One of the most important representatives of contemporary European theatre, the Belgian art group Needcompany, perform three shows which present the richness and diversity of its artistic work – one primarily musical, the second dramatic, and the third dance-based.
Needcompany is an international, multilingual and multidisciplinary arts group which was founded by Jan Lauwers (BE) and Grace Ellen Barkey (ID/BE) in 1986, and they were joined by Maarten Seghers (NL) as a member of the artistic management in 2001. Their opus covers various fields of artistic activities, amongst which are theatre, dance, performance and visual arts, literature and much more. They have performed at the most famous festivals, in museums and theatres around the world. They have received numerous awards, amongst which Jan Lauwers was awarded the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at the La Biennale di Venezia in 2014.
