Working Title Festival - Jun 2016


Workspacebrussels is a workspace for performance and live arts in their most diverse forms. Together with young artists we explore how
the meeting of various disciplines such as performance, installation art, music and visual art can lead up to new art forms and new ways to exchange with the audience. So first of all we are a creative breeding ground that, thanks to our collaborations with Kaaitheater, Rosas, Les Brigittines, Ultima Vez and Beursschouwburg connects with very different parts of Brussels.

During our biannual festival The Working Title Situation we invite you to discover some of the most intriguing projects young artists are developing in Brussels. And you can take that literally, because during this edition you’ll discover a side of Brussels you’ve never seen before! During our first weekend we occupy an emblematic abandoned metal factory in Ixelles: Quincaillerie Vander Eycken. At the end of June we set up camp in the city centre with Beursschouwburg to explore the grounds of ParckFarm, a hidden oasis of urban gardens in the new Tour & Taxi park.

Under the title Living the Image, over 30 artists explore the world that surrounds us and the ways we interact with it. How do we deal with the images and situations that constitute our daily lives? How do they influence us and how can we influence them?  Do disasters have only downsides and is the commercial ideal of happiness our highest good? How can our imagination come into the game? And after all, are our imagination, perception and reality as separated as we think they are?


Come and celebrate the spirit of discovery,
over two weekends of performances, installations, workshops, concerts and inspiring encounters!
