‘Killjoy Quiz’ subverts the idea of scoring points on knowledge by proposing a game where learning how to enter into dialogue is the ultimate goal. Words are powerful and eloquence is a weapon.

✒ “Eloquence and imagination are powerful and liberating weapons” - De Standaard (BE) ****
✒ "A sour bomb, hidden in a tempting cream cake (...) A layered knowledge game with grim undertones in which a dazzling hostess puts not only her quiz candidates but also us, the audience, on the grid of wokeness" --- De Morgen
✒ ""The intelligence with which Casella addresses socially relevant topics feels particularly inspiring" - Jury Report Theaterfestival
Killjoy Quiz was selected as one of the best performances of 2022 by the jury of the Belgian Theaterfestival.
Luanda Casella is a writer and performer trying to rescue the art of storytelling from its mediatized doomed destiny. Her research focuses broadly on the role of literature in the development of critical thinking; the ways in which individuals relate to narratives to create a sense of identity, to form their opinion of the world and ultimately protect themselves. By examining rhetorical concepts through humor, her work exposes language constructions, exploring unreliable narration in fiction and in everyday communicative processes. During the last few years, she has been studying 'the rhetoric of deception', investigating the use of storytelling in communication media, institutions, and politics.
