KONT Magazine

is a magazine and a platform boosting collaborative cross-disciplinary creations. We match sensitive and sensible artists, designers, writers, dancers, photographers, musicians, performers, ... to encourage each other and united, take a prominent place in society. KONTs heart lies in Eindhoven.

KONT hosts informal gatherings for makers, curators and anyone interested in meeting and working with them, so called Slow Portfolio Dates. Subscribe to our newsletter (scroll down) if you would like to participate.

‘Negrociations’ (theatre/music)

October 10 2019 , 19:30 (15 euro)

Pand P (programmed by KONT+Parktheater), Eindhoven

KONT and Pand P invite you to this robust social commentary disseminated by monologues and dialogues, movements and panoramic live music, an energetic performance with dance, theatre and music by three artists. Negrociations moves freely through time; sometimes very actual and other times it ramages through the past - confronting human rights, human relations, inter-generational conflicts, inequality and injustice. With humour-sometimes light, sometimes very dark, the general form deeply explores the content. Our Chief Griet Menschaert will explain how she met director Bodé Owa in Antwerp and why she convinced the Parktheater to bring this piece to Eindhoven. There will be time to informally discuss the content with Owa after the performance. English spoken.
