Reflecting On and Through Performing Arts
1 Introduction, 3 Acts and 2 Intermezzos

The Time We Share is a book that has been structured like a play, outlining the themes that have featured in the Kunstenfestivaldesarts over the past two decades. It attempts to provide a lasting record of its ephemeral artistic practices, as well as open up the past to the future. Like a reference work, it invites readers to think about how the performing arts reflect and shape a society. Through a number of different viewpoints, The Time We Share includes projects that have left their mark on the first nineteen editions of the festival. It consists of a large number of new contributions by creators and theorists who think about the world from a performing arts perspective.
