Luanda Casella is a writer and performer trying to rescue the art of storytelling from its
mediatized doomed destiny. Her research focuses broadly on the role of literature in the
development of critical thinking; the ways in which individuals relate to narratives to create a
sense of identity, to form their opinion of the world and ultimately protect themselves. By
examining rhetorical concepts through humor, her work exposes language constructions,
exploring unreliable narration in fiction and in everyday communicative processes. She’s an
educator within the drama master program at KASK, a house artist at NTGent and an artist
in residency at deSingel. Luanda is currently touring with the theatre piece KillJoy Quiz.
