[caption id="attachment_8622" align="alignright" width="308" caption="© Edit Kaldor"][/caption] Programme announced for 2011 Kunstenfestivaldesarts, including artists from Japan, India, Europe and the world. World premiere of Seen at Secundrabad where Indian director Zuleikha Chaudhari is collaborating with the Raqs Media Collective. The Belgian premiere of Amsterdam-based Edit Kaldor's production C'est du Chinois gives audiences an accelerated course in Mandarin. Performance by Toshiki Okada/chelfitsch from Yokohama, Japan. The Kunstenfestivaldesarts takes place in May every year. For a three-week period, it takes over around fifteen theatres and arts centres in Brussels, as well as various other venues in the city, which kindly open their doors to the festival. The Kunstenfestivaldesarts comprises a selection of artistic work created by Belgian and international artists: remarkable new works which translate a personal vision of the world today that the artists would like to share with audiences who are prepared to challenge and broaden their perspectives. The Kunstenfestivaldesarts is a cosmopolitan city festival. We are part of a complex network of communities that makes territorial, linguistic and cultural divides increasingly porous. The city is the environment “par excellence” in which this cosmopolitan society can be seen.
