Welcome to NTTent, the festive opening of our 24-25 season. Together with our house artists, the new artistic direction of NTGent will conceive possible futures that are yet unknown.

The complete NTTent programme will be announced at the beginning of September.

For four days in a row in October, an impressive red tent will take pride of place on Sint-Baafsplein in Ghent, right in front of the NTGent Schouwburg. The NTTent is a place for radical imagination, where our new artistic leaders and NTGent makers imagine a shared future that we don’t yet know in conversation with dozens of partners.

The 24-25 season opens with a gaze directed at the past, present and future. Milo Rau’s famous Ghent Manifesto will be transferred to the NTGent archive, we will gather an archive of tears for Beyond the Spoken, and BERLIN will look back on its twenty-year existence with YouTurn. That is a new label for which the company will be opening up its archives.

The NTTent itself comes from that very archive: it was designed especially for the production Moscow  in 2009. The tent has been handed over to NTGent. Every year the tent will arrive at a different ‘place of loss’ in Ghent, where we will try to re-imagine what has been lost.

For the opening weekend of the 24 –25 ­season, we will bring what ­usually happens within the walls of the theatre building out onto Sint-Baafsplein, into public space.

In the mornings, you can ‘recharge your batteries’ thanks to Recharge by Dries Depoorter, and in the afternoons, you can discover the topics that intensely preoccupy our in-house makers. Lara Staal will talk about STAGES, the research project on sustainability in theatre, and Chokri Ben Chikha will seek reconci­liation with Buffalo supporters. We fill the evenings with music and when night falls, Surveillance by Dries Depoorter keeps watch over our tent.

Be sure to mark 5 October in your diary, when we will be celebrating BERLIN’s anniversary as well as the 125th birthday of the Schouwburg. It was built in 1899 and has been the home of NTGent since 1965, which is celebrating its own 60th anniversary. We are organising a too-gigantic-by-far birthday party for everyone who feels it is his/her/their party.

The complete NTTent programme will be announced at the beginning of September.
