syria/France)
- Wael Alkak – music (Syria/France)
- Yazan Iwidat – dance (Palestine/Belgium)
- Wael Kadour – theatre (Syria/France)
- Kubra Khademi – performance art (Afghanistan/France)
- Enkidu Khaled – theatre (Iraq/Belgium),
- Mey Sefan – dance (Syria/Germany)
- Wihad Sulaiman – theatre (Syria/Germany)
These artists join Kunstenfestivaldesarts for a few days to dive into its programme and discover the work of some of their international peers; through meetings and visits in Brussels, they will get in touch with some of the essential players in the international collaboration circuits. They will also meet each other and take the time to explore their own positions and interests and perhaps find common (international) ground.
The artists are from a variety of performing arts disciplines and countries: they are currently based in France, Germany and Belgium where they create exciting and engaging work.
