INCUBATE – 10/11 December 2016 – an annual celebration of cutting-edge culture

   incubate-dec16-111

Incubate is the annual celebration of cutting-edge culture. It is a festival exhibiting a diverse view on indie culture as a whole, including music, visual arts, film and contemporary theater, and a conference. For the upcoming December edition it brings more than 40+ cutting edge artists in an intimate context to an international audience. Black metal next to free jazz. Refreshing art next to innovating indie games.
Incubate takes place troughout more than fifteen venues in the inner-city of Tilburg.
Incubate – 10/11 December 2016

   incubate-dec16-112

Incubate Zero is the part of the programme that is FREE for all to attend. A little taste of the festival so you can decide if you want more. After the success of the previous Incubate Zero programmes, we’re proud to host another free offering of artists. So make sure to bring your friends and family and check out these acts!

On December 11th, everyone can enjoy some of the best new acts from the European underground. Divided over venues Cul de Sac and Kim’s Kroeg, the following bands will perform:

Heads
HEADS. from Berlin are a loud and noisy bunch, clearly influenced by Shellac and The Jesus Lizard: the good stuff. Their first record was released by This Charming Man Records so you know this not just your average band. Come see for yourself at Cul de Sac on Sunday December 11th.

Any Other
Remember those sweet, sweet times that we call the nineties? You might, but these kids don’t because they’re way too young. They do sound like they were there though, and they do such a killer job at it we forgot all about Kim Deal or Weezer or whatever. Who are those people anyway? Any Other excel in doing their own new thing with a sound that is beloved and feels familiar.

Fake O’s
If these Groningen locals would be a black metal band they’d be considered trve kvlt without a doubt. This hardcore punk outfit sounds like they came straight from the Bay Area in the eighties and shred like they want to show Keith Morris how it’s done. Of course Keith already knows, but he’d still be into FAKE O’s.

Sven Agaath
When you think you’ve heard it all: you’re about to find out you haven’t. Sven Agaath play shoegaton (a term they probably coined themselves and for which they should receive proper recognition), a mix between shoegaze and reggaeton. They themselves call it “a mixture of Dinosaur Jr, Sean Paul, MBV and Daddy Yankee that feels urgent and natural”. Although this will probably sound horrifying to most music fans, we can assure you – it really isn’t. Sven Agaath is for everybody that likes shoegaze but also wants to dance from time to time.

   incubate-dec16-113

The Shady Greys
The Shady Greys are an Amsterdam based dirty blues-garage duo with a nice lo-fi sound. Although using only a cajon and feet played percussions (no drums!) they’re a high energy duo with fast riffing and raw vocals.

Dead High Wire
A young band from Antwerp and Mechelen, Belgium playing a mixture of echoing postpunk and indierock. They’ve released work on Kinky Star records (La Jungle, Räpe Blossoms etc.) and Oddie Records (Teen Creeps, Mind Rays, Double Veterans etc.). These are quality labels worth a whole lot more than that ‘organic’ logo on your milk carton.

Jellephant & The Phantoms
A young guy from Arnhem named Jelle and his band called The Phantoms are psychedelic band that make us think of our fellow countrymen Yuko Yuko. With a cool, echoing lo-fi mix of psychedelica, surf and downbeat garage these kids are one of the better Dutch acts in recent years.

Wobby
Together with Tilburg natives, comic creators and founders of the small press magazine ‘Wobby’, Incubate is proud to add a Comic Fair to its December edition. This will be accompanied by an English edition of the Wobby magazine, with contributions from different artists. There will also be talks, performances and interviews, but the main event will be your chance to meet and see some of your favorite creators. Guests include Bries (BE), Sigrid Calon (NL), Charlotte Dumortier (BE), Maurice van Es (NL), Jeroen Funke (NL), KAMP HORST (NL), Knust/Extrapool (NL), Vite (BE), The Stalinskis (NL), Tieten Met Haar (BE), and Ward Zwart (BE).

Holzapfel
Incubate will finalize its two-year visual arts program Do It With Others with a special performance by German artist Olaf Holzapfel. Holzapfel is a multidisciplinary artist who has extended his practice of painting with photography, sculptures, installations and digital work. To create his architectural sculptures, Holzapfel uses a range of (often locally sourced) materials, from plastic to straw. On Saturday 10th of December Holzapfel will do a special performance with a group of participants and craftsmen, around the noble art of rope making. Making a rope from straw is a complex process, a traditional craft that few still master. Tilburg is known for its history in textiles and the use of flax and hemp, as traditionally hemp was grown for processing into rope. As Incubate always connects artists with visitors and history with contemporary art, we invite all those interested to join us and Holzapfel in this special performance.

