A cosy evening with music, visuals and poetry, in which Monica Kamara invites fellow female artists to share their experiences of getting hurt and the healing process that follows. Because healing is a process which happens within, but does not have to be done alone.

The new wave of Israeli violence against the inhabitants of the Palestinian territories deserves a response. By bombing Palestinian civilians, Israel again (and with the support of the US) tries to crush resistance. But the Palestinians continue to fight for their liberation. This edition of By any Beats necessary is about that resistance by artists and activists. Because here in Belgium too, decolonisation means nothing without the liberation of Palestine.

This year, two young men have already lost their lives in a Brussels police station: Ibrahima Barrie and Ilyes Abbedou. When around 100 demonstrators took to the streets to protest against police impunity, 245 people were brutally arrested, many of them passers-by. And for the first time, a police union broke the culture of silence. On Sunday, Headquarters of the Movement invited several dancers and spoken word artists to give a voice to victims of police violence.

Tue 26.01 - Thu 28.01.21

Borrowing elements from role-playing and escape rooms, Job is an online game performance in which you are remotely commanding a live avatar. The performance unfolds as a puzzle-solving narrative, located in the storage and technical rooms of Kaaitheater. Job explores the possibility of an avatar to ‘prefer not to’ follow your commands, and addresses the difficulty artists face towards the demand for increasing production and efficiency.
