With Thanks for Being Here, Ontroerend Goed honours the audience. The brand-new performance by the collective that touches the world from Ghent, is a shared moment full of different expectations, points of view and lives. Directed by Alexander Devriendt, the top cast includes Charlotte De Bruyne, Karolien De Bleser, Patricia Kargbo and Leonore Spee.

In a game of perspectives, Ontroerend Goed, artist in residence at NTGent, lets us experience the impossibility of a shared perspective. There ís no shared perspective, only a multiverse of individual realities.

Perhaps true understanding lies in the realisation that we will never fully understand each other. And that is fine. Let us all celebrate multiplicity. And thank you for being here!

‘AN INGENIOUS PALACE OF MIRRORS (...) THAT OUR COLLECTIVE PRESENCE IS A SOURCE OF CHANGE, THAT IS CERTAIN. A RADICAL HOPEFUL REALISATION’
De Morgen (BE) **** - Evelyne Coussens

Awarded numerous prizes at festivals in Europe, Australia and North America, Ontroerend Goed's work has been performed all over the world since 2007. Remarkably, productions are also given remakes in other languages: there are versions in Russian, French, Mandarin, Cantonese and Kazakh, among others.

The history of the universe in a nutshell, spectators as voters voting out actors, a performance as a palindrome or a wandering in a labyrinth of mirrors and avatars to meet yourself: Ontroerend Goed makes unpredictability its trademark, in form and content. Intense experiences, built in the reality of theatre.

Beyond madness, tenderness awaits Only humans can fantasise Until it holds from the inside There's all that future, still With closed eyes, you can see whomever you’d like
