Made in deSingel

About a year ago deSingel celebrated the opening of a major 12,000m² infrastructure expansion. Since then the extension has been used with an intensity that exceeds our wildest expectations. Just as Beel's building links up perfectly naturally with Stynen's design, the use of the new spaces has also developed very naturally. Consequently, production work by Belgian and international artists can now at last take place on our expanded arts campus, so that rehearsal periods in the new studios are able to culminate in premiere in our main halls. From now on, all performances, concerts and exhibitions made in house will be grouped together in a category called 'Made in deSingel'. More information on these production processes is available at www.desingel.be, on our Facebook page and in special blogs.

 

What?

'Made in deSingel' is a collective term for all productions by internationally renowned artists where the creative process takes place partly or wholly in deSingel, and which have their Belgian or world premiere in deSingel.
It is a new label that emphasises deSingel's role as a production centre and respects the many national and international centres, companies and artists that have been involved in the creative process.
It facilitates the needs of makers so that they can focus on both the content and the technical side of the creative process under optimal conditions.

How?

Our policy is to support artistic projects that are directly related to our programme. However, our support can be given in a variety of ways. This depends on:

  • the artist's needs
    We not only provide the place but also supervise the production, support its technical realisation, take on the role of sounding board, engage in dramaturgical dialogue, assist in distribution and communication, etc.
  • the needs of the discipline
    Our support varies according to the discipline involved.

    Architecture
    As in the past, we accept our responsibility in the promotion of architecture. The production of our exhibitions is wholly in the hands of deSingel, though for two seasons this has been in collaboration with the Flemish Architecture Institute.

    Music
    Both young musicians and renowned musical ensembles find we are willing to lend an ear to their requests to work in our  new studios for a period of several days or weeks. This collaboration ranges from regular rehearsal sessions for concert programmes to be presented in deSingel and then on tour, to creation processes that take place in consultation with the artists. These creations are based on music but regularly explore the areas bordering on other art forms such as visual art, installation, film, theatre and performance.

    Performing Arts
    Production work by Belgian and international artists is carried out in our new studios, which are thus indispensable. One condition is that the creation process should result in Belgian or world premieres in our halls.  
    One exception to this rule is that some Toneelhuis productions are created in our studios before their premiere at the Toneelhuis.
