Sarma is an artistic and discursive laboratory for criticism, dramaturgy, research and creation in the field of dance and beyond. Sarma collects and organizes discursive practices. By compiling author based or thematically related text anthologies, published online on our website. But also by curating festivals, by providing dramaturgical assistance to performers, by organizing workshops, discussions, lectures, installations and research projects. Sarma is a breeding ground for artists and theoreticians to collaborate on shared problems and premises. Sarma aims for artistic work- and presentation formats that are inspiring to all.
Sarma was initiated in 2000 by Myriam Van Imschoot, a former Belgian dance critic and now a dance scholar, and Jeroen Peeters, a dance critic and a dramaturg. Kristien Van den Brande is the coordinator and contact person for Sarma.
