Antropical is a multidisciplinary practical research residency within the Kolla festival setting founded in 2013. It is connecting young creatives to collaborate on artistic responses that challenge inherent geographical and ethnographic issues raised at the festival. The project merges the performing arts (dance, theatre, circus, conceptual art, video, audiovisual art, etc.) with theory (philosophy, [art] history, curating, political science, etc.), design (landscape design, graphic design, architecture), education (art therapy, teaching, etc.) and any other discipline interested in partaking in the debate on the relation between art and festival culture.
Antropical is an outdoor residency and only happens once a year for 3 weeks in Luxembourg in a natural reserve. The Reception centre Mirador in the commune of Steinfort, situated just at the border to Belgium is in a Natural reserve, officially since 2004. Before, the area was harshly influenced by the train connection to Brussels in the 19th century and its long history of iron and stone mining. On one side, it has been very profitable economically, on the other side, it has engraved harsh scars in the natural landscapes. Only after the exhaustion of the mines, the nature could slowly grow back. It was in 1996 when humans came to help the nature and started the reforestation project.
