KVS 24/7: a new virtual KVS stage
We live in strange times. Freedoms we considered the norm are being reined in. None of us can simply go wherever we want, our lives are measured in 1.5-metre increments and neat queues. At KVS, this makes us more eager than ever to spread our performances and artistic creations far and wide. That’s why, beside KVS BOL, KVS BOX and our new outdoor stage, we are also introducing a fourth podium. This virtual stage wants to add to our freedoms. Visitors can follow new creations live from wherever they like, or rewatch them later. KVS 24/7 is an on-demand home for our performances, for free!
On KVS 24/7 visitors are not only confronted with a single performance, but with the entire creative universe around it. The platform will allow visitors to dig deeper and take in context and background information. You’ll be able to take a look behind the scenes, listen to interviews with creators, read relevant literature, watch urgent debates, …
This timeless universe brings creators and visitors closer together. We will also be organising talks with artists, dramaturges, authors, … and visitors will be able to use the chat function to interact with each other about the performances.
KVS is Brussels’ Flemish city theatre. Our unique position in the capital of Flanders, Belgium and Europe is the alpha and omega of our operations. KVS aims to reinterpret the repertoire in relation to the city that is more than ever the whole world. KVS embraces the city and its plurality and intends to amplify its artistic voice in the arts field. KVS thus sees interculturality on and around the stage not as an assignment or a challenge, but as a logical principle. As is a strong presence in Flanders and internationally.
KVS has an open ensemble of theatre-makers, performers, directors, choreographers and authors. At KVS, they develop both their own personal work and shared projects, plus cross-pollination over periods of years. We intend to be a place of mental and physical encounter, an urban artery running from tradition to the future. On the basis of an inclusive view of what art is capable of, we aim to be an intercultural, inter-generational and open-gender city theatre that resonates far beyond Brussels.
