Haroun Couvreur is a part of the cast of 'Dissident' (season 2021-2022), the new production by Lara Staal and NTGent in which young people known at school as 'troublemakers' take the stage and educate the audience.
Haroun is 17 years old and describes himself as a critical thinker. This has come to the surface throughout his school career. He is someone who likes to take a step back sometimes, and firstly analyze what is happening around him.
So far, his college career has not been a smooth one. The expectation of constant achievement is not somehting that suits him. His view of the school system's approach has become an accumulation of frustrations throughout these years. The inequality and extreme power relations irritate him immensely and have therefore led to enormous demotivation.
Respect and appreciation for his parents are the only reasons he still goes to school.
