To elevate the literary performance to an exciting and full-fledged theatrical genre, that is the mission of Behoud de Begeerte (literally Preserve the Passion). Our aim is to present a kaleidoscopic view of the national and international literary field on stage, with artistically relevant directorial concepts and carefully assembled texts from different literary genres. In dialogue with the authors, we offer programs for broad and diverse audiences, with tours in Belgium and abroad but also through one-off events, small and large. In this way Behoud de Begeerte casts itself as an ambassador of all literature.
