Night Shift


Embark on a peculiar, 12-hour-long journey covering Ghent’s historical icon. Night Shift takes over the Vooruit-building while concluding Het Theaterfestival. All kinds of artists are given free rein once again and invite you for a mesmerising experience.

Night Shift is a nomadic project creating an artistic playground in the iconic landmark of a large art organisation or institution. Artists from different disciplines can present work in an informal setting and make collective use of the eclectic, public platform provided by Gouvernement and the partners involved. As actions and interventions succeed each other swiftly, they intertwine and interconnect with the building, the public and each other.

In a 12-hour-long swirling program, the actions succeed each other swiftly, allow for new interpretations and meanings, ultimately adding multiple layers. From dazzling and subtle performances, through in situ activated interventions and installations, to other less categorizable events: the night shift is irreversible!

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

Night Shift happens on 14.09.2019 between 18:00→06:00.

Entrance is € 5, which can be bought in advance and at the doors.
