The project RADIOMUS-E introduces children in a creative way to the medium audio and radiophonic art. Artists Lucas Derycke and Rebecca Lenaerts took the streets with the fifth grade of BS Bronschool in St-Gilles (Brussels). Together with the children they created an audio portrait about their school district. (A project of MUS-E Belgium, spoken language in Dutch and French)
For the third time in row Lies Cuyvers (dance) and Rebecca Lenaerts (theatre) guided a class of schoolchildren and their teacher into the world of the performance arts. In 24 sessions we researched the relationship between breath and movement. The project will be closed with a series of ludic interventions at the local library.

Victoria Deluxe is an artistic organization with a strong focus aimed at breaking stereotypical images. In 2014 Victoria Deluxe launched a new project on the topic of ‘Crisis’. Rebecca has been asked to interview 20 young adults between 15 and 25 about their personal crisis. This could be a family crisis, an identity crisis or an emotional crisis. What do these stories have in common? And what do they tell us about the society we live in?
