ICK got in contact with Karel through a correspondence between him and dramaturge Jesse Vanhoeck about the social body for the online magazine Body In Revolt. As from 2019, ICK takes the collaboration to the next level by also supporting his work as a maker.
Karel Tuytschaever has been selected by Dansmakers Amsterdam and ICK for the New Adventures residency program. For four weeks he gets studio, theater and artistic guidance to explore and deepen a new idea. The residency period ends with a presentation to the public. Karel uses this period to work on his new creation STRANGER.
