What happens when artists play with the codes of the visual and performing arts? Which negotations take place when you leave your own medium to explore another? As it turns out, those who are considered innovative on the one hand, are often labeled amateur on the other. In twenty-five conversations with leading artists, curators, dramaturgs and production workers, Katleen Van Langendonck explores which choices are made when creating a contemporary performance, taking into account all layers of the creative process. In doing so, she draws on her practical experience as coordinator and curator of Performatik, the Brussels biennial of contemporary performance.
