We will try to see through your eyes. We may swap roles. But although we are present together, we cannot truly understand all these different points of view.

Thanks for Being Here  is the new play by the renowned collective Ontroerend Goed. The performance has its world premiere at NTGent, where Ontroerend Goed is artist in residence. Thanks for Being Here  is an acknowledgment of the impossibility of seeing from a shared perspective. And precisely in this impossibility lies the magic of a joint experience — a collective journey akin to a shared hallucination. A celebration of all perspectives present. So... thanks for being here!

"'FUNERAL' OFFERS ART AS A VEHICLE FOR LOSS AND REMEMBRANCE; A NOD TO THE BEAUTY IN ALL WE MISS"
The Guardian **** - on 'Funeral'

Thanks for Being Here is a performance about the way we look at things. In a game of perspectives, Ontroerend Goed will make the audience experience the boundaries of a shared perspective. Because our points of view are influenced by the context we live in, the media we consume, or the social circles we frequent. Maybe true understanding even lies in realizing that we might never fully understand each other. And that is fine.

After Funeral, Thanks for Being Here is the second performance by Ontroerend Goed on the celebration of life. This time, there’s nothing to mourn, only a celebration of a multitude of realities.
