Pro­gram Kun­st­nacht 2023 announced

Saturday September 16 you can discover what Nijmegen and surroundings have to offer regarding arts and culture, during the 12th edition of Kunstnacht. No less than 60 cultural organisations give you a true journey of discovery throughout the city. Because participants with different backgrounds are linked, unique cross-overs are born.

The program of Kunstnacht 2023 is presented now: visit various dance, theatre and musical performances by for instance De Basis, TG Greppel, Introdans or Phion, in the centre of Nijmegen and the NYMA-area. There, also the Nachtfeest (Night party) will be held, hosted by Doornroosje and Down the Rabbit Hole.

New: zones

For the second time, Kunstnacht is organised this year by Hubert and ACBN. After a succesful start, the organisation now tackles two issues: the distance between the locations and the capacity per location. Where there were 28 locations to visit throughout the city last year, now the complete program is divided into four compact zones. Each zone has at least one location with a large capacity and multiple programs, so there is always something to do and lang waiting lines are not to be expected. This way, you can see more programs in less time. In the city centre, everything starts at 7PM. From 9PM onwards, you can also visit programs at the NYMA-area.

Stadsschouwburg, Doornroosje and Paraplufabrieken are the yellow zone. Here, Introdans and Open Source Radio drag you into a dance along and Rollende Mina’s and Brebl let jazz and skateboarding come together. UitnachtArnhem and Posttheater literally create a bubble filled with music and theatre, The Big Draw organises interactive drawing performances. Experimental music is provided by the collaberation between Extrapool and Doornroosje, Schouwburg presents an adventurous musical path of 3Violas. De Basis shows that new technical and artistical developments collide, Groeispurt and Stroomversneller present makers of the future. POPOP lets various performances emerge, such as a mobil art installation. Vierdaagsefeesten welcomes you with street theatre, Wintertuin and Platform Post research how language shapes our reality and Go Short and Proces-Verbaal creates new pieces of art in which movie and poetry come together.
