We are a collective of artists, sex workers, cinematographers, social sciences researchers, students at INSAS, ERG, Beaux-Arts. IDORU is the ASBL that forms our legal framework.

We are DuoMuse, an new art song duo based in Antwerp, consisting of Eloise Mabille (BE), soprano, and Lydia Michel (USA), piano.

In mijn recente boek 'Tienduizend Idioten' (Poëtica, schrijfproces en pedagogie van het hybride Theaterschrijven vanuit Bakhtin's 'Meerstemmigheid') laat ik zien hoe meerstemmigheid een concept kan zijn om naar theaterteksten en naar schrijven, schrijfprocessen en kunst te kijken, waardoor dramaturgie en maakstrategieën vanzelf inclusiever en diverser worden.
