There are many global challenges that connect us worldwide, such as the climate crisis or a pandemic. However, their consequences affect some more than others. This injustice demands a response in the form of international solidarity. But what does international solidarity mean in these turbulent times? And how can we best organise it in the future? Together with 11.11.11 we will zoom in on these themes during the book launch of 11.11.11 director Els Hertogen's new publication From Charity to Justice.

JURY SELECTION – What does scenography mean today? What kinds of places or landscapes are relevant in this era? Jozef Wouters established a temporary Decoratelier – a motley crew of builders, thinkers, former sailors, and a retired landscape painter – to find answers on these questions. Unfortunately, this production cannot be reprised. Jozef Wouters and Jeroen Peeters are collaborating with the TheaterFestival to publish the script of the play with the De Nieuwe Toneelbibliotheek. The first edition will be presented during an official book presentation at the TheaterFestival.. De eerste druk wordt gepresenteerd tijdens een officieel moment op het TheaterFestival.
