From Friday 24 February up to and including Thursday 2 March 2017, Krokusfestival celebrates its 20th anniversary with theatre, dance, video, music, performances and installations. The festival schedules seven premieres, nine Belgian premieres of shows from the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden, Italy, Scotland and Spain, three co-productions and a residency. In addition, Krokusfestival sets up its own Museum of Us (all) in which children temporarily hand over an object with a personal story.
In addition to the artistic programme, Krokusfestival also organises a programme for professionals, with reflection and networking moments. Some highlights of the programme: on Sunday 26th, you can listen to the presentation of the PUSH LAB on ‘gender’ that is part of the European project PUSH. On Monday 27th, there will be a session on collaborations outside of Europe (‘Think local, create global’), and on the 28th, a whole day will be devoted to dance for young audiences, with the State of the Flemish Youth Dance by choreographer Ugo Dehaes, a data analysis of Flanders Arts Institute/Kunstenpunt and a panel discussion with dance experts from different European countries.
