If the pandemic has forced artistic processes to be more isolated, in this edition the Kunstenfestivaldesarts has decided to open a temporary and shared artistic residency. For ten days, Dina Mimi, Roland Gunst, Salvatore Calcagno, and Nikima Jagudajev work in four spaces in the Kaaistudios. While each of them works on different research projects, they have moments of collective discussion. On the last two days, a public opening is held in which this ongoing research is shared.

Warning: this show is cancelled to help contain the spread of the new coronavirus. 

Of what does the practice of choreographing consist? In Rewriting, Jonathan Burrows attempts – by turns hesitantly and exuberantly – to map out the unknown territory known as choreography. In contrast to the dominant model, which assumes that a successful production is the result of a fixed, predetermined idea, Burrows proposes a practice of a slow, coincidental accumulation of meanings.

On August 3, 2018 Kim Snauwaert and Anyuta Wiazemsky Snauwaert were legally married in the City Hall of Ghent. One of the reasons was for obtaining a residence permit, but mostly with the intention of creating 'a sustainable community living.’ But what does that mean? In this performance the artists talk about their process and reveal their artistic premise.

Sarah Vanhee has been conducting research on screaming since 2013. In collected screams, she embodies uttered and unuttered scientific, philosophical, mythological, artistic and political screams. She focuses both on socially accepted and collective screaming, as well as on darker, more intimate variants. She attempts to re-claim screaming as an instrument, as a weapon, as something curative, as relaxation, but also as a means to express pain, excitement, fear, anger, joy or anything inexpressible.

A phrase is haunting the globe: We are the many. Some may find these words troubling, if not frightening, whereas others see it as most joyful. It probably depends on whether you think of yourself as belonging to the many or not. And what about phrases such as ‘we are the people’ or even ‘we are the 99 %’? In a three hour lecture performance, Dieter Lesage presents the central questions of his upcoming book Parliament and the Many. A Theory of Radical Democracy.
