During the festival Turbulences in Namur, ASSITEJ BELGIUM will organize a second national meeting. The aim is that artists, companies and professionals from the three Belgian communities can get to know each other better and can come to a real exchange. The day will be a mix of networking moments and discussions about topics such as language issues, coproduction and diversity. The detailed programme can be found below. This day will be the perfect opportunity to get to know your colleagues from the other side of the language border!
We offer ten ASSITEJ members the opportunity to present their work in a 5-minute pitch. Please indicate in the registration form whether you are interested in pitching your work/company/organization. We will have to make a selection, but there will be similar opportunities during future gatherings. You will receive guidelines for the pitch once you have been selected.
At 7pm, you have the possibility to see the show La Chambre Rouge (15+) by the French company la Compagnie Esquimots. Please note that you have to make your reservations by contacting Isabelle Limbort-Langendries: tel. 064 66 57 07 – firstname.lastname@example.org. Professionals pay 7 euros.
