The Noord Nederlands Toneel (NNT) theatre company
Noord Nederlands Toneel
Theatre becomes more sexy, urgent and topical. As a result of this, a big theatre-company like NNT stages productions which are relevant for a broad and modern audience. About people who try to find a hold and structure in a chaotic world. Exciting performances which make new connections between art disciplines, between art and the world, between makers and audiences and audiences mutually. In Groningen and other theatres through the Netherlands where NNT performs, places are created where audiences feel at home and part of the making process, even though they just as often get shaken as comforted.
Theatre can’t exist in a social vacuum. It needs to do something with all changes around itself. Actually it has to leave doors wide open to let these developments in, to make new connections and engage with audiences about social changes.
''A WTF-experience filled with theatre, dance and music.’’
NNT is collaborating with Club Guy & Roni and Asko Schönberg K(h)AOS since the beginning of 2017. In addition there are two new artistic leaders: Guy Weizman and Julie Van den Berghe.
Guy Weizman: ‘’We are working on making a new home. A home where we are going to make theatre in a new way, in nowadays language. To get some grip on our complex world.
It is an interdisciplinary house, but because some people get scared by that word, we call it Theatre Plus: performance + dance + music. It results in a WTF-experience which will shake you all over.”
