ronde van belgië | tour de belgique
Since the beginning of 2016, actress and writer Laurence Vielle has been our National Poetess! In a few months, in January 2018, it will be time for her to pass the torch to her partner Els Moors, a Dutch-speaking Belgian poetess. Before handing over her title to Els, Laurence wanted to close her tenure as national poetess with a show she staged with the support and collaboration of the Antwerp-based VONK & Zonen.
During this evening entitled "Le tour de Belgique | De Ronde van België", Laurence will share with the public her experience as a National Poetess by reading, singing, dancing or whispering the themes that have touched her during the last two years: the attacks in Brussels, immigration in Belgium, her encounters on the train... Accompanied by Els, who will be her guest for the evening, they will also discuss the search for the "poetic centre of Belgium" that they conducted together, in May 2017, through an exceptional peril!
