ronde van belgië | tour de belgique

Since the beginning of 2016, actress and writer Laurence Vielle has been our National Poetess! In a few months, in January 2018, it will be time for her to pass the torch to her partner Els Moors, a Dutch-speaking Belgian poetess. Before handing over her title to Els, Laurence wanted to close her tenure as national poetess with a show she staged with the support and collaboration of the Antwerp-based VONK & Zonen.
