    From 11/05 to 3/06, the international performing arts festival Kunstenfestivaldesarts invades Brussels. The festival is dedicated to contemporary theatre and dance, performance and visual arts. BRONKS is one of the many venues where the festival descends. We even go a step further as BRONKS is also one of the co-producers of Kate McIntosh's performance Lake Life. A performance aimed at a mixed audience of teenagers and adults.

    Be welcome. At BRONKS or elsewhere.

For the first time, Kunstenfestivaldesarts commissioned a project for a mixed audience of young people and adults, inviting artist Kate McIntosh to create a new universe to be experienced. In this collaboration with BRONKS, McIntosh and scenographer Nadia Lauro craft an immersive landscape that offers fresh ways of seeing and being together. How changeable and fluid are we? How do we tangle with each other and the world? Lake Life is a collaborative game, a puzzle, and a celebration – step in with two feet and maybe leave with three. The game is transformative, imaginary and real. The audience is invited to explore unprecedented spaces, a dreamlike world of imaginary bodies and self-transformation, where altered senses become palpable and the boundaries of identity are fluid. While the socio-physical fragility created by the pandemic may be experienced differently by young and old, the (re)discovery of trust, fun, and free imagination is a collective concern. How can we break free from the roles we’re expected to play in the outside world? What connects us all? Perhaps it’s the possibility of imagining a new world where we can reinvent our ways from scratch…
