Meeting each other
Join us for dinner
Our workspace needs to feel like coming home. We want to create a warm and safe environment for artists. Each residence comes with a meal where we can catch up or talk about the past week.
A few times a year we invite others to join our dinner: other artists, professionals, creative minds, people who live in the neighborhood, audience … We believe that moments like these are, literally, food for thought.
We stimulate presenation that creates a bidirectional encounter with the audience, that goes beyond passively enjoying a performance. That is why performances that wreck that fourth wall have a special place in our hearts.
Our active audience is also invited to join the process of the creation, to come see try-outs, to give feedback and to join our dinner with artists and professionals.
Counsel for Inspiration
The concept of our workspace is inspired by the dreams and desires of the Flemish circus artists. We aim to honor the involvement of artists by actively engaging with those who create or conduct research within the workspace. However, we also extend an invitation for them to engage in a more formal manner, through a Council for Inspiration comprised of artists.
Every year we send an open invitation to Flemish artists to have a meeting together. We evaluate the functioning of the workspace, such as what has been going great or what has not. But it is also an invitation to look at and dream about the future together.
Would you like to be part of this counsel? We send the invites at the end of every year. So keep up with us by checking the news items on our website or sign up for our newsletter.
What if we would put some random artists together? Would that not lead to the most incredible ideas? Some of them might be completely foolish, but it might also be the beginning of something new. We want to provide a nurturing environment for these ideas to flourish.
Apart from all the plans and ideas our workspace might already has, we strive to maintain an open-minded approach towards unforeseen questions and spontaneous ideas.. That is why we always offer a blank space for new ideas without any expectations.
A brainstorm, an artistic ‘hackaton’, a stage for improvisation, an inspiring trip to somewhere? We are open for all of your ideas. Let us know via firstname.lastname@example.org.