Incubate Art Symposium
At Incubate we try to offer kicks and contemplation right next to each other. We like to learn new things while having fun; about music and art and all the wonderful things that come with it. This is why we’re delighted to host the Do It With Others symposium on December 11th at Duvelhok. Following the finissage of Olaf Holzapfel’s project the day before, the symposium will include several artists that contributed to Do It With Others over the recent years. They will be interviewed by some very interesting hosts from the Dutch contemporary art scene, discussing their past residencies and collaborative work produced in Tilburg. Make sure to catch these afternoon talks if you’re curious to meet these artists in person and ask them your questions.

Derde album van BETONFRACTION: ‘I changed my sex’

  betonfraction12

Derde album van BETONFRACTION: I changed my sex’

betonfraction11Op 12 november 2016 werd het derde album van Betonfraction gepresenteerd in Paradox Tilburg. De titel van het album is ‘I Changed My Sex’, het bevat zes nummers en is verschenen bij Blowpipe Records.

De een omschrijft de muziek als ‘hoekige, industriële prog-punk’ (3voor12), de ander als ‘gestuurde energieke chaos, die live bovendien ook nog eens fel kan ontsporen’ (Gonzo Circus). Betonfraktion is uit op beproevingen. De band mixt een licht ontvlambare cocktail van deels gestructureerde, deels geïmproviseerde energie. Frank Crijns (gitaar); Provocase (drums) en Störsender Swarth (voice ‘n’ noise) hebben alle drie uitgebreide ervaring op het podium. Ze gaan inhoudelijke, theatrale en muzikale statements niet uit de weg. Betonfraktion is luid, solide, gedreven en queer.

6-Track EP
‘I CHANGED MY SEX’
1. Those Smelly Rags Aren’t Mine 4:02
2. Darby Crashed The Party 5:37
3. Dear Diarrhea 5:30
4. Pak & Kietel (Kieteldood) 5:22
5. Wotcha Gonna Do 7:17

BLOOMSBURY FESTIVAL 2016 LONDON (19 – 23 OCTOBER)

bloomsbury2016-2Bloomsbury Festival 2016 London October 19 to 23 october

For hundreds of years, Bloomsbury has been catalyst for ideas that have had impact across the world. Bloomsbury Festival celebrates contemporary Bloomsbury; a hotbed of creativity and pioneering development which has one of the youngest and most diverse populations in the country.

For five days in October, Bloomsbury will be full to the brim with artistic, scientific and literary events for all ages and tastes, from breakfast until late in the evenings taking place in the streets, parks, museums, galleries, laboratories and public and (normally) private buildings of this vibrant cultural quarter. There will be over 150 events created with over 100 partners.

Inspired by the centenary of SOAS and with Bloomsbury residents reflecting one of highest levels of diversity in the UK, the theme selected for this year’s festival is Language. Language comes in many forms; speech, symbols, non-verbal communication, performance language, dance notation, morse code, sign language, computer code. Language will be explored throughout all the events; from the cuneiform inscriptions on tablets of clay at the British Museum inspiring a collaboration by an artist and historian, to investigations of Legal and medical ‘languages’ that are used in many firms and laboratories and hospitals in Bloomsbury.

Baroness Valerie Amos, Director of SOAS says: ‘As we celebrate 100 years of SOAS teaching and research, we are delighted that the Bloomsbury Festival’s theme this year is dedicated to language. SOAS is a special place with its unique blend of languages, regional and discipline expertise. We are proud of our Bloomsbury location and, with the addition of Senate House North Block, the growth of our Bloomsbury Campus. As we look forward to the next 100 years, we will continue to play a central role in the cultural and creative life of the area.’

