laGeste is looking for Palestinian children

laGeste (kabinet k + les ballets C de la B), The Freedom Theatreand Douban Professional Dance are looking for Palestinian children for a new project.

With someone will always be missing, Belgian choreographers Kwint Manshoven and Joke Laureyns are making a physical performance that spans different generations of Palestinians. The makers will be working with Palestinians who all live in different places: on the West Bank,in Gaza, East Jerusalem, in the 48, in the camps of Lebanon or in Ghent. Each status hides a context, stories, tensions, sensibilities. Through images, movement and music, they will build a performance full of magic and poetry, in which children play along with adult dancers.

Are you between 8 and 11 years old? Do you live near Ghent? And do you feel like performing on stage ? Technical background is not required: any child who likes movement is welcome to join for a playful movement-workshop.
