Night Shift: from dusk till dawn
Opera, Ghent


Going all-in in one of Ghent’s architectural

and cultural pearls: the Opera!


Sometimes you’re going big, and we’re really pushing to go further in taking over grand and iconic buildings inhabited by art institutions and established art organisations.

This Night Shift marks the fourth stop in the project مُثَلَّث [muṯallaṯ]. For a unique Night Shift series taking place in 4 different cities, Gouvernement partners up in 2020 with Arts Center Vooruit in Ghent, Khashabi Theatre in Haifa and A.M. Qattan Foundation in Ramallah for مُثَلَّث [muṯallaṯ]. It’s an intensive exchange project highlighting collaborations, dialogues and connections between artists from different backgrounds, disciplines and countries.

As always, Night Shift offers artists who juggle with different disciplines and everything in between, both an artistic wild card in a building which is part of an established art organisations, and an eclectic public platform. Via an informal setting and by evoking a creative playground, they are free to present projects ranging from finished and crossover projects to thrilling experiments and try-outs, while triggering new relations with the public.


The stamp is clear and visible
the marks are made
the night shift is irreversible.
