Manifest Knipsel

The Ghent Manifesto

Upon his appointment in 2018, Milo Rau, the current artistic director of NTGent, wrote a manifesto with ten rules that the city theatre of the future should meet.

Mission statement

As a city theatre, NTGent wants to question, motivate and rouse a diverse audience. It does so by making and presenting high-profile productions and by mobilizing theatre for social debate.

Sustainability

As a city theatre we will produce around 8 new performances every season, a series of political events, we will retake pieces from the repertoire and we will receive more than 40 guest performances. Together, there are more than 250 performances in Ghent as well as on tour. A lot of productions, a lot of tones, a lot of audience, that has an impact.We are aware of this and therefore make choices that make our theatre as social and accessible as possible to our audience, minimise the impact on our living environment, and make working conditions as pleasant as possible.

HOW WE COMMIT OURSELVES

PEOPLE OF NTGENT

There are no better ambassadors for a city theatre than the people who give their best every day for NTGent. 'People of NTGent' is a series of portraits filmed by Pascal Poissonier that puts them in the spotlight. The series started in the spring of 2021. #peopleofntgent
