“Les ballets C de la B wants to invest in the next generation by taking in residents who will get the opportunity to be coached in their work by director Alain Platel and Hildegard Devuyst, Platel’s dramaturg for more than 20 years. The basic idea are one-month-residencies in one of the studios at les ballets. There are no prefixed artistic conditions, no exclusives when it comes to form or movement language. Young artists who think their work would benefit from a residency.”
During my Co-Labo residency I’ll work on a new presentation form. I will show works and objects I want to share with a small audience. While I’m unwrapping them I tell their stories and build up an ephemeral exhibition. The result of this work will be shown during the under construction festival in Gent (Belgium) in February 2018 and in Ramallah (Palestine) in May 2018.
