The pursuit of success is obsessive in our society. Even though it generates more losers than winners. These losers are often made invisible, or make themselves invisible. In Ne mosquito pas, performing artists question their own relationship to success and failure by working with elements they themselves experience as 'failures' within their practice.

They explore ideas that ultimately never made it into a performance. The 'deleted scenes', in the broad sense of the term, from their previous works form the starting point for a short (solo) performance in which they stage a negative inappropriate second-hand version of their artistic practice, in which a categorical distinction between good and bad taste is declared useless. The motto is: "If at first you don't succeed failure may be your style" (Quentin Crisp).

Performers: Simon Baetens, Sophia Danae Vorvilla, Desiree Cerocien, Loucka Elie Fiagan, Jonathan Franz.

Simon Van Schuylenbergh lives and works in Brussels. He graduated in 2017 from the Master’s Program of drama at KASK in Ghent.
Simon lives in the off-space volksroom and works and shows within the open collective ‘Artist Commons Brussels’. In the summer of 2019 he founded the performance platform ‘ne mosquito pas’ where a community of Brussels artists reflect together on their personal notion of failure and success. In the season of 2020-2021, he will perform in Benjamin Abel Meirhaeghe’s opera a revue.
