Applications for Belgium’s LIBITUM Residencies are open until December 20 at midnight!
The first edition of this program will gather and host about 20 artists per week from June 4 to 25, 2023 in Gaume (Belgium). Between 20 and 25 projects will be supported in residence and a maximum of 8 projects will be eligible for a grant.
Belgium’s LIBITUM residencies are open to the following disciplines: music, dance, theater, circus and street arts, digital arts, audiovisual creation, visual arts, fashion, design, book art, urban arts, installation and performance.
Three of the creations for young audiences accompanied by Ad Lib have been selected for the Festival Noël au Théâtre (CTEJ) in December:
Kosmos, a story of a girl named Gaia, who made the sky, mountains and potato chips, and then had a son, a certain Cronos, who himself had quite famous children. The show, accessible from 7 years old, directed by Jasmina Douieb and Lara Hubinont, revisiting Greek cosmology with humor and poetry through object theater, will be presented on December 28th at 2pm and 6pm at the Centre Culturel Jacques Franck (Brussels).
Pandora (by the same companies), a short funny poetic and all terrain form which revisits an episode of the Greek cosmogony in object theater will be at the Balsamine on December 29 at 8pm.
Llum invites us into an imaginary world, a poetic journey, between fascination and fear, shadow and light. A duet between a choreographer and a light designer, the choreographed show is open to all, from 5 to 95 years old, and will be presented at 11:30 am on December 29 and 30 at the Théâtre National (Brussels).
Throughout this season, the Ad Lib team will be hosting a selection of artists from the Wallonia-Brussels Federation in writing and research residency.
We are pleased to present the artists who will be with us this autumn and early winter:
