Welcome

As from the 2018-19 season, the Swiss director and author Milo Rau will take over the artistic leadership of NTGent. He will succeed Johan Simons, whose artistic curatorship will then come to an end. The artistic team also includes Stefan Bläske, Rau’s dramaturge at IIPM (International Institute of Political Murder) and Steven Heene, the company’s artistic coordinator. In their productions, Rau and his team will aim for global realism, developing a theatre that links the local to the European, and they wish to create productions in our city theatre that can tour internationally.
