For the second edition of #makesomeroom, CC Sint Niklaas is once again making room this season for artists who will help define the future of our art field and the audience will discover fresh work by new creators. On the programme, a double bill: a personal monologue in which Nela Deleu addresses recognisable themes & society-critical circus theatre with Emiliano Cedillo. 

With VLAMINGO, Nela Deleu reveals her path to become Fleming. A specific and recognisable love story.

VLAMINGO is an intimate story, a monologue in documentary form. An autobiographical play about integration. Through personal experiences, Nela Deleu goes in search of a universal understanding of integration, assimilation, adaptation, appreciation… With a generous portion of humour, she reflects on the importance of Dutch and general language development. And takes you along in her quest for ways to overcome cultural and mentality differences.

Text & play: Nela Deleu – Coach: Nele Vereecken – With the support of Mestizo Arts Platform/WIPCOOP, LARF! De Kazematten, KAAP.

 Some people are more privileged than others and no one chose to be born poor, with no money, no home.

LA PAUVRETE DES PAUVRES FAIT LA RICHESSE DES RICHES, Emiliano Cedillo enters the stage of circus and theatre where he questions identity and society. His first solo is a combination of juggling, acrobatics, artistic cycling and theatre.
It is not about getting the best seat, nor being the best performer. It is about sharing and emotions: making people laugh and have fun!

Concept & performance: Emiliano Cedillo – Outside eye: Wided Ouassale and Aurelie di Marino / In collaboration with TransfoCollect. With the support of Mestizo Arts Platform/WIPCOOP.
