Meet the Artist: Interviews & post-show conversations
Who exactly are those artists coming from afar and sometimes from very nearby? What are they here for? They would love to tell you, as we would too! A group of six enthusiastic interviewers Skyped their way across the world, from China to Argentina, from Australia to South Africa. And sometimes the interviewees were no more than a kilometre away here in Groningen. Many of the artists in the international main programme have told their tale. These can be found in brief clips as well as in written interviews on our website.
After some of the international performances, the post-show interviews were done with the makers. The interviews were moderated by an experienced journalist Joost Ramaer, in total 14 after-the-show conversations were engaged, with the audience and artists, for an average of 45 people per talk.
