15.03.2019 - KAAITHEATER
How do artists let the story they want to tell determine if their work will become a film, a sculpture, a painting, an installation, a choreography or performance? What negotiations take place when they appropriate different disciplinary specialisms? How do they play with their spatial and temporal parameters? What is the politics of indisciplinary practices?

17.03.2019 - KAAITHEATER
One of the Performatik19 threads is death, loss and performativity. In March we will commemorate the 2016 attacks on Brussels. During U-Loss, Barbara Raes will develop new rituals around loss, together with six artists with very different cultural backgrounds. Pieter Van Bogaert thinks and talks about the beauty of the end. Lotte van den Berg will explore the borders between performance, therapy and politics, while IN/FINITY looks at the inter-section between care and art. This discussion is moderated by Katleen Van Langendonck.
