On stage with Quinsy Gario!
Quinsy Gario is looking for extras (m / w / x) for a performance at KVS in the framework of SLOW #02 (Slam Our World). A unique format which links urban word art to theater.
Quinsy Gario is a Curaçao Dutch poet, artist and activist. He studied Theater, Film and Television Studies with a focus on Gender and Postcolonial Studies at Utrecht University. He is well known for his art project 'Black Pete-Is Racism', which has triggered a broad social debate.
On Thursday 01/06/2017 and Friday 02/06/2017 he is looking for extras who want to take part in the performance on stage. No acting/artist experience needed. In addition, he will share the KVS stage with local artists. They pursue a heroic as well as vulnerable attempt to disseminate the colorful, versatile soul of the city.
Quinsy Gario on his plans with SLOW #02:
'In my sights are the politics of belonging. The construction of the feeling of being entilted to call the place you reside yours or have deep affection for it. In Europe there is currently a strong authorative institutional voice that continuously disturbs this construction process for many who are culturally, religiously or racially minoritized.'
Age: Between 16 and 70 years old

Interest? Send your contact details to: delphine.somers [at] kvs.be (Delphine Somers) before 24/05/2017
