Agnes Quackels and Barbara Van Lindt came in as new artistic and general coordinators at Kaaitheater at the end of 2019. They brought a motto – or rather, a question: How to Be Many? A question that itself contains many questions. It is this question, with its many ramifications, that will guide Kaaitheater in the coming years.

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 28th February, Headquarters of the Mouvement, who have been in residency at Kaaistudio's since Summer 2020, invited several dancers and spoken word artists to give a voice to victims of police violence.

For their 10th anniversary, De Wereld Morgen is inviting significant thinkers and writers to Kaaitheater to reflect on the revolts that set off a decade ago. There were the Arab uprisings, the Greek revolts, the Indignados, the Occupy movements, the Black Lives Matters movement, and the indigenous struggles from Canada to Chile. These and other struggles captured imaginations worldwide, but were gradually overshadowed by state and global powers’ violent responses. High time to look back, ánd forward.

After their residency Ondine Cloez, Nada Gambier, Eszter Némethi, Michiel Reynaert and Gosie Vervloessem felt they needed to write this letter. As a way to document and share their two weeks, because the privilege of the simple context of a room with a view, where they could look backwards or forwards without anxiety, without a promise of a future but before anything else, is not to be underestimated.
