NACHTKANT

Confrontational concert about abundance

Theaterproductiehuis Zeeland (NL)

A gigantic wheel of fortune promises us paradise (a potential prize), an inflatable boat, a house, or a dream holiday. Six musicians and a narrator take to the stage to create a world that revolves around dreams and successes. Large video images take us out to sea where huge container ships transport our consumables and where pleasure boats travel alongside inflatable dinghies.

The site-specific performance NACHTKANT, life is but a dream offers a concert about riches and what, apparently, is needed to make affluence come our way. A video installation with live music as the sea herself tells the story. A performance that juxtaposes the massive influx of what we buy, and own, with the story of Addi from the Gambia, afloat in a small rubber boat surrounded by waves, who knows that he may never reach the other side or find the world of his dreams.

Buy a day ticket or passe-partout for O. 2024 now and be the first to order tickets this spring. Individual tickets for this performance are available from early April.
