Rabot 4-358 is a documentary performance about the social residential towers of Ghent’s Rabot district and the workshop that existed there for 26 months. This workshop started as a personal initiative of Simon Allemeersch and Wannes Degelin (Samenlevingsopbouw Gent). The performance tells it's story and tries to answer seemingly simple questions: how come these buildings once had a very good reputation? Who came up with their absurd form? And why are the towers actually being demolished? A story from the inside about housing, economy, poverty and personal fictions. At the intersection of architecture, urban development, history and design.

• Simon Allemeersch is a theatermaker and doctoral student at Ghent University, and is a member of the semi-permanent collective Lucinda Ra. He previously presented De brievenschijver/Letter home (in cooperation with Globe Aroma) and Grondwerk by Lucinda Ra in the Kaaitheater programme.

‘How are you now?’ It is with this question that Rabot 2 begins. In 2010, Simon Allemeersch installed his workshop in one of the dilapidated social housing blocks in the Rabot neighbourhood in Ghent. Now he has made Rabot 2, in which he looks up the people he collaborated with at the time. Starting from individual testimonials, he zooms out to a bigger story about private and public wealth.
