Casting call: We are looking for volunteers for "Liebestod- Histoire(s) du théâtre III".

Theater is the oldest art form of human kind. What is theater, what it’s tragic, what it’s power? After Milo Rau and Faustin Linyekula, the Spanish performance artist and director Angélica Liddell is making the third part of the series Histoire(s) du Théâtre at NTGent, a long-term performative investigation on theater.
