Yuwol June C. is a time-based artist. Their works aim to make one aware of the neglected spots dwelling among us. Their artistic language focuses on the liminal space between words, images, objects, and bodies.

PARASOL is a paid further training programme for young artists to experience and benefit from not only a rehearsal period of three months with each of the choreographers but also to educate themselves in exchange with each other, the choreographers and programmers. In addition to that, they can attend all kinds of events offered at TQW: performances, body and performance practices and theory lectures. Learn more about PARASOL
