A symbiosis between "enfant perdu" and tutu

By Laura TomassiniLex Kleren Switch to German for original article

An upside-down "K", a plus and an "A": What looks kind of weird at first is the name of Luxembourg's newest artists' collective. As the winner of a call for tenders as part of the "Neistart - Lëtzebuerg - Kultur" package of measures, the K+A artists' collective has set up shop in the "Annexes" of Bourglinster Castle and now wants to let creativity flow here.

A collaborative laboratory of creation, that's how the annex of the old castle in Bourglinster describe themselves. What were once stables for the horses of noble lords has been a place of encounter and culture since 2013. Artists of all kinds can take up residence in the studios and give free rein to their ideas here with a view of the magnificent Renaissance entrance gate. Since April 1, the "Annexes" have nine new faces: the creative minds of the K+A collective.

If you hang around the country's urban dance scene, many of the names should sound familiar. But the list of the collective's members surprises with its diversity, because the project's main goal is one thing above all: to unite arts and forces. "It's not just about dance, it's not just about photography or theater. Our vision is closely linked to the fact that we are all talented and, above all, thirsty and that is precisely our wealth", explains Daniel Fragoso alias Black Magic Tea, one of the artists who have taken up residence in the "Annexes" for the next three years.
