Loving is allowed

Collectief Elan(d) is the playful collective of Katrijn De Cooman, Chloé Geers and Jitse Huysmans. All former Vooruit residents, the trio explores the boundaries between theatre, dance and visual arts. For Loving is Allowed they work together with Fonkel, the organisation that throws the craziest parties without ever bothering the neighbours, thanks to the ‘silent disco’ concept.

In Loving is Allowed, music and theatre flow together. Collectief Elan(d) researches social dynamics and mutual relations between the participants. This visual performance invites you to a physical experience during which you’ll shift between collectivism and individualism. How do you perceive your fellow dancing humans? Do you have a ‘wait and see’ attitude, or do you take the initiative? You’ll find out in this theatrical dance party.
