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.
Entrance is € 5, which can be bought in advance and at the doors.
Scenography by Steve Salembier, and with the help of all the volunteers.
Supported by Vlaamse Overheid / Flemish Government and Stad Gent / Cultuur Gent
