2 - 5 November 2016 - Bâtard Festival in Beursschouwburg

Wednesday, October 12, 2016 —  

"Somehow thinking is always ‘to make think’. ‘To make think’, this means opening up a larger space, which is uncertain in its nature and direction. It’s like generating geography without the map, or even cosmography without an atlas." – Jean-Luc Nancy

There are only 3 weeks left before Bâtard Festival takes over the Beursschouwburg for four days. Emerging artists and thinkers bring theatre, film, dance and performance. You get to know them during the artist talks. Food for thought will be served during lectures and at the presentation of the publicationPerforming in the age of performance, or how to do what we do relentlessly? edited by Tom Engels (SARMA). Together with Pianofabriek KunstenwerkplaatsBâtard also presents three new productions.