Kate Anderson, Bloomsbury Festival director says ‘Bloomsbury Festival is unique, as is the area of Bloomsbury in which leading institutions and world-class creative organisations rub shoulders with primary schools and lawyers. We make the Festival with over 100 Bloomsbury partners, providing opportunities for unusual collaborations and development opportunities for all. The result is a very distinctive festival indeed! And with over 150 events including all art forms, science, architecture, walks, technology, outdoor music, debating and hubs focusing on families, I think we can safely say there is something for everyone at Bloomsbury Festival.

bloomsbury2016-3A few of this year’s headline events include Coram’s Songs, a promenade performance set in the known and secret spaces around the Foundling Hospital. 2016 marks the 275th anniversary of the Foundling Hospital and the 80th anniversary of Coram’s Fields. Created by director Emma Bernard in partnership with renowned composers including Jocelyn Pook, Orlando Gough, Michael Henry and Melanie Pappenheim, Coram’s Songs is inspired by this unique seven acre, greenfield site in central London that has been preserved as a sanctuary for children for circa 300 years.

Step Out Store Street will be a night-time street party with a twist: the street will be transformed by an array of artists and dancers, showcasing and teaching different dance disciplines from around the world, from Bollywood to B­Boy and Swing to Line dancing. Pa-BOOM’s fiery pyrotechnic art installations will make a welcome return and the event will also feature a premiere of a new street dance commission from acclaimed dancer Tony Adigun’s Avant Garde Youth Dance Company. The street’s eclectic mix of boutiques, shops and restaurants will each house a different art, music and dance experience and an abundance of street food and bars will be available.

Other headline events will include The Last Whisperers at the British Museum, Calling Tree in St George’s Gardens, a specially curated programme at The Wellcome Trust, Goodensemble and ENO at Goodenough College, and SOAS’ World Music Stage inside the newly opened north block of Senate House.

The festival centres around three main hub venues Goodenough college, UCL, and Conway Hall with activities also taking place at a further 20+ satellite venues including the Wellcome Trust, the British Museum, the British Library, Pushkin House, Charles Dickens Museum, Coram’s Fields, the Music Room, Bloomsbury Hotel, the Curzon Bloomsbury, and Store Street. There will be lunchtime events Wed 19 – Fri 21 for locals and workers to attend and breakfast events and talks in local cafes.

Every year the Festival runs a competition for BA (Hons) Graphic Communication Design, Central Saint Martin’s students to design the festival logo. This year’s winning entry is by Wies van der Wal which the judges felt illustrated the theme of language, the coming together of ideas and joy of the Festival perfectly.

bloomsbury2016-4Bloomsbury is an area of the London Borough of Camden, in central London, between Euston Road and Holborn, developed by the Russell family in the 17th and 18th centuries into a fashionable residential area. It is notable for its array of garden squares, literary connections (exemplified by the Bloomsbury Group), and numerous cultural, educational and health-care institutions.

Established in 2006, Bloomsbury Festival is a creative explosion of arts, science, literature, culture and fun throughout the streets, parks, museums, galleries, laboratories and public and (normally) private buildings of this vibrant cultural quarter. For hundreds of years Bloomsbury has been a catalyst for ideas that have had impact across the world.

Bloomsbury Festival celebrates contemporary Bloomsbury; a hotbed of creativity and pioneering development which has one of the youngest and most diverse populations in the country. Created with its extraordinary community including more libraries, museums, and educational establishments than any other part of the city, the Festival acts as catalyst bringing together its diverse population, and as a spur to develop new projects and new ideas. Each year, the Festival attracts an audience of around 50,000 people.

# The final programme will be online on Bloomsbury festival website

PRODUCTIE MATA HARI VAN HET NATIONAAL BALLET BINNENKORT OP BLU-RAY & DVD

# succesvolle nieuwe productie van Het Nationale Ballet binnenkort uit op Dvd & Blu-ray # stersolist Anna Tsygankova danst hoofdrol # release datum 30 september 2016

matahari-nat-ballet-2016-2Mata Hari van Het Nationale Ballet komt vrijdag 30 september uit op Blu-ray en Dvd. Het nieuwe, grootschalige ballet over het turbulente leven van de Nederlandse spionne én danseres Mata Hari ging afgelopen februari in wereldpremière bij Het Nationale Ballet. Het ballet verbeeldt het leven van de Friese Margaretha Geertruida Zelle – zoals Mata Hari’s echte naam luidde. – een van de meest iconische vrouwen in de Nederlandse geschiedenis.
Stersoliste Anna Tsygankova danst haar veelgeprezen hoofdrol van Mata Hari. Het leverde Tsygankova een nominatie op voor de dansprijs de Zwaan voor meest indrukwekkende dansprestatie 2016 – bekendmaking 7 oktober 2016. De mannelijke hoofdrollen worden gedanst door eerste solisten Jozef Varga, Artur Shesterikov en Casey Herd.

