We are collaborating with a group to adapt one of our productions.

Season 2021-2022 promises to be an exciting year for our 'Spiegelprojecten'.

Five schools in Ghent and the Fontys Hogeschool voor de Kunsten, Tilburg, together with a theater teacher, are working out their tone moment, based on the themes of the NTGent performance Dissident by Lara Staal.

Between 16 and 21 November 2021 we will organize a Spiegelfestival in which we will show their work to the general public.

When Dissident goes on tour through Flanders and the Netherlands, we will set up 'Spiegelprojecten' with local schools. For example, in Almere we work together with Bontehond.

Theatre in the classroom

This is where actors exchange their stage for a classroom.

Tik 051018 5

This is where actors exchange their stage for a classroom.

Our actors report to an ordinary classroom and prove that you can do a fine piece of theater there too! In a playful and interactive performance, they teach the students (and their teacher) all about the theater code, the theater script, theater terminology and what you need to be able to make theater. Theater in the Classroom is enjoyed by 2nd and 3rd grade secondary students, but it turned out that adults enjoy this theater game hard too!

NTGent organises this together with Toneelgroep Maastricht.

Practical:

Target group: 2nd and 3rd grade classes. Always at your school, in a classroom, to a single class group. No technical equipment required. approx 40'

Price: €160 + 6% VAT
