“I seek the beauty in the tragical, in pain”

Barbara Vandendriessche grew up in a small city Roeselare in Belgium, not far away from the French border. Her decision to study and practice theater directing and scenography brought her to Antwerp and finally to Brussels. “During the first years, I was sometimes overwhelmed, but then I learned to appreciate
the city. Its complexity, its different municipalities and neighborhoods, its people”.

In an exclusive interview, she reveals the historical characters that are the inspiration for her work, her relation to photography, the Greek tragedy, and the people facing the uncertainty during the coronavirus pandemic.
