Kunstenfestivaldesarts is an international arts festival dedicated to contemporary theatre, performance and dance. It occasionally also opens itself to film and visual arts. It is the live character of these disciplines that brings them all together. The festival explores hybrid and unconventional forms, and always addresses these fundamental questions: what can live on stage mean today? Who is represented? And who’s watching, who’s experiencing this live moment?
