Isabelle Bats (BE)
Isabelle Bats was born in Charleroi and studied at the INSAS in Brussels. She directs, writes, becomes a performer with projects like les petits ruisseaux font les grandes rivières, le plus petit feu d’artifice jamais recensé, perfect match … performances trying to balance between too many words or not enough, actions, fabrics, pop culture and an undeniable desire to talk about what it is to be a girl, a woman, or a call girl.

a fragmented project with music, a bit of lulu (louise brooks), caramel pudding, matches and a few words…
