State of the Union & Youth 2023 + Actor awards ceremony

conversations
07.09.2023

The annual moment to catch up as a performing arts sector at the start of a new cultural season! With the festive and critical State of the Union & Youth behind us, conversations traditionally get off to a fast start.

The State of the Union 2023 will be spoken by actor, rapper, podcast creator and writer Rashif El Kaoui. You’ll find out who brings the State of the Youth 2023 soon.

After the states, the actor awards will be presented. With the support of ArtistsUnited, Het TheaterFestival and De Acteursgilde are joining forces to expand the actor awards. From now on, the jury of Het TheaterFestival will compile a shortlist for the members of the Acteursgilde to vote on.

• Rashif El Kaoui studied Theatre at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp and has since become an actor, audio-maker and writer. In 2016, he won the El Hizjra Literature Prize in the prose category. He has already been published in Das Magazin and Das Mag’s Sampler 2018. As a columnist for De Standaard and Knack, he writes opinion pieces on social hot buttons. As a columnist for the Poëziekrant, he casts an alternative view on the definition of poetics and literature. As a maker he has worked with Monty, Theater Zuidplein, Het Zuidelijk Toneel (De Bastaard) and Fabuleus (De Kwestbaren), among others. His own work often assumes co-creation with your audience/target group and walking the line between reality, fiction and audience engagement. As an actor, he has appeared in several productions by Het Nieuwstedelijk (Kiss ‘n Ride, Mooie Jaren & BLIK) and KVS (Malcolm X , Odysseus. Een zwerver komt thuis, Drarrie in de nacht & Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf by Mesut Arslan and JR). He also teaches at the Royal Conservatory of Antwerp, LUCA Drama, Fortio/Syntra & the Academy for word, music and dance in Mortsel, among others.
