The KKNK (Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees) takes place in Outdtshoorn from 8-15 April. This ever popular festival boasts a strong Flemish presence this year as the Government of Flanders is supporting a number of events. First up is KRITIEK, a new project launched by Kunste Onbeperk to promote arts journalism. Six writers will participate in a Festival mentorship programme, which includes workshops (6 and 7 April). Flemish art journalist Evelyne Coussens was one of the workshop presenters. The Government of Flanders has also provided the support to bring choreographer Benjamin Vandewalle to the KKNK where he will stage his Walking the LIne, a cross between performance, choreography and installations. Ma tête est mon village (My head is my village) showcases another Flemish choreographer, Jan Wallyn.