Choreograaf Ted Brandsen zoomde vooral in op Mata Hari’s vermogen om zichzelf ‘als een Madonna of Lady Gaga van honderd jaar terug – steeds opnieuw uit te vinden’ aldus Brandsen. Daarbij is het vooral haar overlevingsdrang, haar wil om hoe dan ook iets van haar leven te maken, die hem raken.
‘Het gewone, reële leven was voor haar te klein, dus maakte ze dat leven groter, creëerde ze haar eigen realiteit.’
‘Mata Hari’s persoonlijkheid is’, zegt librettist Janine Brogt, ‘groter dan het leven zelf. Haar handelingen waren altijd theatraal, van een geïntensiveerde realiteit. Ze was een godin, duivelin, tovenares, diva, verschoppelinge. Ze was net zo veranderlijk als het weer, had tientallen gezichten. Ze is een mysterie, een droom, een mythe.’

Artistiek team
Ted Brandsen (choreografie) werkte naast Janine Brogt (libretto), samen met de Britse componist Tarik O’Regan. De kostuums voor Mata Hari zijn ontworpen door François-Noël Cherpin. Het decor- en lichtontwerp is van het ontwerpersduo Clement & Sanôu (Eddy van der Laan en Pepijn Rozing). Met muzikale begeleiding van Het Balletorkest onder leiding van Matthew Rowe.

De pers over Mata Hari:
“Rijke, weelderige scenes (…) Met zijn enscenering heeft Ted Brandsen een indrukwekkend monument gecreëerd (…) een lust voor het oog.”
SWR Radio Duitsland, Natali Kurth

“(…) magistrale Anna Tsygankova in de hoofdrol. Mata Hari is een grootschalig ballet en er is uitgepakt (…) fraaie kostuums (…) inventieve decors (…) Ook de keuze van Tarik O’Regan als componist is een gelukkige.”
De Telegraaf, Bertjan ter Braak (****)

matahari-nat-ballet-2016-1“Een daverend Gesamtkunstwerk (…) Grote, wervelende groepsstukken en krachtige duetten wisselen elkaar af. (…) daverende uitvoering van de dansers.”
Theaterkrant.nl, Marcelle Schots (****)

“Anna Tsygankova is on stage practically from curtain-up to curtain call, which is a real treat. Her movements have a feline quality that combines tensile strength with softness and fluidity, suggesting a piece of velvet elastic.”
Dance Europe, Susan Pond

“The scope is breathtaking. The ballet finds its heart in the woman herself. (…) Anna Tsygankova brings her talent and charisma to the role, creating a woman of leonine courage and one we genuinely care about.”
Dancing Times, Maggie Foyer

Mata Hari is opgenomen in High Definition met 5.1 surround sound. De regie is in handen van Jeff Tudor van 3 Minutes West in een coproductie met Het Nationale Ballet. Het gezelschap en de Amsterdamse productiemaatschappij werkten eerder samen bij de registraties van Cinderella, het Hans van Manen Festival, Giselle, Don Quichot, Gala – 50-jaar Het Nationale Ballet en Notenkraker & Muizenkoning. De dvd en Blu-ray worden uitgebracht door EuroArts. Beide uitgaven zijn onder andere verkrijgbaar in de (web)winkel van Nationale Opera & Ballet, Amsterdam.

Strek even de benen, haal wat te drinken en wissel literaire en culinaire geneugten af in de vele rondgangen waar ook de traditionele boekenmarkt verrijst. Om vervolgens weer terug te keren naar de omarming van de Grote Zaal waar de dichters en het publiek, elkaar steeds dieper de Nacht in leiden. Gelijktijdig met de boekenmarkt vindt een presentatie van kleine uitgevers, literaire tijdschriften en organisaties plaats.

Dichters:
Jan Baeke
Charlotte Van den Broeck
Hans Dorrestijn
Charles Ducal

Traditioneel blijft geheim wie hoe laat optreedt. Altijd op de hoogte van het laatste nieuws? Schrijf je in voor de nieuwsbrief!

Goed om te weten: de ‘Nacht’ duurt van 20.00 tot ±03.00, maar het is geen standaard van A tot Z-programma: het evenement kent doorlopend een vrije inloop dus je bent vrij om te komen en te gaan wanneer je wilt.
