Throughout this season, the Ad Lib team will be hosting a selection of artists from the Wallonia-Brussels Federation in writing residency, in a room adjacent to its offices.
We are pleased to present the artists who will be with us this autumn and early winter:
Othmane Moumen will talk about his first creation Parti en fumée during the presentation of projects at the Théâtre les Tanneurs in Brussels on October 6th at 3:30 pm in the framework of the focus pro ICI Brussels. The premiere of the short form will take place in November at Théâtre les Tanneurs.
In Parti en fumée, Othmane Moumen tries to decipher the enigma of his father. Six years ago, he was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer… the terminal stage. Since then, he has only one lung left. And he’s still smoking cigarette after cigarette.
Applications for the residencies LIBITUM in Belgium · Edition 2023 in Gaume (BE) will be open from November.
The LIBITUM in Belgium residencies are for artists from all disciplines of artistic creation who integrate in their creative process the necessity of a time of research, experimentation and creation.
These residencies welcome artists in visual arts, digital arts, book arts, audiovisual creation, urban arts, music, theater, dance, circus and street arts. LIBITUM supports personal or collective projects, in the process of creation or development.
Keep an eye on our facebook, instagram and website in November !
In his first creation Parti en fumée, which premieres at the Théâtre les Tanneurs from November 15 to 19, Othmane Moumen delivers a touching and humorous dialogue between a son and his father who has been diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer… the terminal stage.
It is through the intermediary of a puppet built by his own hands, a double of his father, that Othmane Moumen tries to make him speak. This time gained on the death is an opportunity for him to deepen the investigation, to let him tell his story before he goes up in smoke…
XS form of the show in 2022, long form planned for 2023.

A collaboration with the 140, BAMP and Ad Lib.
Two 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).
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).
