Read here the interview of Michael De Cock with artistic director Judith Vindevogel and scenographe Stef Depover.
How do you give direction to your own life?
How do you stand in the storm called life?
What does it mean to be a 'good captain'?
And how do you manage not to lose your own humanity in times of war, violence and hardening?

We, the drowned is the story of an entire city that goes down, told from the point of all the drowned; a raw song about violence, loss and an insatiable longing for the unknown.

The story is based on the book of the same name by Carsten Jensen. After a first successful edition of the reading project, we will be diving again in 2019 with a group of enthusiasts in this book. More information can be found here.
