1. PEOPLE IN BUILDINGS: NEW SHOW!
On Friday 25th and Saturday 26th, 7PM Yon Chanta, Yon Davy and Nget Rady will give the second performance of the PEOPLE IN BUILDINGS diptych in our gallery, inspired by Robert Longo’s painting series “Men in Cities”. This time they let themselves be inspired by everyday common moves: Moves people make at home, in factories, stores or hospitals. Together with Director Bob Ruijzendaal they translated these moves into dance. It led them to new and interesting vocabulary that will be a guarantee for another surprising show. Free Entrance!
2. WOMEN’S FILM FEST“FEMIVAL”
