CONTE-QUEST

The word CONTE-QUEST comes from the French word ‘conte’ (story) and the English word ‘conquest’. Betsy Dentzer and Luisa Bevilacqua created this project to promote the art of storytelling for adults in Luxembourg.

Regularly hired to tell stories to young audiences throughout the country, the two artists recognized that they are rarely asked by cultural institutions to work for an adult audience.

The purpose of CONTE-QUEST is therefore to build up the loyalty of this new audience over the long term.To reach this goal, the artists explore new artistic forms that go beyond traditional shows and conventional frameworks.

 

The project spans two periods (2021/2022 & 2022/2023) and has two main components:

- a monthly radio programme on storytelling called RadiOdyssee

- several storytelling evenings in unusual locations in the City of Luxembourg as well as a more elaborate storytelling show presented on the theatre stage at the end of the project in summer 2023.
