Edition 2022: 27-30.10.2022.

This 11th edition of the KIKK festival will immerse itself in the notion of empathy in order to explore our connections and our relationship with others, human and non-human beings. With a focus on storytelling and dialogue, the festival explores how empathy can not only transform our personal relationships, but also help address societal challenges.

After more than two years of a global pandemic and many moments of shared life online, it is important to look back, to analyze how these double lives between the physical and the virtual came together. What happens when virtual spaces replace personal relationships and the physical world? Are they not a source of increased loneliness, cutting our senses from the essential connections to what defines us as human beings? How can new technologies bring us back to the physical connections, the sense of belonging and connection with other beings and with ourselves?

This year, the KIKK festival will revisit what makes us human, we will explore the physical connections, the concept of presence and appeal to all our senses to dive into our emotions and illuminate what brings us together.
