Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


Brussels-based theatre Koninklijke Vlaamse Schouwburg (KVS) relocated part of its program to Kinshasa in the Democratic Republic of the Congo to collaborate with Kin artists and partners. Experimenting with a participatory curatorial approach, the KVS gradually moved from a model that showcased local artists to an interactive encounter in which sharing and discussing cultural processes became as important as the performances.
