TROUBLE has retained the ingredients that previously ensured its success. The get-together, spanning four days has a lot to offer artistically by means of a structured and dense programming, featuring non-standard and un-common formats. Performances using the body as a conduit, but created by artists from the visual arts and contemporary dance, experimental theater, digital arts, music and the night scene ... for an intermingling of artistic families and audiences. Rather than spectacles to consume, TROUBLE focuses on raw live experience, dealing with commitment to self, risk-taking, vulnerability, interactivity. It strikes a balance between local figures and international artists – often discoveries for the Belgian public. A program that proudly gives pride of place to women, to queers, to racialized and minority groups, for a more diverse vision of art, and also a place for emerging artists.
A demanding reflective dimension that nonetheless does not exclude an engaging festive dimension!
