Maestro Alain Platel

On 4 Nov 2022, director Alain Platel received recognition as Maestro Honoris Causa from the hands of Antwerp governor Cathy Berx. Following this, ANOTHER SACRE was danced by the dancers who graduated from Antwerp Conservatory of Music in 2021 - a project Alain Platel and Bérengère Bodin supervised.

Hildegard De Vuyst had the honour of delivering the laudatory speech. De Vuyst has been working with Platel as a dramaturge since 1995. Meanwhile, she shares the artistic direction of laGeste with Joke Laureyns. The laudation became an ode to the guts and love with which Platel relates to the world.
