Songs for VONK (Preview)
In Songs for Vonk new songs are written containing influences from contemporary written music as well as avant garde pop; cross genre, driven by a curiosity for unexpected mixed languages.
Since its 2015 debut, VONK worked with composers and fellow musicians in surprising collaborations, as well as with artists from other disciplines. In Songs for VONK, Artistic director and co-creator Nicoline Soeter is composing a new program together with the Dutch composer Brechtje van Dijk and the American composer Molly Joyce. Their personal signature gives the program an exciting diversity. Songs influenced by contemporary music and avant-garde pop; cross-genre, driven by the curiosity of unexpected mixing languages on the theme ‘Evolution’.

Because of the succes of last year, this year a second edition of Winternights!
Initiators SoAP & VIA ZUID, together with new partners partners C-Takt, GOTRA, INTRO, FASHIONCLASH and SALLY, proudly invite you to visit Winternights 2017. A nice occasion to get to know the talents of tomorrow, their works and their vision of the world.
Winternights is a preview festival during which creative talents treat the public to ‘finished’ performances, work in progress and experements. On Friday 15 and Saturday 16 December 2017, 17 makers will show their works and what they have to offer in all the nooks and crannies of this nice old factory (AINSI). A collection of makers who are connected in their search for a new language, in theater, visual arts and music; who have left the comfortable pluche of the hall behind them and present their work in unconventional locations. The programme features a selection of young makers assembled by: :
C-Takt, FASHIONCLASH, INTRO, SALLY Dansgezelschap Maastricht, GOTRA I Joost Vrouenraets, SoAP and VIA ZUID
