Theater acts and art during #incu16

Our theater programme is all about S.H.I.T. or 'Spass Haben Im Theater'. Seven different acts will perform during the four days of the festival. Topics like nature, beauty and digital technology will be covered through dance, music, images and art.


'Play it back' - Maas td / Nastaran Razawi Khorasani
Inspired by the wood, Nastaran investigates ‘the fake and the real’. Next to the real nature of the wood Nastaran puts something artificial beside it. Against a background reminiscent of the wood, with blow-up animals and fake flowers, she playbacks famous pop songs that refer cloyingly sweet to nature.

'Niks was minder waar - Bert Scholten
Bert showcases an exposition in which he also performs. He makes this an intimate performance by only singing on request. By spinning the wheel, the visitor chooses a song from Scholten’s repertoire, which the figurehead of figurative pop music in the Netherlands will perform for you.

‘Mein Liebling’ - TRASH
The first chapter of the Mein Liebling project is a duet for and with T.r.a.s.h. dancers Lucie Petrusová en Eleni Ploumi. Different stereotypes of beauty pass the stage with a high physical energy. The women dance a duet that finds it origin in the synergy between dance and live music of the composer Han Stubbe (DAAU).

'Pandora v.0.2 beta' - Katja Heitmann
Katja is inspired by the influence of everydays' digital technologies on society and with that the arising questions about the identity of our human body. She fuses everydays' technology, the dancers’ body and the presence of the audience into unconventional performances. Who moves who? Katja is nominated for the Award of the Dutch Dance Festival 2016.

'Antithesis, the future of the image' - Michiel Vandevelde
How do images that are manipulated and edited change our view of the world? While images are a powerful tool of communication, written language fades away. What are images in fact? What holds the future? What are the consequences for the public space? Michiel Vandevelde puts forward some thesis and antithesis for these questions. The result is a show in which projected text battles against danced images and edited pop music. A literary-youtube-dance-documentary performance if you will.

NWE Vorst

 
Besides music, film, games and theatre, Incubate will bring you some exciting art by Jens Standke and Martijn Hendriks!
 
The exposition 'A Tape Runs On In Silence' by Jens Standke is composed of images and sounds. The sounds are translations of materials, like dust particles, collected on duct tape. The materials for the sounds are collected from the residents in Tilburg by Jens Standke.

Dutch artist Martijn Hendriks has been staging interventions throughout Tilburg since May. You might remember his exhibition ‘Sculpture Falls in a Forest’ at our May festival, in the basement of theatre De NWE Vorst. Hendriks has been placing a growing number of sculptures at public locations in Tilburg: parks and forest areas but also fountains supermarket freezers. During Incubate his sculpture ‘Spoon’ will be placed in a rental Volvo parked in a parking garage at Pieter Vreedeplein, in the city centre of Tilburg. The cars license plate and exact location will be revealed on Friday 9th on this page and on our Incubate Art Facebook-page. Makes art feel like an old fashioned treasure hunt, doesn’t it?
