Reaching into the past and looking into the future, 8 festival alumni and 8 students of dance, performance and theatre studies are invited to write about works from the festival’s 2019 programme. Texts from experienced makers are put in parallel with those of aspiring artists, creating a layered and multi-generational dialogue upon the performances.
Poems, interviews, and other writing formats will be welcome, offering the festival’s artists with constructive and delicate reflections upon their pieces, while also providing the audience with a plurality of perspectives upon the curated works. The edited texts will be available on brut’s website shortly after the performances take place.
As an addition to critical reviews, this online publication will focus more on shared thoughts and less on judgement, aiming to spark conversations and exchanges between members of the scene and those interested. Like letters to be read right away or a bit later, to keep the discourse alive after the shows are over, to think and feel and wonder together.
