Casting Call: Parade Agora

A performative and discursive event with Eleni Kamma at Beursschouwburg, Brussels

Due to the corona pandemic, this event will take a different form than foreseen. Unfortunately, it is no longer in public space, and no longer publicly accessible.

Rue Auguste Ortsstraat 20/28

English spoken

Casting Call: Parade Agora is an inclusive and interactive performance-discussion that engages with the ostensible opposition between the individual and the collective. It involves democracy, prosperity, solidarity and other concepts unpacking ways of living together, while engendering disagreements and controversy in society.

How do we build the courage and create the connections needed to speak to the other – no matter how far or near – and to forge relationships, but also to express one’s own opinion sincerely? How can we use public space to explore relationships between our individual and collective lives, and find ‘public time’ for them? The Beursplein in Brussels was chosen as the location of this event because it is perhaps the most vibrant public space in the ‘capital’ of Europe.
