Re-claiming Space - Khadija El Kharraz Alami

| 19 March 2021
Currently in residence at NTGent: Khadija El Kharraz Alami, in the run-up to her creation in 2022: an adaptation of The Waves by Virginia Woolf.

During her residency, she invites different artists she meets for the first time to share stories, perspectives, feelings and desires together. The artists she meets are Aminata Demba, Dounia Muhammad, Kopano Maroga, Lois Brochez, Musia Mwankumi en Nyira Hens. This form of research, with the working title Re-Claiming Space, will also be shared with our audience in Ghent this autumn during an evening in the theatre. The exact date will follow.

It is time to re-claim and re-share artistic space.

She says about her research: "It is time to reclaim and re-share artistic space. There is a need for polyphony that reflects social reality, in all openness and with room for vulnerability - so not from a dominant, coercive discourse. That is why I am organising this series of meetings: as an exercise in redistributing our attention, our space, our time."
