Look at us being paid to do what we are the best at doing… our art!
Generously funded by «Un Futur Pour La Culture» at the Fédération Wallonie-Bruxelles, my manuscript and continuous line illustrations for this children’s theatre play called DELPHI and our packed multidisciplinary application scaffolded by all of Kalliopi Bolovinou’s musical theatre experience, linguistic skill and wisdom
has been lauded by the panel of judges as “among the best ranked.”
Then the Kaleidoscope production team paired us up with such an incredible human, who also turns out to be a fantastic actor: Olivier Francart will be joining us in a theatre, art & music workshop on stage at Ecole No 8, Avenue du Bois de la Cambre, (Uccle) this Friday.
Then again on stage at Columban Theatre (Wavre) 20-24 June.
Hopefully with actress Cecile Delberghe too.
We already workshopped at the gorgeous Théâtre Mercelis (look at the frescos!) until covid knocked us out.
But then PointCulture swooped in, offered us offices and the SACD Author’s Rights granted access to their co-working spaces…
So here we are, developing what we do best, with theatres and office spaces and actors, and the rough date for the next residency in Brussels is…(drum roll please)… The Senghor theatre in November!
To all those asking me when the final show will be: Spring 2023 is the official answer, The Senghor will have the 2022-23 program finalised in May and only then we will know the exact dates, that’s the way it goes in theatre, apparently.
Let’s just celebrate for now; quality children’s theatre is back on track!
